I need a muffler for 7000

Today my machine got louder and my right foot got warmer despite cold. I blew out my muffler probably do to high miles. So now I need a muffler. A new stock muffler is kind of expensive and I think kind of noisy. Despite the noise I will buy someones used tear off if the price is right. Does anyone out there have a used tear off. I could also be interested in a new aftermarket muffler if it is quieter than stock. Does anyone have a recommendation?

You're not having any luck with your machine. Did you take the heat shields off to assess the damage yet. If you can't find a used one I would seriously try a repair, but that depends on if there is internal damage. These 4 stroke mufflers are ridiculous in price.

Thanks everyone for great feedback. Turns out my solution is at my dealer (Lighthouse Motor Sports). They have a used muffler off a 7000 with low miles. Attached is a photo of my failed muffler after ride. My ears are still ringing! I will tear off heat shield and pass on photo and failure report.

This morning I pealed back the cracked heat shield to reveal the big hole in the muffler. The hole was the size of a dinner napkin folded in the shape of a triangle. The location (outward side lower half) showed evidence of being a higher heat spot on the muffler. The crack propagated along a line that would have stress from each heat cycle. It was a fatigue failure. I have attached a photo of the hole and a photo of a good used muffler as a point of reference.
