Exhaust system

I have a 2007 Rhino 660, I would like to quiet the exhaust system and have a set of new mufflers from a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Are there any problems with replacing the existing muffler with two mufflers from a Harley?

Thanks in advance for any feedback

You can hook those mufflers up to the ends of your exhaust system. That would make it nice and quiet

rhino exhaust system

My stock exhaust pipe broke at about 750 hrs. I welded it back together and that lasted another 700 hours. I gave up and bought a TU Brothers exhaust system which was much louder than the stock exhaust so I machined a baffle that attached to the rear of the silencer. Another problem with system is the flange mounting ring that connects the pipe to the silencer. The attachment screws will not remain tight no matter how much loctite you apply and the flange is a 35 dollar part. I drilled holes in the flange cooling fins and ran stainless steel safety wire through the holes so if the screws back out I won't lose the flange. Every 25 hours I check and tighten the mounting screws.

I just want to make sure I understand what you're trying to do. You're trying to make your Rhino quiet like a Harley???

Fungus, The stock Harley mufflers meet the EPA requirement of 86-DBA @ 50 feet. Grafting them to a Rhino exhaust requires a welder, hacksaw and and some small diameter exhaust tubing. Not all Harley's are loud just the ones ridden by the 'Look at me crowd' or 'Loud Pipes Save Lives'. My HD is as quiet as it can be due leaving the exhaust system stock.

One stock muffler will do. You will need to do some fabrication work to adapt it. I hope you have access to a MIG or TIG welder.
