You need to take the riders seat off and you will see a servo with the cables coming up to it - remove the cables and leave the servo connected or the fuel injection will get upset. the cables then pull through and the exhaust will come free!

cheers
Matt

Tony there are cable tentioners half way down the cables so you can loosen them off before hooking them off the wheel under the seat.
Remember to keep it rubber side down & shiny side up.........stay safe.

Tony, are they SP Engineering pipes? The picture is very small and I can't see it very well.

I was thinking of getting the SP pipes and wonder what they are like, particularly the quality and amount of noise.

Yes mate
Sp cans
If you look on eBay they are using my bike for pics
Sound is good with baffles in. I like with baffles out but every day early mornings is a bit much
Overall very good and good price
Keep it safe, keep it secure
