OEM exhaust change to Cobra swepts
« on: Nov 05, 2012, 07:09:46 PM »
Besides the swapping of the exhaust themselves what else, if anything, is needed/required change?
A step by step from beginning to end would be great if someone were inclined to provide them.  Thanks

A set of exhaust gaskets.  That's it.  You might need a motorcycle jack and will need some wrenches.  Its easy and will take a total newby (not saying you're one) a little over an hour.

Cobra swepts are also one of the pipes that do not require a seperate fuel management system if you aren't changing the air box.

This is an easy one.  I didn't require a jack and actually I'd say having it on the kickstand helps because it aims the area you're working on at you.  Getting everything to line up can be a little tricky and an extra set of hands to help doesn't hurt so you don't scratch anything.

Thanks to all - I'm older and slower but if swapping out one set of exhaust for another set is all there is to it - I can handle that.  It was those 'other' things I didn't know about that I knew I could use some help with (had they been needed).
