Hey all
Just new to the forum, I don't really like having my first post as a question but i kinda need the info so here goes:

Ive just purchased a leo vince slip on for my 05 600rr.

Ive removed all relevant fairings/bolts but im having trouble 'disconnecting' the actual exhaust tube, its no longer bolted to the barrel clamp, it just doesnt seem to pull off easily is all.

Just wondering if there's a trick to it?

thanks.

when i changed mine....

i also have an 05.... when i changed my exhaust i found that you need to unbolt the header pipe towards where the two pipes meet going out the back. have someone help you pull the headers down where the bolt came out and you need to yank on the upper pipe untill you can get them apart. it's a bit of a bitch but just have patients and you will get......
lots of prying is the trick

I did mine yesterday. Just took a screwdriver and lifted the tabs a bit on the stock midpipe. Then shake the $hit out of it! Be careful not to damage the stock gasket on the collector. Or shear the bolt on the stock exhaust clamp, thats what i did, now I'm using a 2" hose clamp till monday!

I used the ancient chinese secret of the flat head screw driver and hammer. A few taps in the upward direction around the connection and she'll loosen up like a $10 hooker. Slip her off, take the original gasket off, which also might need a few good taps with the driver and hammer, slip your new gasket on, the exhaust, all the hardware and fairings, and fire it up...you'll be out riding in a half hour if all goes well.

You will still need your stock gasket but be carefull it can become damaged very easily. if you damage it go get a new one from your local stealership. it is important to have a good gasket or you will be a leaking sob.
