Exhaust Install - September 25, 2007, 03:18 PM

So my Akrapovic slip-on should arrive sometime tomorrow and I would like to get it on the bike before this weekend. Ive talked to a couple folks on the board who are willing to help out, but of course they have to make things difficult by having lives and other obligations that I have to work around

I guess my question is this...How easy is it to install an undertail slip-on and is it something I can do with directions and simple hand tools (allen wrenches, socket set, screw drivers, 12 pack of budweiser, and a rear stand). Also, are there any tricks of the trade I should know about or watch out for during the install? Is there anything I need to do after the install? Re-map/jet anything? I cant imagine I would considering its just a slip-on and I believe the akrapovic is designed to work with the bike's stock configuration anyways.

Bike: 06 600rr
Exhaust: Akrapovic CF slip-on

Thanks!

not sure how involved a slip-on would be but you shouldn't need to worry about re-mapping your ECU for a slip-on exhaust.

FYI...Karli put the exhausts on all 3 R6's

You'll be fine. It's easy, and should come with directions. Should take you 1 hr max!

Oh and remap - not REALLY necessary w/ a slipon, but if you wanna waste some more money you can get a PC and a custom tune..

+1. Do it yourself; it's very rewarding to wrench your own ish. Not a difficult mod to do. The most trouble you will have is getting it to line up straight with the undertail.

Thanks Chris! I also got this from Sharon the other day, "Um also babe I installed a full Yosh exhaust system myself on a AMA spec race bike, I can help you."

Im questioning the feasiblity of me installing a slip-on myself...not my manhood! HAHAHA!

Cool thanks for the input guys.

R - Considering Im not tracking my bike just yet I didnt see the need to spend another $700 or so on a full system for another 1.5 hp. Thats why im only wasting $500 on the slip on. Ill keep the PC and map in mind if I ever go with a full system.

Madali - Any work-arounds to get it to line up? Ive seen some other write-ups with pics and their sh*t is all off-center, but nothing about how to correct it.

When you connect everything leave it loose, and tighten gradually if it's not lined up right. You'll have the most play, and ability to correct it this way. I will try to get down and help. Will you take it to Sharons house?

My biggest concern is that some slipons require a cut to the pipe.

Yes, like Ben said keep it loose and gradually tighten on both sides. I believe the system you have involves a double sided hanger. In other words, if you tighten down one side first and then move to the other, it will cause an off-center finished product. Remember to not firmly tighten down the clamp joining the slip on to the stock pipe until after you have things centered out back.

Hope this helps. Post up pics when you're done.

Wish I had pics to share, but apparently FedEx lost the f*cking exhaust. It was supposed to be here yesterday, but it didnt show. I called and they had nothing to tell me. I called about every other hour today to find out where the hell it is, but still nothing. The last time they saw the package it left Charlotte, NC at 7:22am on the 25th. They put a "trace" on, but said they will look for up to a week before it is considered "lost in transit".
