inexpensive 2 into 1

After reading of the advantages of 2 into 1:
I cut the Y-pipe stub off, for the left exhaust, behind the rear head. (remove the rear pipes)
I made a patch for the hole in the y-pipe from the cutoff stub and welded it in.
Discarded the left muffler, left exhaust pipe and shields, and the mounting bracket from behind the rear cylinder. This opened up behind the motor, and lightened the bike.
Went for a 10,000 mile ride, bike never missed a stroke.

2005 Road Glide, had screaming eagle air cleaner and aftermarket quiet mufflers

Yep you're the first to do that. It's more about flow and scavenging.

Before and after dyno runs are needed to know what if any changes to the torque curve were created by this change.

A lot of non-engineered exhaust changes reduce power and risk burning exhaust valves, but is typically the guys straight through short exhausts that some guys put on their bikes.

I personally like symmetry so I will be sticking with the duals.

I did this on my old bike, which was a carbed 02 FLHT standard. I never had an issues related to the exhaust mod on that bike.
