Default RPW Big Slash Installation

Who here has put one of these things on?

I've got the head pipe on. That was a giant pain in the rear as it had to be stretched out quite a bit to clear the heads. I lined the whole thing with painters tape and still managed to scratch the back heat shield by the rear exhaust port. Oh well.

My problem now is that the muffler wont slide far enough onto the collector. It goes on about 1.5 inches and lacks about .5 inch from being fully seated.

Anybody else had this problem? If so what did you do about it.

I've put a lot of exhausts on cars, never a bike, but holy S$%t never one this hard.

Some members had problems with other types of exhaust, come to find out that it was the wrong part number. Would not exactly fit. Is it for the 100 CI or the 106 CU motor? V 92 is different also. Might be some thing that was over looked..

It's the right part. I've been talking directly to RPW about it. I'm hoping they swap it out with a different one. I'm at my wits end with this thing. I expected the head pipes to be hard, not the muffler.

try spraying them with some WD-40. I had a much harder time with the header. Maybe tap the end of thee muffler with a rubber mallet ?

Default RPW Big Slash Install

The WD-40 and progressively harder hits with the rubber mallet finally worked. Thanks for the suggestion. This thing better be bad ass after all this trouble.

Default RPW Big Slash Install

Just got everything put back together after the Big Slash/S&S intake installs. Took it outside and fired it up and all I can say is I LOVE IT. This is what this bike was meant to sound like. I took it for a short ride after it warmed up and it sounds fantastic. I know I've said loud is subjective but it's pretty loud, just like I wanted it. I'll try and get some pics and video posted later.

This thing was a monumental PITA to install (the exhaust, the S&S was cake) but it was worth it.
