I am in the process of changing the rear tire on my 2007 AN 400. When I pulled the muffler I could not believe how heavy it is. Anyone know why? Is it necessary? Is there something that would look good and not weight a ton? Thank you

Well...........!!!!! The answer to your question is very simple.....!!!!! Many Burgman owners are also fishermen and use the muffler as a BOAT ANCHOR"......... :lol: :lol:

One reason why i got Rid of Mines was the Bike was Heavy on One Side!, and it causes Flats on the rear Tire!! i kept getting Punctures ,Nails Etc,Etc but when i remove the exhaust it stopped!!
frankly the Stock exhaust is just to Heavy.

Replacements are : -K7-2011-

It's a catalytic converter also. Yes it's heavy. But it's a small % of the bike weight. If someone removed it and gutted it, you wouldn't notice a difference.
Certainly not worth the many $100 to buy an aftermarket one. The gas savings wouldn't pay for the new can in your lifetime.

I would not be surprised if you could feel the difference with a lighter one as it's
unsprung weight being bolted to the engine swinging arm unit which is bad
for handling.
