2015 + F6B exhaust on Gold Wing

I have a red/black 2015 anniversary edition Gold Wing with the blacked out exhaust. I really liked the 2015+ F6B exhausts for both the slightly longer and better looking tips and the throatier exhaust note. I purchased a set of mufflers and tips (black) from a 2016 F6B and installed them on my bike this weekend.

Not only do I like the look much better, I love the sound! Just a little deeper, sounds like a motorcycle and not a sewing machine.

They really flow with the lines of the bags much better. I don't know why they put the shorter, vacuum cleaner tips on the full Wings.

Now if I could just get mine to line-up symetrically.

I've been watching for a clean pair of black F6B mufflers to put on my '16 black and gray. The B does have a better sound to it.

I didn't think there was that much adjustment on them!. I had a little issue getting the gap to close on where it meets the front header pipe/cover but I confess I didn't scruitinize the rear that closely. Not sure I want to look.

There isn't. There have been a few threads on this, and some say to loosen additional clamps (not just the muffler) and there should be some play in it... but I'm convinced that the bracket attached to my right side pipe is either borked or was never welded on right to begin with. So far, I'm just livin' with it.

Well of course I had to look after seeing your reply. Mine seem pretty good. It's difficult to get the camera aligned perfectly to get the correct perspective. Cover is still on the bike but you get the general idea.

Had to include one of my favorite pictures of the bike that has no relevance at all to this thread but its mine so what the heck. This was me pulling it out of the crate. It was a cool experience to get to do that.
