    Default Supermeg Breakdown & Dimensions

    Hi - Can you tell me how many parts the Supereg consists of?

    Obviously the muffler is a separate part but are the two headers one assembly with the collector or are they:

    2 separate parts : 2 headers "in one" assembly + collector?

    3 separate parts : 2 separate headers + collector ?

    1 part : collector and headers all one assembly

    Also, what is the length of the muffler?

    And if the headers/collector is one assembly what is the effective length of the whole thing?

    Am looking to see what size container I will need to transport them in on the way to the dyno

    Many thanks

    Thanks to you too, appreciate it - BUT, is not the box dimensions I need. Can you let me know the answers to the questions I listed regarding the supermeg itself.

    The exhaust I ordered is: Supertrapp 828-71572 2:1 SuperMeg Exhaust System

    Can you tell me how many parts this Supermeg consist of?

    As I wrote in OP, i need to work out how to transport and I will not be using the original packing - and i can't wait until i receive it

    Many thanks again

    Any chance of helping - maybe if no measurements at least tell me how many parts in breaks down into. If the headers are separate they might fit in my saddlebags for example

    SuperMeg;
    The headpipe is one piece (complete) roughly 30" long x 20" tall-it comes packaged with all three heat shields wrapped in bubble wrap.
    The muffler is roughly 24" long x 4" diameter
    That Softail system has a mount bracket that is roughly 18" long x 5"
    There is a hardware kit (bagged) roughly 6"x 6"x6"

    Headpipe/heatshields/muffler/bracket/hardware/instructions = 6 items in the box.

    You would have to have some pretty big saddlebags to stuff it in, I wouldn't recommend, I think you are asking for something to happen-I think you could strap the entire box on your bike to transport-I think it would stay protected better and it's easy to strap a big box on the bike. Good luck with it, get it on and go have fun, thanks David!

    Thanks again jwells - pipes now all safe and sound in my garage ready for fitment (used a seafarer kit bag to transport them). I bought a pack of extra discs to experiment when I get to the Dyno. Can you tell me how many discs the screws that come with the pipes can hold? Do I need the race screws if I go over 20 discs?

    Best regards

    David

    Ha - just found this post by Fanny: Our standard 2 inch disc screws allow installation of 1-20 discs.=P/N 404-7206
    Our "Race" screws are 3 inches long and allow installation of 15-34 discs.=P/N 404-7306
    You would want to consider longer screws if you are installing more than 20 discs on one muffler.

    Awesome!
    You can usually get away with a few more discs than 20, but you are running fewer thread engagement-don't go over 22. Or the open end cap, that flows the equivalent of about 10 discs.
    Other than knowing you have an 84-11 Softail, you have not told us anything about the bike/build, so guessing it is stock (intake/breather) I would start with 16-18 discs and go from there. Be sure to use all of the supplied anti-seize in the threads of the muffler body before installing the discs/screws.
