Hey all....getting back into Motorcycles after a 15 year hiatus. Recently picked up a '98 Honda Shadow Spirit 1100. I am far from a bike mechanic so I am curious of what occurred with the exhaust system? Obviously if was modified but is it legal? First pic shows the standard bike and the second pic is mine. Take note of the pipes. Any help?

Thanks!
David

Slightly loud but it just passed inspection this past Monday. :surprise:
So it has mufflers? What brand are they? Any emission stamps on them?

Is it a situation where I can have a shop just add mufflers back on or am I in it for a whole new exhaust system?

If it's not that loud it probably has mufflers. Without mufflers it would be screaming loud. There has to be something on there, although the pictures make it look like it doesn't

That I don't know. The seller had it inspected Monday and I bought it Tuesday so unless he yanked them off right after inspection, it passed like that.

Oh, ****. You can't ride that like it is. It appears that the prior owner removed the whole exhaust. Hopefully he didn't cut them off. If so, you need a whole system.

No idea. How do you know it really did pass?

Code:


Inspection paperwork in my hand and a 10/20 inspection sticker on the fork.
I guess mufflers are optional there!

Could be prior owner rode it that way but put extensions (?) or something on for the inspection, then removed that "something" again after it passed. Just a guess. Good luck :}
