I have a 96 vulcan and want to know if it is hard to remove and bypass the premuffler chamber?

Hard? Depends on your skill level. However, plan to change the carb jets at the same time, or it will run like madura.

It will probably sound like madura too, BTW. If you must have loud pipes, do yourself a favor and get a replacement exhaust system.

"do yourself a favor and get a replacement exhaust system."

How about if he does us both a favor and leaves the stock system alone?

Well, that was sort of implied...but he won't leave it alone, so he might as well get the info.

Nah, hacking-up the stock exhaust in a cruelly-failed experimental bid for attention just to make the bike run like Ass is probably right up his alley.

I think it's funny when guys modify their exhaust to make their bike sound louder and all it does it make them sound like they had some bad Mexican the night before. Brrrraaaatttt!!

I had steak the night before. It was some excellent home grown black angus.
