    Exhaust fitting guide?

    I've just won a used Leo Vince exhaust on ebay. I'd like to have a go at fitting it myself, but haven't been able to find a guide on doing an exhaust swap.

    Does anyone know if one exists?

    because it is easy to do   :015:
    but I will do a search in my garage to see if I still have the Leovince manual.

    IIRC you need to carefully remove the big OE gasket from the honda side (if you are lucky it may come off with the OE can) WD40 or similar is you're friend here.

    Keep it safe with the standard can as you need it to re-fit. Apart from that its really easy. Don't tighten up anything till you are happy with how the new exhaust fits/sits. I bought a LV can and it came with a spring puller but for years had sufficed with either pliers or an un-wound coat hanger! (Centrestands etc.)

    Then enjoy playing some new tunes on the throttle. :305:

    Not much instruction in here, but as said its not that difficult.

    Remove the bolt on the underside of the bike and the one on the right side next to the wheel. Then turn the exhaust away from the bike, wiggel it back and forth.

    Place the bike on the side stand so you can see how the pipe has to go between the centerstand (if you have one...), and start mouting the Leo, make sure its aligned right so the centerstand rubber will rest on the underside of the special bracket.
