For all you guys that have removed the Stock exhaust, how extensive is it to do. Looks pretty cut and dry to me, but I would just like to be sure.

fairly simple, before you start unbolting it remove the heat shield thats about in the middle of the pipes that way you can unscrew the 02 sensor and then pull the cables off the exup system(dont unplug) after that just unbolt it from the head then drop the mounts and your done ;D

just a word of warning they are suprisingly heavy so be careful when you get ready to drop them so you don't scratch anything.

Sounds like there will be some left over cables hanging around. What did you do to clean up the left over cables? Zip tie them to the frame?

Crush gaskets are single use, you should always replace them to assure a good seal.

Yamaha part number is 3EG-14613-00-00. I know AO used some from AutoZone which fit just as well and were a lot cheaper, and more readily available.

i went the autozone way too. I reused the stockers and they didn't seem to leak but I picked up new ones anyway they were only like $2 so it was well worth it

oh and the exup cables come off the exhaust and then you can take them off the silniod, they are just like bycicle brake cables

I was just looking at my pipes. you know getting prepared for the big switch. Is that an allen screw holding the rear pipe on or some specialty wrench? I see the front one is regular bolts.

At the end of the exhaust their are two allen head screws, that are securing the pipes to the lower support bracket, but these do not need to be removed to take the pipes off. Just remove the two bolts that go into the frame, leaving the bracket attached to the pipes. Taking the 2 allens off is just a lesson in frustration and unnecessary.

they are just a standard allen wrench, nothing special at all there.
