I`m sure it will work fine. It`s expensive but not as expensive as OE at £495!
For not much more you can get the Y connector and two silencers https://www.ebay.ie/itm/DOMINATOR-Exhau ... Sw6VRaFSdY

I know the 91-95 models were all the same and the 96-7 model had a slightly different downpipe but that`s all, so I`m sure that twin pipe version will fit them all.
Anyway, wouldn`t you go for a s/steel downpipe to match?

Thanks for that Bob.
I sent the seller a message and got a reply within minutes that they will fit the later Dr.
Stainless steel downpipe ! There's an idea.

I have one on all my Bigs along with a s/steel silencer. Wouldn`t be without them.
I remember weighing the original system on my 43 and it came to 19 kgs! Now about 8kgs for the whole system.
Contact Lars here http://bollertante.de/site/index.php/de/ as he makes stainless downpipes. He speaks perfect English and we can vouch that he drinks lots of beer!
Also one here https://www.ebay.de/itm/Holeshot-Auspuf ... xydlFS85PK

I did buy one of those many years ago. However it seemed very flimsy and far too loud.
In addition, the hanger metal was way too thin and the silencer wobbled about, so I moved it on to someone else.
Wouldn`t get my recommendation though maybe the quality has improved since then.
I prefer Devil or Marving silencers on mine but I`m pretty sure they are not available any more.
After all, these old bikes are best part of 30 years old so choices are few.
Maybe someone else has a better suggestion than me
