I just ran home during lunch to put the just-delivered package of V-Mods in the house. While waiting for my lunch to heat up, I tried yanking off the current mufflers. I thought it would just involve removing a few bolts, losening a couple clamps, and doing a little tuggin'. Well, they don't seem to "Slip-Off" as easily as I thought they would. I had to leave to get back to work before I could get any of the mufflers removed.

Is there some trick to removing the mufflers, or do I just need to keep on pulling?

R&R mufflers

Guido
You've more than likely figured it out by now but if not:

3 allens, 2 clamp bolts
1st remove all 3 allens completely.
Don't attempt to remove both mufflers together, it won't happen.
Don't yank, just jiggle each muff loose until they are free and remove.
Re-install V-Mods in reverse order as removal.
After proper torquing, check your work and fire that bad boy up.
Check for exhaust leaks, then go scare your neighbors :eek:

Tell us how you like them

Yep, Rob, got the v-mods on. Turns out I needed to just keep pulling and wiggling ( the muffler that is :) )

Since I didn't have time to work on the bike until 11pm, I didn't do much more than fire the bike up and rev it to ~4k. Sounds pretty good so far. If it's dry enough tomorrow, I'll take it out and "demo" it to the neighborhood...
