So i have an 83 XS and i am slowly working on it. I took my pipes off in an effort to clean up the rust and saw that the bottoms of the mufflers are a bit rusted through

After a bit of research i think i have come to the conclution the only way to romove the mufflers is to cut them off. Is this a correct statement?

From all i have read there is inner and outer pipes and the new muffler has to attach to the inner pipe. Does anyone have a video on how this is done or a good picture to show of where to start the cuts?

yeah there is an inner and outer pipe on stock xs exhuast. i do believe you will have to cut them off. if you are wanting to keep the stock headers pipes you can get some new slip on mufflers they dont have to connect to the inner pipe it would just slide onto the outside on clamp on. the XS has a ton of prefabbed aftermarket exhaust and builder kits.
