Will a stock oem exhaust off a 2010 900 Custom fit a 2012 900 Classic LT

Good morning,
I recently purchased a used 2012 Vulcan classic 900 LT with Vance & Hines twin slash staggered Chrome exhaust #18397 with stock & quite #21899 baffles.
My question is I am looking to take them off and sell them (Guess I am getting old ) and put a stock OEM set back on.
Does anyone know if a 2010 900 custom OEM set will fit my 2012 Vulcan classic 900 LT.
Thank you in advance for any info/help,
John

LOL - Guess original owner figured with all the studs it would get notice out in the sun light, like a strobe light. That is one of the reasons why I purchased this bike !!!

I always thought the exhaust was the same on all the 900s.

My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.

First off, studs and chrome look great

Second, yep! As of right now, ANY 900, regardless of model or year, is interchangeable in terms of exhaust. Any aftermarket or stock exhaust will work provided it doesn't get in the way of bags, etc.

I THINK I remember hearing of one exhaust that comes really close to the LT floorboards? But in the case of the OEM exhaust absolutely, it's exactly the same.

Just called a 1-877-473-4595 Partzilla. and was told the part number I need for complete oem exhaust system is 18087-0281 FR & 18087-0282 RR.
The 2010 oem system part #18087-0143 & 18087-0144 will not fit due to a connecting hose ?????? when asked about connecting hose !!! He could not explain said it was different.
Does anybody know what he is talking about.
Thanks again,
John
PS: I like the Studs & Chrome - Thank for the compliment.

Whistler,

It will fit. The Partzilla guy just fills orders from a computer screen and I would be very surprised if he rode a Viulcan. There is no "connecting hose" on the exhausts. Its 2 gaskets, four cap nuts, three bolts, and one additional nut. The pipes are the same.

A "connecting hose" may have something to do with emissions (blah blah California blah blah...). Sounds like the kind of thing I'd tend to disregard. Sometimes I regret it, though.

Something else to consider is that the bracket that holds the exhaust to the bike might be different between the V&H and stock. When I changed my exhaust to Cobras, part of the installation was changing out that bracket.
