Fish Tails

Hey Guys I'm new here and have a few questions. I tried a few searches with out any success.

I'm looking for fish Tail end caps for my 98 RK classic. (stock pipes) Any suggestions?


How tall of Apes can I go without changing wiring/cables?

Thanks in advance
Brad

I did not realize that stock pipes had replaceable end caps...always learning something new here.

Re: Fish Tails

If tips of mufflers do not have set screws for exchanging tips, here is a option:

It/they have a tapered end cap that bolts on. I have not taken the caps off but assumed they could be changed out with a different cap.

Re: Fish Tails

I did not know that Harley installed stock mufflers with removable end caps. Measure the part that goes into the muffler body. With that measurement we should be able to tell what size insert you need.

The stock mufflers were miter cut, S E slip ons had changeable ends, probably an add on
