KINGSTER & KNIGHTSTER - VICTORY 2 into 1 EXHAUST SYSTEM
Step 1. Begin by removing the existing pipe from the motorcycle, and then inspect the exhaust gaskets. If they are worn or deteriorated, fit the engine with a new set. Next, remove the rearmost bolt attaching the foot control bracket and loosen the front one but do not remove it. Rotate the control forward as shown. This will provide the necessary clearance to install the 2 into 1 primary pipe.
Step 3. Due to the design of the primary pipe some finesse will be require to get the ends of each pipe into the exhaust port in each head. Begin by placing the rear pipe in the rear exhaust port. Heat shields must be in place for installation of the primary pipes. See step 7
Step 5. Note: For Kingster and Knightster no cutting of frame rail is required Remove stock bracket from pivot shaft and frame rail is all that is required. Installation of the 2 into 1 pipe requires the lower frame rail to be cut off as shown. Save portion that you have cut off. Deburr the frame rail with a file or burr knife to leave a smooth edge and cover any bare metal with touchup paint to prevent rust and plug hole with plastic plug, available at any hardware store.
Step 6. On 06 and up motorcycles, remove the swing arm pivot shaft nut. Remove lower frame rail bolt. Slip threaded bracket included in this kit into the channel on the back side of the muffler. Take frame bracket and mount muffler to frame bracket with 5/16” bolts included in kit. Secure 5/16” bolts only finger tight to allow for movement of muffler on frame bracket.
Step 7. Next, slip muffler carefully onto header, slowly positioning bracket at same time over mounting studs. Put nuts on pivot shaft making sure that 3/8” washer is on inside of frame bracket. Use large hex head bolts supplied in kit, to frame on bottom of frame bracket. Now you may start tightening all nuts and bolts evenly to secure exhaust pipes to motorcycle.
Step 8. To install collector heat shield, slip the supplied hose clamps through the hoops welded onto the backsides of each shield. Install the heat shield on the pipes and tighten all hose clamps evenly, aligning the shields to assure proper fitment of heat shields.
Step 9. Tighten band clamp at muffler to header connection. .
Step 10. Prior to starting the engine, wipe the pipes down with lacquer thinner or acetone on a clean rag. Start you engine and check for exhaust leaks. You are now ready to enjoy your RPW USA exhaust pipes. Installation of this exhaust will require the use of the Victory Stage 1 Performance CPU re-flash. See your Victory dealer for details.
TUNING TIP. To help prevent bluing, the engine should be properly tuned before running it with the new exhaust. We recommend Victory download #4011322 and for 08 and up Victory’s download #4012185.
