Why are they called "slip-ons"?

does anybody know why they're called "slip-ons"? is that just a way to tell that it's not a full system, or is there some actual meaning behind it?

tenjin FTW!

To be a little more precise, the midpipe bolts on, and the actual muffler just slips on to the midpipe. It's held on by a spring in most cases.

its like a condom, slips right on to the pipe. and can slip right off at any time you feel like slipping it off.
hence..."slip on". wouldnt sound right calling it "slip off".

Wait, so you mean to tell me that there's no welding involved in a slip-on install? that's crazy. is the "sliping on" and/or bolting just as effective as welding? is there a write up on this (with photos)? i would be very interested in seeing the photos of this

Yoshimura doesn't bolt to the mid pipe. It's held by springs.

It's always a tight fit ("insert" joke here), then usually a clamp to might it even more tight. That's all it takes

Liars!!! They're all liars!!!

You all are mean. I will set you straight Chipotle. The real reason they are called that is because once you put them on your bike you will never be able to "slip up on" a cop again.
Gosh, all that crap about welding and springing and such. Poor guy was probably out there in the garage trying to slip his stock pipe off without cutting it first...like its that easy.



***IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER***: It is that easy, dont go cutting any part of your exhaust system. Just making a joke dude. Just unbolt the stocker and tug and twist.

Pardon my ignorance, but I never actually did any exhaust work on a bike, just cars, and I know I would never use bolts or springs. weld only, so for Honda (or anybody) to make something like that, so effective and so simple for a bike, it's just pretty amazing (especially when you factor in the vibrations) and I kinda got stuck just marveling at the genius behind it's simplicity.
