    the only diff between the 2 is one is a shorter body from what i understand

    The way I read it is the 517L is a short core muffler,meaning it can handle a higher displacement engine,maybe I am wrong.

    The shorter core will produce less back pressure,if your not planning on a 103 upgrade I would stick to the 517 JMO

    09 ultra, I had them put bassani FLH-517 on before I rode the new bike home,
    They are much louder than stock, I have enjoyed them for 2K miles without any complaints.. Price was better than the others.. Im pleased.. --Chino
