Am trying to fit a new yoshi RS 5 slpi-on before work tomorrow (I am in the UK so it is 9.15). Stupid I know!!

I have gotten all the way up to installing the new zaust when I have realised that ther is a big peice of metal (like a spacer or something) over the existing part of the zaust. Now before I take my mallet and screwdriver to it, is this something that I can safely remove? In addition is there a quick way of doing this?

Help appreciatted especially if it is very quick!

Fixed it. I accidently drove my screwdriver threw it. It turned out to be a peice of rubber type material with metal (copper i think) woven into it. Looks like some form of seal.

Just hope i dont need to put the old zaust back on cause this piece pete tong.

for reference it was between the connection between the old exahust and the main pipe from the engine. It looked like it went between the exhaust and pipe to form a seal - but what do I know, I am just a rookie.

Question - does everyone put that heat shield stuff right the way to the very tip of the tail of the bike. If I do that then I think I will be able to see the heat sheild material from the back of the bike and that will just look stupid.

I don't know what you are talking about with respect to the copper-woven piece, but feel free to remove the heat shield completely. I've been running a Yoshi CF for two years with no heat shield.

Is this what you are talking about?



It's the gasket if I am not mistaken and I had to remove mine in order to install my Akrapovic. I assume that your exhaust would require the same.
Thats the fella. Well the gasket is completely shot as I managed to kill it with the screw driver!

All finished now though. Couldn't believe how simple a job that was. Had everything against me as it was -3 outside but the zaust if beautiful. Cant wait to try it out properly tomorrow (neighbours wouldnt be impressed if I gave it a proper rev now (its 12.15am!!).

Anyhow thanks for your help guys.
