Hi!
I'm looking to replace the mufflers on my XJ, and I'm planning to keep it minimalistic.
Anybody know what exhaust/mufflers is used on this beauty?

I don't know but that's a sweet looking bike...gives me some inspiration for my own. You could always ask on their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Garage9/

A lot of guys put Sportster mufflers on older Hondas, looks sort of like that - http://www.ebay.com/itm/1986-2003-Harle ... 2000827978

It is sweet looking indeed. My inspiration for my build.
Thanks for the tip! I commented on their video of the bike, asking what muffler was used. Hope I get a reply. They use a 4-1 exhaust system, but it will work just as well on 4-2.

I have considered the Sportster muffler. Not too costly. I think I will stay away from the big racing mufflers.

Definitely one of the better ones out there... the tank patina?

Just came across this one on eBay - shape looks very similar to the one on that bike: http://www.ebay.com/itm/EXHAUST-YAMAHA- ... 19&vxp=mtr

It'll be a cold day in hell before I buy a muffler that costs more than my bike though :)

Wow! That has a really nice sound! (Check link)

I see on eBay you can get a slip-on for around 350$

Update: I got a response from Garage9. The exhaust is Laser from Yamaha R1.
But I gotta say, I really like the GPR-exhaust.

From the photo of the Cafe bike above, it looks like he has a 4:1 header (or a custom adapter tube) with an Emgo Taper-chrome muffler.

You can get a 4:1 headers on eBay:

Then, a short adapter pipe to get from the larger header diameter to the smaller Emgo-muffler diameter. Followed by a set of taper-chrome Emgo mufflers:

That link for the 4 to 1 is from a 1983 xj600?

Would FZR 4 to 1 Headers work? like this one..

FZR 4 to 1

I won this auction on ebay and was going to try to get another and have dual with the stock exhaust? That works right?

The FZR headers won't work. The angle of the enigne and the cylinder spacing is different. The link above was funky; the 4:1 I meant to reference is from Delkevic. They have a shop here in Englewood (though this auction is for the UK) so you should be able to find the same thing US-side from their website.
