Can I modify my stock exhaust, on my 2020 Scout Bobber Sixty (ABS), to make it louder or do I have to buy and install an aftermarket exhaust?

If I can modify it does anyone have any tips, videos, etc...?

Or TAB longs and you get to choose the baffle diameter. Either 2.5 inch or 1.75 inch. I ordered mine with the 1.75 diameter and they're loud enough for me. You can get them in black for your Bobber.

Is that what you did...?!
I am planning to do, I love the look of stock mufflers than any other aftermarket, the only close ones I like in terms of looks is Vans & Hines 3 inch slash cuts (too loud for my taste), Bassani 3 inch (best tone)/ Reinhart (bit harsher than Bassani)- but I would always go with stock then aftermarket. But drilling 2.5 inches / 3-inch holes in existing baffles results in an almost similar tone as Bassani/ Reinhart

You should send me a video once you do so I can hear it!!

I would get at least slip on. But I did modify my wife’s Bobber exhaust. We sent her full exhaust out to get Creamic coated so mean while we chopped her stock exhaust down to look smaller in length and also took out the baffles. She now has her full exhaust back on but the chopped stock with baffles removed wasn’t to loud at all.

There's also the Indian 2 into 1 exhaust. It is a little pricy, but it's Indian. The owner at Elkhart Indian Motorcycle was actually the one who pushed for it. You also don't need to tune the bike to run it, but you will need the performance air, and the dealership flashes it for you. I'm hopefully going to take the baffle off of mine this week, and I'll post another video.

So I just installed the Vance and Hines 3” slip ons on my 2020 scout bobber 60. It wasn’t until they were delivered and installed that Revzilla finally replied to my email where I asked them to confirm if they fit on my bike. Revzilla says they contacted Vance and Hines and they said these mufflers WILL NOT fit on my bike, and haven’t been tested on this model yet.

But i got them on. I didn’t use the clamps that come in the box, I used the stock clamps and torqued them to 45ft lbs. These clamps were tough to get on but I was persistent, lol. These should be fine on my bike right? I’m not getting backfiring or popping, not sure what else to test or look out for. Hopefully I didn’t just void the warranty on my bike

Are your exhaust still sounding and holding good?

I’ve never this much of a hard time trying to find something I want for Scarlet (a.k.a. my 2020 Indian Scout Bobber Sixty). It seems like it impossible to find nice black slip on exhausts. 😒
