Muffler

I blew up my muffler on the weekend. All the dealers I contacted say that it is discontinued. They can set me up with aftermarket, but louder exhausts.

Does anyone have a line on OEM or at least OEM sound level new mufflers, preferably from Canada?

What are you riding ?
I live in Canada, and replaced the obsolete OEM muffler on my 450 with one made by Kimpex. It's better than the OEM and it's quiet. Came from a Canadian company.

Caltric also offers mufflers/exhaust , I have one on a 300 for a few years now with no problems , they are lighter material than OEM , but OEM is no longer available for my 300's , the sound is about the same , not loud at all , the OEM was right at $600 if still available , I would have never paid that for one anyways ---

another thing I can tell you if you have a 300 , which for some reason I think that is what you got , if oyu have the 1st gen , a 88 u-shaped pipe/muffler assembly will take the place of the 1st gen / 2nd design straight pipe set up ( up to like 92 ) and all the mounting bolts will line up , but the 1st gen pipes won't interchange with the 2nd gen as the mount holes are offset by a lot

One click to see all his other posts says he has a 2005 Foreman 500

And if that is true, sure enough it is discontinued: https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/ho...an-4x4/muffler

I would some used ones would be available but can't search for them now.

Muffler from 05-11 Foreman looks to be discontinued, but I bet an 05-14 Rubicon muffler is the same. I'd check before I order a new one though.

Or get a used one from powersportsnation.com

Kimpex Canada has a muffler for less than $200. -
My Kimpex is made of heavier material, installed in 15 min., and is quiet.

Should have been more specific .... apologies.
The Kimpex for the 450 Foreman has the curved pipe and does take about 15 min. to install.
The muffler in your link Jeep looks to be the one I looked at also.
The 2005 Foreman was used to look this p/n up on their 'search' feature. Install time unknown.

I'm guessing if it installed in 15 mins it is not this one....
