I don't think they are removable. But, I have not looked at the stock mufflers to verify.

Basically what you se sticking out is the main part of the exhaust and as "mrwonderfull" says you have to cut the end cap of at the weld.
The photos shows what i did to mine and what happens if you cut all the way through.

Do both ends of the exhaust need to be removed to do this or just the end cap? and do you cut straight thru?

Thank you, starting this project next week. Only looking to cut 2" and remove inards. Selling my arrow exhaust. Used both with Kyles stock bike map and did not feel a seat of the pant difference. Even tried the sato map from Kyle. Like the look of the stockers other than I thought they were just a bit to long.

Wish I could hear them. Do they keep the deep rumble or become more high-pitched and crackly? Is that a word?
