    I just responded to a PM about this; but may as well answer here for everyone's benefit.

    Yes, those are 'universal fit' mufflers from JC Whitney. I am also using additional 'baffle inserts' ahead of the mufflers, and still they're a little too loud for my taste.

    On my blog at http://foothillryder.com/the-tiger-cub-project/ (bottom of the page) are three pics of what I've just installed, along with a quick audio/video clip of a cold start. As soon as I can I'll go capture a more complete sound byte. My first impressions (I did a nice little 35-mile loop yesterday) are that these mufflers are several dB quieter, and have a more mellow tone than the previous ones.

    Very happy with my Arrow 2 to 1 with the baffle removed. Engine barks and growls now and I love it. Loud but not too loud. Def save a ton of weight going to the Arrow.

    I have no idea what sort of silencers are on my Scrambler. They are a reverse cone set with no name on them and they sound awesome! Very nice chrome also. Better power then the original silencers too. The re-jetted carbs make these silencers ideal. Anyone know what type they may be? Also, I can't help but mention that I'm looking to buy a used pair of header pipes for my scrambler. Please let me know if you have some to sell! Thanks!

    Not sure about that. I didn't ride very long with the originals. I can tell you the 2 to 1 arrow does get hot. Not too bad wearing jeans. No way you're wearing shorts unless you want to get branded by the pipe.

    The Emgo reverse cone silencers were obnoxiously loud and sounded empty/tinny on my Scrambler. They had maybe 80 miles on them. I pulled them apart to see that there was almost no packing inside. I repacked them with fluffy FMF packing, and it now sounds like a marauding bear. Deep growl, almost perfect (to me).

    Most of the aftermarket cans for this bike are too expensive especially once you consider the fact that youll have to remap with the proper map and likely need to address the intake side as well. Youre rather quickly at a grand just to play ball. I hole-sawed my cans and had the dealer upload the TOR map for a total expense of $70.00. Bike runs perfect and sounds pretty good too!

    I finally found a sound clip for this Shark 2-1 low pipe. It didn't sound as good as I'd hoped but it's really hard to find sound clips that convey the realistic sound in person, plus it's on a Bonnie so the cadence is different.

    So far it seems like the Arrow pipes have the nicest tone. For a low pipe I'm thinking it's worth the effort to get the Arrow low pipe to fit. I rode a Thruxton with the Arrow low pipe and really enjoyed the sound. Though I like the look of the Shark, it's very vintage looking with a nicely tucked in fit.

    The Shark has a DB killer you can get off.
    I think that will be my next purchase.

    I have mounted this Shark and the sound is just awesome.
    Deep, not to loud at stabilized speed but when you accelerate... :evil
