They came off of an 883 I believe.  I'd have to ask the guy I got them from about the year.  The guy I bought some armor from in Bloomington, IN had them.  Told him I'd give him $40 for them.  He texted after I got home and said that he would bring them to me for $50.  When he got here, they were the ones that had the crossover tube coming out the side of them.  I didn't have the heart to tell him I didn't want them, so I rtv'd some beer can aluminum into those tubes to seal them off and called it good.  I think you want probably older 883 or dynaglyde mufflers.  All I had to do was pull the bushing from the H box, slide them in and tighten the clamps.  There is a guy on the CX forum that does carbs and other things for the CX.  He has tubes made up to replace the H box if that is desired.  He also does a non CV carb setup that adds some grunt.  Love to have them, but they are like $550 or something like that.
If I had a CX, I'd go for one of the CX reproduction ones.  I would have went that way but it sounded like 500 cans might not work out on the 650.  You might also look at Triumph Thruxton mufflers.  At some point those went to stainless steel.

I finally got some mufflers.
I can actually start it now without waking the dead!

I have a CX500 on my project list and would like to know what mufflers you picked and if there were any issues installing them.

Makes me wonder what kind of fuel economy the 14 is capable of if given new settings strictly for milage. Even if just 50mpg you'll get close to 300 miles from a tank. C14 adventure bike?

I Pick up the bike tomorrow! ....and for some reason every time I close my eyes I see a map of north America.

Last 3 tanks with Ivan’s flash I averaged 48 mpg.

did I mention my '08 is bone stock... no flash whatsoever?
