I recently removed the exhaust system on my Sport Classic to have the header pipes ceramic coated. After re-installing them the left muffler is lower than the right...it's makin me crazy!
Does anyone know if it's possible to adjust the muffler height?

Twist the cans a bit at the junction to the headers, the bend in the can creates some funky angles. Loosen the black triangles a bit to accommodate the movement then tighten it all up.

Be careful when you do the left triangle if not on a center stand, the side stand affixes to the same bolt and will come loose.

Would live to see some pics of the ceramic coat job. Are you pleased with the result overall?

Here is the picture I took of mine the day I put them back on after being ceramic coated.




Agreed with the others. You will have to loosen the pipe connections at the mufflers and twist them a little to get the height of the two cans even at the rear. I did it to mine with the pipes loose all the way to the heads and started to tighten things back up once I had the alignment the way I wanted it.
