Exhaust pipe removal

OK, So the rear pipe comes out easy enough, any tips on the front pipe removal?

Doh, drop the skid plate ... nevermind....

Got the carb kit in, the Muzzy's are in and now I'm getting ready to header wrap all the pipes and cool the engine area down a bit

Yeah, right... I bet it would be easier than the muzzy system! It was driving me nuts until I glued the exhaust gaskets on the pipe - Getting it all lined up and fitted properly was driving me nuts.

Wrapping the pipes was a whole new nightmare! What a freaking pain, but it should help a lot with the heat, and I am also adding heat insulation on all the plastic panels too. I suppose I should take some pictures

I just installed the Muzzy system yesterday. It is a bitch getting the Kawa gaskets installed. Dab of grease is not for the non-mechanic types but it can be done. Did not think of gluing but should have. Love the results so far with the system installed..

You will be glad you wrapped the pipes as it is much cooler in the machine now. Even my wife noticed it was MUCH cooler.

yeah, I had some weatherstrip cement sitting in the toolbox and after the grease not working well enough I just used that. worked pretty good, although I must admit I was irritated that Muzzy did not include the gaskets in the kit. I just used the old ones and they seem to work fine with no leaks.

Yeah, I did the pipes and I also put heat insulation on all the plastic pieces as well, that should also make a big difference, and since it is thick stuff it should also help with the noise too. I'll post pics later

reminder for next time, take it for a run and check the jetting before replacing all the plastic cowling in the cab....

Too rich, I'm at 146/150, both TPI valves open, Muzzy's with the quiet cores and screens. 240' elevation. Guess I'll drop it a couple notches tomorrow. The carbs are much more responsive with the kit in it, and the Muzzy's sound SO sweet! Have a really meaty rumble, without being hard on the ears.

I am rich also at 144 & 146 with Hunterworks Kit.

The Muzzy directions call for 130 & 136.

Where would you guys go? Maybe 136 and 140?

I am also using the screens and quiet cores.

Just curious, did any advancement in the air screws lean it up any? What turns are you at with the carb/air screws?
