If it's a slip on, it takes like 30 minutes tops provided you know what you're doing!

i did mine today, without instructions. It was on my 03, with a yosh slip on. The hardest part i had was getting the old exhaust off, where it meets the header. I had to pry it apart with a long bar. Other then that ... it's pretty simple.

Take off the tail .. take off the right rear set and pass peg. Then take off the few things in the way on the right side (i.e. fairings or heatshield). Unbolt the two bolts above the muffler ... and there are two bolts, one on either side, the hold up the header around the oil pan which may need to come off. Slip on the new one, tighten it up, and bam.

Took me maybe a little bit over an hour. This was my first time, with no instructions.

All you'll really need is a size 12 socket wrench with extension for most all the bolts, then some allen wrenches, and big ones for the rear sets and pass pegs.

full system 2 hours tops from unbolting fairngs etc... to re-installing everything. be careful not to strip the studs on the engine.

hi,

first timer... about an hour with the right tools. the scariest part is removing the rear tail. the heat shields on the 05-06 are kinda a pain in the ass too.

you can call us if you have any questions. you can come by our shop if you are local and we can show you what to do in person... no charge.

do a search on this forum to get some tips.

good luck... nick - mri

Did your's come with these little spacers? I used mine to elevate the tail about an inch over the pipe. The Arata don't get that hot but your's is pretty close.
