Question Slash Pipes Installation HELP !!!!!!

I just received a box with RPW slash pipes, free from the Vic-shop, as I was the first Vic to buy in this island..... now read the below website///// ANYBODY INSTALLED THESE WITHOUT CUTTING THE FRAME ????
ps = I did not choose these pipes, these exhaust was ordered without my consent, as I would like "ground ponders"

Slash Pipes Installation Directions

From the website;

http://www.rpwusa.net/slash-pipes

STEP 1: Begin by removing the existing pipes from the motorcycle, and then inspect the exhaust gaskets. If they are worn or deteriorated, fit the engine with a new set.

STEP 2: Installation of Slash pipes requires the lower frame rail to be cut off as shown. Deburr the frame rail with a file or burr knife to leave a smooth edge and cover any bare metal with touch-up paint to prevent rust.



any advice / pictures would be appreciated ....

I just installed these on my vegas a couple weeks ago. I had the victory swept pipes on before. The part you have to cut was already cut on mine. Apparently the Vic swepts require the same part to be cut. Not a big deal at all.

Go ahead and cut it. The dealer would do the same if you were having the Vic X-bow or Swept pipes put on.

OK cut it off, painted it, filled it with silicon high temp

the bracket was touching the rear-swing-arm so I bent it into a small "S" that worked real well, now installing the last small bolt is a pain-in-the-butt

I did install the strange looking baffles, guess back-pressure must be maintained.... guess these pipes are fricking loud too hahaha looks like just straight pipes mate

I will attach a picture when done....

That part of the "frame" is used as an exhaust support. Just put Zoomies on my buddy's High Ball. You could leave it on but you will have this ugly pipe/mount curving up from the side of your bike. It's really easy to take off( I think 5 bolts), put in a vise and hack saw the end off. Little spray paint and good to go

You can also purchase a black or chrome plug to place in the hole that is left after cutting the frame. It has an o ring on it to help keep water out of the frame and you just dab some silicone on it and you are all set. It is a much better look than just leaving the hole open or trying to silicon the whole hole. They can be purchased from several sources, and I think I got mine from Witchdocter.com but it could have been any of several other vendors that offer it. I love my RPW slash pipes. They look good with the lines of my Hammer and have a great sound though there are times when next to car when I take off they sound like all hell is breaking loose. They clearly scared off a deer here in Michigan that was thinking about crossing the road in front of me when I blipped he throttle and scared his deer ass off and back into the woods.

Does anyone know if you have to go through pretty much the same procedure for the Freedom swept pipes? My bike has the Victory swept pipes and I eventually want to swap.

Not sure, but here's some pictures explaining what "needs" to be cut and why I didn't bother.... Also, I was afraid if I ever went with a different exhaust, it might use this bracket. Cutting it off wasn't an option in my mind.
