WTB: V&H Big Shots 1 slashed exhaust tip

Howdy,

I managed to lose 1 of the exhaust tips on my Vance & Hines Big Shots. Makes me mad. I noticed it was getting loose so I tightened it. About hundred miles later, it's gone. Should have put Lock-Tite on it.

So this is a long-shot, I am looking for 1 slashed-cut tip.

They are sold in pairs and they are pretty expensive (thought they just might ask for my first-born instead).
So I am hoping that someone here was in the same situation, bought a pair and has 1 leftover.

Or if anyone has any good advice on finding a tip cheaper, I'm all ears.

Thanks in advance
Lou

Funny thing. I don't know how but I managed to notice a slash-cut exhaust tip sitting on the shoulder by the grass on my ride home yesterday, on the highway, at 70mph, while dodging dumbasses on the road. How I noticed it, I don't know, I guess my SA is just that good.

Anyway, that thing is beat to hell (had to chase some threads cuz they were impact-damaged) and not pretty anymore. So while I have a functional tip, I am still looking for a replacement.

Yeah, talk about luck! (and visual acuity)
Since I was in traffic, I did not want to grab the brakes hard and pull over and get killed trying to walk back to it. So I planned on going back later, after traffic dies down, right before sunset, like 8pm.
Wife asked where exactly I saw the tip lying. I could not remember, I was focused on not dying in traffic at the time. So I thought I'd have to ride the approximate 1-mile stretch of the hwy to find it again. She said (smart cookie): "don't you have it on video?" Huh. Of course I do! She's a keeper!
I pulled the dashcam footage and even the camera spotted it. So I went back for it before 8pm and it was sitting right where the camera said it would be.
Again, beat up and not pretty (and the inner sleeve broken off and lost forever) but at least it will do for now.

It ain't pretty. It's like an old Chevy. "Looks far from good but good from far".
