It has been a wile but if I remember correctly on the outlet side of the muffler there are 6 screws that you will remove. I pictured them circled in red. On the inlet side there are rivets that must be drilled out. Then the whole assemble can be pulled out of the muffler body. It is pulled out from inlet side of the muffler.
Thanks Allen, I think the rivets on the inlet side are what I missed.

Sorry....I just saw your PM.

I drilled the spot welds on the small (inlet) side of the muffler to get to the internals. Then I put it back together with screws nuts and washers.

If you're not in a hurry I have a spare muffler you could practice on, but I won't be able to ship it until maybe the end of this week. Just pay for the shipping.

No worries Mark, I may be getting a set from
Sean but if not I would take you up on it. Thanks much, you guys have been a lot of help.

I wish
Vmax Gen1/Kerker = Bad ass
Vmax Gen2/Kerker = Really bad ass

“Rolling” through the pipe or not, it gives me oomlocks. (Ferangi reaction)
Kerker still made it for the gen 2 I love the kerker sound so much

Yes that was me, the mufflers did crack I believe from the exhaust pulses amplified in the empty chamber. Sounded cool while it lasted.

The mufflers do have some quieting ability but do almost nothing with the cat in place. Very easy to prove just pull them of and you'll see the bike is still quiet.

I did the same thing you did as well, I made my own Y-Pipes to fit into the mufflers by welding up a couple of off the shelf exhaust fittings. In the end I decided to run Kerker mufflers instead.
this sound this are kerker?
