   Anyone else have a 04 1200c ?  I have found that the exhaust suds in the rear head are two different lenghts. Is this stock ?
   Trying to put new exhaust on the wife's and am having one hell of a time getting the rear pipe to seat enough to have enough threads sticking through the exhaust flanges on one side. {=

We have several Sportster owners on the forum. Maybe they have some experience. I wonder if the stud is damaged?

I have a 2016 1200c and the exhaust studs extend about 3/8' to 1/2" past the nut.  The ends look like they are beveled slightly giving a semi-finished look.

Ronnie's HD has parts microfiche and the stud part # is 16715-83.  The 83 says the same part has been used since 1983.  His price is $3.49, probably higher at a dealer, but if you can get yours out it is a cheap repair.

See Ronnie’s HD Parts -Sportster Exhaust Studs

Good luck, and let us know how you resolved this.

From the link that @AbueloBill shared it would seem that with item #13 being the only listed part for all 4 of the Exhaust Studs, that with you having a shorter one it must be a damaged stud or a nonstandard replacement that someone installed.

What did you end up doing @Knucklebuster64 ?
