aftermarket HD mufflers on your Nomad
By El Sid
I was tired of the limited selection of exhaust available for the Nomad so I decided to explore the possibilities. I did this mod to my Nomad several years ago and many have asked what the trick was. Its really very simple. Thought I would share it with you.
If you are currently running V&Hs Bagger Duals or other aftermarket exhaust on your Nomad you have options for your mufflers. Any exhaust system that consists of 1 3/4" head pipes allows you to easily do this mod to adapt most any aftermarket mufflers as long as they are 1 3/4" I.D. at the front connection.
By fabricating a simple offset bracket like the one shown here you can open up your options for a wide range of mufflers.
What You Need
1. Material 1 wide flatstock steel by 1/8 thick (available at any hardware store) for the simple hangar bracket
2. Two mufflers with 1.75" ID pipe at the front connection
Tools - No special tools required; just a drill to drill the 4 holes in the flat stock and either a bench vice or a stepped surface (cement, not bricks) where you can whack on the bar stock to make bends if needed.
