View Full Version : Megaphones on 883r

I was wondering if the 2:2 Megaphone exhaust that fits on an 02 XL883R, would fit on my 03 XL883R. I don't see any megaphone applications for any 02 or 03 883's on the website. And I know they exist. Any help here?

In the 2000 model year Harley changed the rear shock mount on the Sportsters. The XR style pipes ('86-99) mount off the upper rear shock mount, we did not update this system to adapt to the new "recessed bolt" shock.
We have had customers advise us the system can be used with a little ingenuity/fabrication.

So I can buy an XR Style (Megaphone 2:2) pipe for my 2003 XL883r and all I would have to do is modify the connection between the upper shock bolt and the pipe?

Thanks for the reply!

I would suggest looking at the instuctions and the upper shock mount on the earlier XL.

Would these fit my 03 883r? I see they are available for the 04-07. These dont seem to use the shock bolt, how do these differ?

The X-Pipes were designed to fit the newer "rubber mounted " motors, not the pre-'04 XLs.
