EXHAUST on the CHEAP!

Since I bought my new to me 2006 Rhino I have had to DE-BLING it! Kid before me made it a 'rolling camp radio'. After I rewired it, removed four cheap roof lights, several stereo related mounts, tightened EVERY BOLT, Etc, I was ready to rock with my own upgrades. First was a electric fuel pump, then new seat mounts, repaired factory doors, then the EXHAUST! Lets get something straight right now.....I'm cheap, er frugal. I can generally find a cheaper yet just as good alternative to most high dollar mods. I removed the wasted factory muffler, left the original header, and built my own exhaust....NO WELDING! I went to JEG'S, bought a Thrush Turbo muffler, a Prebent 2" diameter 3.5" radius bend pipe, two universal hangers and three 2" muffler clamps. After I removed the factory exhaust pipe, I slipped a tight fitting piece of pipe about two inches long over the Yamaha pipe, test fit the 2" Prebent 'U', cut it to size, slipped on muffler, added a small tailpipe made from the remnant 'U' bend and clamped it all tight. I supported the connection and the muffler. Had a beer! Sounds GREAT! Not loud, Not quiet, Looks good, Not expensive....Goldilocks would be real proud. Oh Yeah...How Much? Well, Muffler $23, Pipe $14, Clamps $12, Hangers $16... so about $65! BTW, I only used the small end of the adapter for my sleeve, sorry about the fuzzy rear shot. I really could not be happier.

Is your new setup louder, quieter or the same as stock? My stock exhaust is on its last leg and I would like it quieter.

Looks good. Do you have a bed delete on it?

I made my own using a tractor muffler. I made a thread on here about it also.

Yes I have a bed delete. I have been told my set up is a lot smoother and mellower than stock....maybe not quieter but certainly not louder. It has a really nice rumble when accelerating. BTW... I thought about the Tractor Muffler but thought it might be TOO quiet for my taste. I am really pleased so far. Thanks.

The fo-4 has a baffle and a good sound. A lil louder than stock. You could go with a fo-14 which is straight thru and a lot louder. I think I posted a video of mine.

Also, what is the adapter piece in the parts picture for? I'm a newbie to exhaust stuff if you couldn't tell.

Concerning the Adapter...I cut off the small end and slipped it over the stock Yamaha pipe. I needed that because of the difference in pipe size...metric to inch dimensions. It basically acts as a sleeve or bushing. Now my U-Bend 2" pipe slips over and clamped. On the hangers, well I took the pictures before I installed em. No big deal. Simple universal jobs that I attached to the clamps and to the frame. Very secure.

CHP say that since its an Automotive muffler, and baffled at that, that it meets offroad requirements. Super Shops huh. I haven't thought of them in years. They were cool back when we had Leo's Stereo and Pacific Stereo!

I have put this same muffer on mine. sounds nice , I also ran a tip all the way out the back to beyond the tail gate ( bumper area ) . This greatly reduced the rumble of the exhaust from under the bed area. almost finshed up with it. should be ready to ride in a few days. I got the muffler at advance auto Mini turbo thrush . $29 has a local muffler shop bend the tip.
