Good morning I'm new here. I have a 2000 vt1100c2 that needs mufflers. I have the opportunity to buy a full exhaust off of a 1997 vt1100. I'm wondering what years are the parts interchangeable. Im guessing 1997-2007 as the clymers guide suggests but Am I wrong? Thank you in advance.

In 97 there was a VT1100C, which was a Magna.... and VT1100C2-2 which was a Shadow A.C.E

To clarify...

The Sabre (VT1100C2A) was not manufactured until the 2000 model. The 1997 VT1100 Shadow models included the Ace (VT1100C2A) and the Spirit (VT1100CA). So basically, the Sabre replaced the Ace and I don't think the mufflers are interchangeable. But, some of the muffler parts are interchangeable between a 1997 VT1100 Spirit and a 2000 VT1100 Sabre.

You can cross reference part numbers here...

So, if the seller has '97 Ace mufflers, you're out of luck. But, if the seller has '97 Spirit mufflers, you might be in luck.

So...

Good luck!

Thanks for this interesting find. This new info seriously puts partzilla.com's reputation for accurate information at risk. According to their site, the Spirit wasn't built in 1997.

Thanks for the update!

UPDATE: After doing even more digging, it seems the link you gave is the final answer to good information on the model years. Partzilla.com has the info for the 1997 Spirit 1100 completely screwed up. They claim it's actually a Magna 1100, and being a Magna owner myself, I know damn well they weren't building a Magna 1100 in 1997.

From now on, I'm using the supplied link you gave.

Again, thanks for this!

I have a 2000 Sabre too and you will love it. Can’t help with the exhaust question, mine had cobra drag pipes on it when I bought her.
