Before Installation: •Verify that all parts and accessories have been included (see list below). •Coat all exhaust pipe mating joints with anti-seize compound / lubricant (Finish Line Ti-Prep packet included). •Read and review these instructions, cautions, diagrams and images prior to starting any work.
1. Remove the lower fairing. 2. Remove the existing exhaust system from the mid pipes rearward. Save the exhaust clamps for reuse Save the stock exhaust can mounting boltsand nut for the end can to the passenger footpegsfor reuse as well. 3. Inspect the original exhaust gaskets. Replace as necessary. 4. Slide the tail pipes into place. Do not tighten the clamps at this point. 5. Slide the TiForce end cansinto place. 6. Loosely attach the two rubber bands, stainless steel bands K, and stay / hanger G to eachend can using the supplied 6mm hardware H. See figure 1 for details. 7. Using the stock provided mounting point on the passenger footpeg, and using the stock mounting bolt, mount the end can loosely, allowing for some adjustment. Insert the stock mounting bolt through the stay / hanger G (see figure 1) . 8. Attach the supplied springs to all the joints (from the tail pipes to the TiForce end cans) . 9. Make sure the exhaust system is free and clear, if necessary jiggle the system to adjust for proper clearance. 10. Carefully align the two stainless bands K so that they are parallel to each other, and spaced properly on the can, then tighten the 6mm hardware H and the stock mounting bolt hardware. Make sure that the rubber pads fully cover the band(s). USE CAUTION WHEN TIGHTENING THE 6MM HARDWARE AND THE TWO BANDS SO AS NOT TO CRUSH OR DISTORT THE SLEEVE OF THE CAN (s) . 11. Go back and tighten the two exhaust clamps per factory specification. 12. Using some brake and contact cleaner on a clean rag, carefully wipe down the entire exhaust system to remove any residual oils, anti seize, fingerprints and dirtprior to starting the motor. FAILURE TO CLEAN THE TUBING AND CAN MAY RESULT IN PERMANENT STAINING OF THE SYSTEM WHEN HEATED. 13. Check that all hardware is properly tightened, then start the motor and check for exhaust leaks. 14. Reinstall the fairing and tighten any fasteners per factory specification. *Please note that Figure 1 listsquantities of hardware necessary per TiForce end can installation.
