Slip-on exhaust

Do they make a slip-on exhaust for the 2000 Sabre 1100? I've searched the forums and can't find anything. I don't see why I can't just remove my exhaust from the muffler clamps and slip on a new Cobra or Vance exhaust instead of buying a complete system.

What is it that you are trying to achieve? Throatier sound? Little bit more power? Have you looked into the hole saw mod?

Slip-on mufflers are by definition generic and universal. They becomes bike specific, when the mfg makes the hanger brackets fixed instead of adjustable.

The advantage of a FULL SYSTEM exhaust really has NOTHING to do with the muffler section. Mufflers are often the same as the slipon. When you get a system the special part is the headers. It's the header that gest you the power improvements

No one that I'm aware of still makes direct fit slip-ons for the Sabre. As has been pointed out, you can buy some generic slip-ons with adjustable brackets. Probably be a lot sheaper then buying model specific mufflers. Just be aware that you will not get any performance increase by changing mufflers.

Thanks for all the great advise. I thought about the hole-saw mod, but the poll taken on here shows people are only 50/50 about it. If I can do it to where I can put the baffles back in, I might give it a try.
I just want more rumble/noise rather than the 'usual' Honda sound. But I hate to pour $500 into a 12 year old bike, not to mention the cost of a rejet kit.

You just answered your own question. Guess its time to bust out the hole saw.
Once you remove the baffles you won't want to put them back. Its not that loud.

Hole saw mod a Sabre sounds like crap to me. Google Emgo mufflers and see if a pair of universal mufflers would be ok. Probably wouldn't cost more then $125 or so. I has a set of 4 Emgo's on my Magna that looked almost like the OEM's but had a slightly deeper sound then stock.
