hogcowboy- I did an internet search for MC salvage yards; I filled out a form on maybe 6-8 of them asking about exhaust. Maybe a dozen more had a good search engine to check their current inventory but didn't have any exhaust for my bike. I did find 1 salvage yard that had 4-5 exhausts ranging from pretty nice ($350) to rough (still $200). eBay has some but the sellers are REALLY proud of them
I have emailed 2 craigslist posters; no response yet. I hope to get a "wanted" ad on CL this weekend. I am already registered here so I thought no harm no foul to ask. I hope to join the Vstar forum this weekend too.
I found out this week I go to training for possible job transfer in March, So I will be studying/ working on that the next 6 weeks or so. Bike isn't going to move much☹ . But HEY- I own it ??
Slick nick - thanks for the info. I saw several places that listed exhaust for 1999-2004. I will check before I order.
