Mufflers For My Bonnie

Was thinking about saving up for a pair of mufflers for my '06 bonneville t100 , these ones to be exact: http://www.newbonneville.com/html/sprint_mufflers.html 

what I would like to know is , what are the technical implications of fitting these ? \Firstly are they easy to fit or are you best sticking it in a garage and letting them do it for you ? and also would any other parts of the bike have to tuned for them ? such as the carbs rebalancing for the amount of air/fuel needed ? and lastly just a curiosity , are restrictors able to be put in once aftermarket parts are installed on the exhaust system ?
Thanks,
BCB

Mufflers

Sounds American apart from muff diving:shock:,

Don`t know really but make sure that there`s no (not for road use) stamped on them,also if you have a centre stand will this work with them,if you remove the baffles don`t come and live near me.

If you do you may have to rejet so keep a watch on that spark plug.

Also try a Trumpet forum.

I don't want it rediciulously loud , I just want more grunt , and mufflers are the only way I can think of doing it , I don't want it any louder than 85db drive by. Covert ninja style :ph43r:

Hi BCB

If its just a bit more grunt you want try dropping a tooth on the engine drive sprocket,you will lose some top end speed an you may find the engine revving a bit higher when cruising and you could also lose a bit of MPG.But if you don't use the top end speed that much,and you would be more comfortable with a wee bit more bottom end acceleration then this could be a cheap and easier way to go?.Good Luck
