Call Paul at ATV Racing - Phoenix, I think he's got some stock silencers left over from some long travel/500kit installs. Or you can try Marv at 4x4Tuff, he's got the same pipes and silencers ATV Racing sells, both companies purchase them from the manufacturer, Power Pros. http://www.4x4tuff.com/main
