Is there a specific aftermarket pipe I can get (hopefully used) that will mate with the 2 into 1 header and fit the mounting of the stock pipe?

I really can't say for sure. I would assume that there were slip-ons available for your bike. But, that exhaust wasn't widely used on other models so I don't know what there was, or is still in production.

Since that exhaust is from a pre-rubber mount 883R, that's what you need to look for. Someone may come along that knows that info, but if you haven't already checked there, you'd probably have much better luck finding model specific info like this over in the frame mount section of xlforum, HERE.

WOW!

Where the HELL did this come from???





Someone at the MoCo must be monitoring this thread! The above pic is of a 2013 883R! I just discovered it quite by accident when trying to find how many years the exhaust on mikesova's bike was in production. I ended up see a reference to a 2013 883R on a google search and clicked on it when I saw it was Harley's site!

Just WOW!

http://www.harley-davidson.com/en_AP...-roadster.html


Or have I just been ignorant and behind the times?

I know this wasn't on the site a few months ago...




Now some of the complainers can stop complainin'...
Where you at Jerry? Here's your chance!

Now, where's the 1200 version???

And THIS is what I was talking about with the small, higher quality digital unit. Seems like they work well, from what I've read, but I have no personal experience.

And HERE'S the more pricey HD factory combo unit.
Thanks, guys - I should have said, it's a 93 XLH883.

The Trail Tech is really neat (and cheap!) - wonder how visible the LCD is with polarized glasses (which I wear 100% of the time).

The MicroTach is interesting too (LEDs, too).
What riff is it that they are playing in the demo?




That's right! AC/DC's "Shoot To Thrill", a tender love ballad.
I am wondering about a compact analog guage, too.

Mike, Very low miles 883R stock slip on. PM an offer if you're interested. Also have a solo seat from the R.

Yeah, Harley has decided that the American buyers have no interest in a traditional "sporty" Sportster. They have helped morph the model line into a "mini big twin" or "starter big twin" bike.

The reason I've saved all my take-off parts is because I realize I'll have to put forward controls, lowering shocks, and all the chrome back on if I ever decide to sell mine.

Sad but true. I doubt I'll ever sell mine, I like it that much. My goal is to wear it out before I'm too old to hold it up and give it to my son. So far the the only thing getting worn out is me.

Holy shit! You're definitely right, that was NOT listed in their current model lineup a month ago. That is a nice looking bike!!!!!!

EDIT: international site DAMNIT FUCK.

Yeah. Fortunately it isn't too difficult to convert the newer models to be more "sporty". And like you, I kept all of my original parts in case I ever decide to sell it, although I doubt I ever will. Although I still plan to get Ohlins and a tuner at some point, I'm pretty happy with my 48 as it sits now.

This seems quite a bit like the old Roadster to me.

Yeah, sorry about that. In my excitement I completely missed the "International" thing at the top. I mean, hell, it was all in English, looked like the US site and it appears that the bike is even wearing a California tag.

Not that it really matter to me personally since I've already converted my 48 to have similar performance to the 1200 version of the R, but still... I actually like the styling of my bike better anyway, but that's a very personal thing, and that 883R is a good looking bike.
