complete exhaust system

Post by cb1300rider on Mon 25 Jul 2011, 7:43 pm

Howdy

Im going to be needing to replace my exhaust soon, headers and end can, anyone got any advise on the best way to remove the header pipes?

I didnt have the best experience with header pipe removal on my ntv600 i had previously.

So if anyone has experience of this and some good tips i would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance

Removing the header pipes is pretty straightforward - the only likely problem will be the studs securing the pipes to the front of the engine; they'll probably be corroded and seized, so spray some wd40 on them and leave for a while, it's not the end of the world if you strip them, they are replaceable, but it's a pain so go easy on them.
The end can really shouldn't present any trouble tho.

If I were you I'd take the opportunity to replace the studs as well. They are very cheap and if there's signs of rust on them whip em out. It's a straight forward double nut job providing you don't snap any removing the header. Liberal lubrication is recommended!

It's for this reason exactly that I always rubbed them in WD40.

The headers are pretty easyto remove and replace. The biggest problem I ever had with my exhaust was securing the clamp that links them. You have to do that up TIGHT
