Slipon Install How To: Arrow In My Case.

Postby Magnum » Mon Sep 29, 2008 7:41 pm

Wow is pretty much what I think, kick azz exhaust here. Enclosed will give you a glimpse of the install it was really pretty easy with minimal tools required. Here's what I used, YMMV:

- 3/8" Ratchet
- 12MM Socket
- 12MM Box Wrench
- 4, 5 and 6MM Hex Key or Socket [I prefer sockets]
- For the Arrow Exhaust install you'll also need a 13MM socket
- Rubber Mallet
- Snap Ring Tool or Needle Nose Pliers for DB Killer Removal

If you ever find the dreaded ''Red X'' please go here Magnum to be directed to my site.

Sweet box huh, lol….
Image


Unpacked………Getting bored yet?
Image


Pic of the can:
Image


Ok, now let's get started. First I weighed it all, mounting bolts, washers, everything and it only weighs 5 lbs 5.8 ounces with the DB killer in. Pretty light!:
Image


Now I'll take the DB Killer out. You can just use needle nose pliers if you don't have snap ring pliers:
Image


Then I put the end of a broom stick in the other end of the can and pushed the DB Killer out, thanks Cloak!:
Image


Now that the DB Killer is out I weighed it, not a significant difference in weight of the overall total shown above:
Image


Now let's get the stock can off. First remove the three push clips located at the front and underside of the lower fairing. The arrow shows one and the circles show the approximate location of the other two:
Image


Now remove these three 4MM hex head bolts:
Image


Now the tricky part! Pull the bottom of the lower fairing out and then work it loose from this hook. Don't get crazy with it, take your time 'cause I doubt you want to break anything:
Image


Ok, now move on to the other side and remove it. You might be able to get away with only removing the exhaust side, but I just remove both as they are easy enough to remove:
Image


Ok, I looked under and even with the amount of tools I have I found that it was going to be a real PITA to get at the two bolts holding the stock exhaust on so I remove the rear-set and tied it up. If you remove this be careful with it as the rear brake line and such are attached. Remove these hex head bolts, the three listed as number one are 6MM and the one listed number 2 is 5MM:
Image


Now remove the stock exhaust clamp, 12MM:
Image


Now behind the rear set you can see the two bolts for the exhaust mount. These are also 12MM, but the one to the farthest left in the pic runs all the way over and has a nut that also needs to be held. See next pic:
Image


Over here, sorry for the dark pic but you should be able to locate it, this nut is also 12MM. I used a box wrench to fish through and hold the nut while loosening the bolt:
Image


Ok, it should be ready to come off. You can try and pull it off if you feel strong, but I just took a rubber mallet and lightly tapped the exhaust like so. I staggered the taps on each side of the clamp. Space is tight between the exhaust and wheel, but it will fit for removal:
Image


Now it's time to put the new can on [Arrow Exhaust]. First I put the mounting clamp where the stock mounts are. Then I took to rubber mallet and lightly tapped the end of the can near the wheel to get it on. Then I put the clamp and barely tightened it, you want to have enough play to be able to twist the can for adjustment:
Image


Here you can see the mounting bracket that came with the Arrow Exhaust. Now fit the mounting ring over the exhaust and thread the nut just a few turns:
Image


Finally get the can twisted and tweaked the way you would like it to be. For me it was important to have it tucked up nice and tight. I accomplished that after a few cuss words.:
Image


Now put the rear-set back on, verify the can is exactly where you want it and then tighten the clamp and finally the mounting ring:
Image


Now take off the protective paper on the Arrow logo, start it up and just listen………………………………………………..Now check for any leaks and reassemble the lower fairings:
Image


It sounds FREAKIN' AWESOME!!!!!!:
Image


………And looks GREAT!!!!:
Image


Oh, what's the weight on the stock exhaust? Check it out:

I was under a car port and having just heard it stock, I got the last bolt tight and turned it over and not even my helmet could hide the smile on my face... I didn't even bother with the db killer...

I think I may put the DB Killer back in tomorrow to see how it sounds with it and then make my final decision to keep it in or not after that.

I might like the sound with the db killer in just fine lol, but as soon as I pulled the pipe out of the box, I took the db killer out and it now has a fine layer of dust on my parts shelf... The shelf all my stock and extra parts go...

nope, I keep them around just in case, if one of my mods gets damaged I can replace it with the stock part and not miss any time riding...

Great write-up! :thumbup: Big help! Question: How significantly does the DB Killer cut the sound and if left in, would it spoil HP gains? Even a guess on your part would help.
Hooah!

Thanks for the great pics and instructions. I just put my Arrow on. One question, what is the liquid metal for?

pw sent, but it is probably there to lube the header so that the can slips on easier, I didn't get any with mine so I could be wrong....

Varment said it. SEX. Your 650 likes the liquid metal lube for the muffler exit. Go ahead let her have it. LoL

Thank you! I am so buying an Arrow and now feel confident enough to try this install myself, albeit with a friend to supervise.

I like the part about the cuss words - that always helps when installing something! :cool

I did it. The Arrow is on and sounds so sweet. A friend took out the DB killer, I did the rest. My hands are sore.

Love the rubber mallet - made my life so much easier!

Thank you for the guidance. :cool
