These days, everything is negotiable if you want a sale.

The Arrow factory can is a good choice if you can find a used one, I realise your options might be a bit more limited in the US and state legislation might be an issue.

I'm looking for a smaller/lighter stock take off muffler from a GT street Tiger or similar model that will bolt on my 2014 TEX. Anyone know what will fit?

Yes, I could easily do the servicing myself, but no service history for 6 years, from 4500 - 22,000 miles was a little concerning. It had ABS & heated grips, there was also aftermarket brake/clutch levers & an after market belly pan.

I just wasn't prepared to pay what they wanted given the lack of history & they wouldn't budge on the price.

Its 24K for the next major service, not 20.
Valves are checked easily enough. I don't think mine was done by the dealer at 12K when sold, and I just did everything else myself, and haven't worried about valve check yet, at about 17K and a few years.
Given your level of ability, Valve check/re shim is straight forward, I would think, but I agree, the price is high.
You might want to get a later bike with more ride options, as 2012 only has ABS, if it is actually fitted.

Saw a 2012 Tiger 800 xc for sale not far from me, so took a detour on my way to a work event & popped in to the dealer who advertised it.

A nice, clean black one, no luggage but at 22k miles & £5000 with a 3 month warranty, it was worth looking at.

Well, the full service history turned out to be 4 services only , the last one being done at 22k, but no service for 6 years.

The major 20k service, including valves were not done & the dealer said they would not do it as they'd just spent £600 to prep it for sale.

I know it was a dealer, but I've seen similar age & mileage with full dealer service for a similar price, so think I'll give this one a miss.

i  made one from polyamide PA6. It is a very hard material, thus difficult to treat, but it lasts, no wear for 5k kmh
