Yoshi RS 5 install

OK, so I just bought a new Yoshi RS 5 Carbon with Carbon tip and I should be recieving it some time this week. I was just wondering how much time I should expect to spend on the install. I figure I will have to take the tail off but how easy/hard is the install.

I have an rs5 and it took me about an hour and a half to install. It was the second motorcycle exhaust I have installed but the first undertail exhaust I have installed. Just take your time and read the instructions and you'll be just fine.

Installing the exhaust is easy. 90 minutes should be enough time, but allow more time than that just in case (it's not something you want to get into a rush with).

If you haven't taken the tail section off before, that will be your biggest problem. Not because it is difficult, but because you have to bend and flex it so much to remove it. I was sure mine would break the first time I removed it.

The Yosh kit also includes some adhesive-backed foil to stick under the tail. I had some HVAC foil tape and used it to cover the spots left open.

Thanks guys, I have had all of the plastics off of my bike so that part I am not worried about and I am pretty sure I should have no problem with any of the install, just looking for some time figures.
Thanks again...

I don't mean to jack this thread, but when I installed my yosh slip-on, it looks a little crooked,,, is there a piece that can be moved on the slip on?.. The canister needs to be moved, and I can't remember if it was all one piece or not?

Long time post lurker,,, I see what you have been sayin!

I have been doing tons of seaching on yoshi's here to prepare myself for the install and this has been a common issue people have talked about. Most have resolved the issure by loosening the lower fastener and adjusting the Midpipe.

Things to remember when installing the RS-5;

You do not need the round gasket for the midpipe (For slip-on).
You will want to mod the can mounting bracket or the can will hand too low and look fugly.
The can and the connecting pipe are not one pice, mount the can first and line it up. Then tighten down the rest of the connections.
You will need to take the right rear set off, it mounts with a hex head bolt, I don't remember what the head size is.

dont know about you but i needed mine i have an 06 if that makes a difference. my old gasket got messed up so installed without it massive leak. had to back order part. it also states in the instructions to use the old gasket with new slip on and i just installed mine 4 days ago.

I left mine in the stock position because it is stainless and was afraid of it getting to hot if i move it up. Also on the 06's you will need the gasket. Take it slow and you will be able to reuse the gasket in most cases.

It might be differnet for the 2 model years?
On my 03, the stock 2-into-1 pipe went inside the RS-5 connetor pipe. Judging by Ron Ayers site it looks like the 05-06 stock 2-into-1 pipe would go over the connector pipe.
