A Few Notes On Arrow Slip-On Install

Received the slip-on last week and immediately started install. As LoneRanger indicates, it is a bit difficult threading bolt on metal strip around muffler, but a little patience helps. Hawkshot99 is correct in saying directions (what directions?) are horrible. Pictures on this and other forums were most helpful. I also removed the rearset, but realized later that the leftmost allen screws do not need to be removed to get the rearset out of the way. Only the two allen screws on the right, and one bolt towards the middle had to be removed. After removing the leftmost allen screws, I had a little difficulty getting the springs back together, and readjusting the rear brake light. Also, the "hanger" bracket that accepts the flexible metal strip that goes around the exhaust, is attached on the INSIDE of the existing holes. I intially installed the hanger on the outside. Can't answer WeekendWarrior question about HP increase, but it SOUNDS faster .

I ran bike with and without baffle. Even though I'm very concerned about not being too loud, IMO exhaust sound not a nuisance without baffle. I really like the "deep, throaty, thumpy" sound. Much more fun to ride now.
