Question Spirit/Sabre OEM exhaust ?

I'm looking for an OEM factory exhaust for my 04 Spirit VT1100c. I found a exhaust for the 05 Sabre. From the pictures, it looks identical. Are they the same or are they different?

Thanks in advance.

They are slightly different. The problem is the bend around the right side cover.

The guy I bought my 1100 Spirit off of must have been a comedian...

Never having owned a Shadow Spirit before, I never picked up that he had swapped the Spirit pipe (and the attached Cobra mufflers) for his Sabre pipe...(when I picked up the Spirit he proudly pointed to the Sabre and said-"that's my new baby there" or something like that...).

Let me see....hmmmm...

THIS is a Sabre rear exhaust mounted on a Spirit:




THIS is a proper rear set up on a Spirit:



Subtle-but if you are like me...unacceptable and had to be changed...

They are deff not the same. It could work as i have pipes made for a sabre on my spirit but the side cover is off a bit as you can see in mongrels pics.
