Directions: TRUE DUAL
Maintenance Tip: To keep you new RPW USA pipes looking their best, we recommend applying a high quality chrome polish to them every time you detail your motorcycle
Please Note: Pipes are not warranteed against bluing and UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE will pipes be warranteed after they have been run on an engine. See TUNING TIP.
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, loosen the bolt to the floorboard and move floorboard out of the way. Remove the rear most 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 head pipe.
Note: Use blue lock tight on frame bolts to mount frame brackets
Step 2. Take three mounting bolts out of oil cooler for 08-09 models.
Step 3. Installation of the True Dual 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 4. Attach heat shields to header pipe. Offer the right hand side header pipe into place on the engine using slip head clamping, putting nuts on flanges tight.
Step 5. Using right hand side pipe bracket loosen 10mm allen head bolt back inside motor mount. Loosen approximately 5/16”.
Step 6: Undo bolt from frame rail position. Slide mounting bracket up into bolt by sliding on back bolt first. Do not tighten bolts at this time.
Step 7: With right hand muffler with clamp on, Make sure bolt and seam will be facing inside and down, slide muffler into header until approximately even with heat shield about 2”. At this time use 5/16” x ¾” bolts. Attach muffler to new frame bracket. Finger tighten 5/16” bolt. Now snug bolts on frame bracket evenly. Go thru all mounting bolts at this time at right side and tighten.
LEFT HAND INSTALLATION:
Step 9: Install heat shield to left hand side header pipe. Install header pipe snugging nuts down on clamps to allow a little movement of head pipe.
Step 11: Slide frame rail bracket, older models use ¾” black spacer and 10mm supplied bolt. 2008 and present bikes used 8mm supplied bolt and 2” aluminum spacer.
