MIVV carbon oval install help...

The connector pipe seems either too small ID or has too short of a flange. With lubricant I cannot get it closer than 11/16 ths from going completely on. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Any tips? Can a muffler shop "stretch" the connector pipe larger? I was thinking not?

Ice on the inside pipe, and heat up the muffler pipe, then push together?

Maybe a little sanding of the inside pipe?

I'd bring it to your local muffler shop, mine fixed this in no time!

They can easily make it larger.
They can just as easily make it too large.
Take the whole bike not just the new muffler. Personally I'd use a hot rod exhaust shop as opposed to a franchise replacement shop.

What grit and type? Black 200 grit wet/dry? Heat on connector pipe sounds easy enough. What about anti-seize on the connection?

Dry ice on the male end, mapp gas on the female. Let the dry ice sit on it for about 20 minutes. AutoZone or the like will have a tail pipe expander for loan but be careful not to go too big. Check out YouTube for guidance. If you aren't comfortable with the above take it to a muffler shop.

I dunno if I'd try anti seize. Maybe some WD 40.

If I was gonna try sand paper id use some emory cloth and tear a long thin strip, then wrap it around the male side 1.5 times and pull each end back and forth. This way you remove the same amount of material evenly. Just do a little at a time then try the fit until it goes on. It should be a tight fit anyway. Are you putting enough elbow grease on it when you try?

Just torch the slip on pipe. It will expand and should slip right over.
