Step 1: Lets rip it off!!
First thing we need to do is remove the stock heat shield with an allen key.
Next we unbolt the stock exhaust clamp which is located between the exhaust pipe and headers.
After that, unbolt the exhaust from the exhaust hanger mount.
Go ahead and yank the whole can out!!
Step 2: Replacing mounting hardware
First, we remove the passenger foot rest which is also an exhaust hanger.
Then we remove the 2 mounting bracket bolts from the exhaust hanger.
Lets put together the new mounting bracket along with its new hardware.
Re install passenger foot rest.
Step 3: Installing Heat shield and bracket
Step 4: Putting everything back together.
Tighten the clamp to secure the connection.
After securing the connection, remove the muffler springs so that you can twist and adjust the exhaust so that it will line up with the mounting bracket. (Yoshimura provides this tool and is included)
Once you have everything lined up, tighten the mounting bracket bolt and re hook the springs.
Step 5: Almost there!!
After that turn her on and hear her roar. A weird smell from the exhaust is normal for the first 10 miles.
Ride Fast and take chances!!
