    You can use a Husqvarna 288 deflector, some fasten them on with screws or rivets, but I find neither hold so I weld them on now. Some weld or braze on a pipe or two.

    This is the last one I did, not pretty, but it works. I may end up adding another port, I don't think it flows quite enough.

    I've seen those they look nice, and well priced.

    This is how I’ve been doing the huskies. Deeper less pingy sound and less noticeable by forestry pencil pushers.

    Here’s how I was doing them but they take to much time.

    If you need to ask I would imagine your looking for an easy mod. The easiest by far is to remove the muffler with the support bracket still attached. Drill 2 holes evenly spaced so it don’t look like **** then pinch a screen in between the support and muffler. Make sure you get all the metal out before reinstalling. Second easiest will be to attach a pre made deflector.
