Mine turned up yesterday too and I am going to fit myself. Going to get a dyno run done so I have some comparison before fitting it up. Hoping to see some midrange improvement.

I can not for the life of me pull these things out even with pliers....
All I have to do is remove the single 4mm screw behind the muffler tip, and then try pliers on the inner most pipe and pull?

I've used the force of life and these fucking baffles won't come out.

Thanks

Wiggle it around some while pulling it out. Shouldn't need pliers or any tools at all. I certainly didn't.

Try finding a hard plastic/rubbery object that's a bit smaller diameter the baffle holes, shove it snug in that sucker and slowly wiggle them out. It will come off easier this way since you are not bending/pulling it unevenly.

Just did mine last night. Using pliers if they are all the way in will only bend the baffles and make it more difficult to get them out.

I used a great neck multi-use screwdriver head that I bought from Lowe's (it has torque bits for the windshield) to get it out.


Also, if you haven't gotten to it yet, make sure you do not tighten the head bolts until after you fit the mufflers, you might have to remove the side stand, and a spring hook puller will be awesome !

same issue with mine. i ended up giving up because i couldn't get them move, leaving it to the workshop to remove!

i am guessing once they are on and got some heat they might be easier to remove
