Weight of stock muffler cans

Can anyone tell me the weight of the stock muffler cans on an '04?

My bike has carbon fiber slip-ons, and they are extremely light, but DANG!, They Are Loud!

I'm thinking about getting some stockers, but have no idea how much they weigh.

Any help would be appreciated.

A metric fuck-ton and that weight is carried pretty high on the chassis too. You can definitely feel the difference in weight way more than you can feel the difference in power output

I concur they're heavy and it's weight that is up high so you feel it more.

These twin motors blow through packing. How many miles on your cans? Reason I ask is it might be time for a repack and if it's been neglected like so many used exhausts I've come across there may not be shit left in there which will definitely make it loud... Unless it's a D&D system then just remove it from your bike take it to the nearest dumpster place it in there and leave it in there.
