Looks like you could rotate the muffler any direction you want on this. It was upright when I bought it, I rotated it 90° forward like it originally came. I'd like to get the OE tip to dress it back up a bit.
I'll remember to give it plenty of glow time. It's mostly going to be a summer machine, very doubtful I'll try to use it for anything in the winter.
You need one of these i installed mine today this thing makes starting this beast a breeze.
