I rang up a few places today because i wanted to get my resinator taken off and some people quoted over $100. I thought that was a bit high but was willing to pay it till i rang this one place and they said they will do it for $44. I paid cash and it only ended up costing me $40. Now car sounds better:)

What have other people payed? Why are some places charging over $100. What do they do thats different to the $40 guy.

You mean, just to take the actual muffler off? ... and replace it with what, straight pipe?

Yup the rear muffler. Pretty simple if you ask me, and some places were gonna charge me $120. It was a bit of a weight reduction aswell haha. The resinator had some weight about it. It was a pretty chunky one.

the VN has a catalytic converter, and a muffler downstream (at the tailpipe).

maybe i'm mistaken but you would need a muffler to meet noise regs. you can't remove the cat for emissions purposes (altho this is a bit pedantic, by now the cat is not doing much for emissions.)

I think the car is technically unroadworthy with only one resinator. You need two... I think.

Oh, and when I was changing my exhaust system, I got the exhaust shop down the road to hack off my over-axle bend and rear muffler for $10. The trick is not to let them invent the price. I drove up at 8am just after they opened, went "hey, would you blokes have a spare minute to hack my exhaust in half for ten bucks?" and they did it on the spot. :)
