Default Re: muffler wont fit

They can be be bent cold too and if your muffler is chromed that's probably the best way so as not to damage the plating. I've used wood in the vise jaws to protect the chrome, clamp the flange in the vise and use the muffler as a lever to get a slight bend to clear whatever obstruction you have that's keeping the pipe from mating with the cylinder correctly. Hope Finfan's and my suggestions help. Good luck, ride careful.
