Thread: Motorcycle Exhaust Question

  1. #1

    Default Motorcycle Exhaust Question

    I have a customer who has a 2010 Harley Street Glide and he want his heat shields and mufflers powder coated Gloss Black. I am pretty sure that the standard powder will hold up on the heat shields but will it hold up on the mufflers ?

    Regular shields and slip-on muffs are $15/l.f.

    The rice bike cans are different because you have to take them apart (at least I do), so I get $90 each for those.

    Do you usually drill the rivets and do all the disassembly and reassembly, or have the customer do it?

    What happens if you cook it assembled? Some of the factory ones (mufflers) are welded together - can they be coated?

    Thanks.

    Yes, I take them apart by drilling the rivets. On a couple of sets I did, they had some road rash and some dents-n-dings that had to be worked from the inside out. So I had no choice but to take them apart. Plus the stainless parts all needed a good polishing.

    I don't know about factory seal crotch-rocket cans - haven't done any yet. But I've done several factory HD muffs and they wont come apart either. They get cooked as is. No complaints so far

    They'll take exhaust heat, so curing heat shouldn't be an issue.

    I got the mufflers last night and the mufflers on this one came apart and the baffles and packing came out of them pretty easy.

    I am gonna try and get these done sometime this weekend
