Full Exhaust

Has anyone installed a full exhaust yet on their L2? I had a full Leo Vince on my '06 and I don't remember it being overly difficult to get to the rear header screws. I'm not sure where the design changes are, but this one looks pretty tough to get to back there. I like the deep aggressive note and the extra power that the Leo provided, but the don't make a slip-on for the L2.

I will be getting a Yosh pipe in the next 8 weeks. I will let you know, but it doesn't look difficult...

I put on an akra which replaced the rear header pipe and it was easy.. You can access the bolt on the left side of the bike for the rear header clamp Seperate the front header at the lower clamp ... Take all the mounting bolts holding the exhaust off and pull the whole stock exhaust right off.

Thanks for the input. The bolt that looks tough to get to is the right rear header bolt. I'll have see if I can find/make a 12" long hex driver to get to it straight on.

I just looked again and realized I never removed the 2 header bolts and the small pipe coming out since I only needed to remove the connecting clamp which was easy to access with a T handle hex...actually glad I only did the slip on akra since I agree that bolt looks a bit challenging to access...

Yea, I think I'm going with the Akra slip-on as well. How does it sound?

Akra sounds awesome..there is a whole thread on it and I put some pics up of mine ... http://www.stromtrooper.com/dl650-20...2012-a-19.html I bought it from Blair, a fellow strom trooper from SV racing. and highly recommend him for the best customer service as well as the best price...
