How I mounted Collector and Mid-pipe

Although there are 4 months to the season starts in Norway I mounted the new exhaust today.

Here is a summary of how it went.

The plan was that it would take 2-3 hours. I used more.

This is a before picture.

Dismantling

The disassembly went very well until I was going to loosen this screw. But with a little power loosened it.

And there is the old removed.

A little difficulty to bring out the whole welded plant out behind the radiator.

Then it's time for assembly.

Much easier to mount the O2 sensor. To remove from the old facility was cramped.

Slightly poor quality of the picture here.

Collector

It is easy to put in place the new Collector when you can twist the tubes.

Then I'm almost at the finish

Bonding with the old and the new exhaust fits very well.

Finally finished.

The sound is a bit tougher.

It provides some much smoke as soon as I started. But I assumed that was the exhaust seal that burned up.

Then I just pack up the stuff and hide the bike in the garage. Not much summer here. (Last photo)

Hope this can be of help to someone. When an amateur like me can get it together, most people can achieve it.

Sincerely, Glenn

I never even tried to change the headers without pulling down the radiator, I thought I will damage the ribs.
Nice work.

BTW; you have too much oil in the engine! When cold it should be in the middle of MIN and MAX mark. Oil heats up very much in these engines, and if you have it at MAX mark when cold, than there is too much of it when engine is hot.
Besides, I can see you even have it over the MAX mark. Use a narrow tube, fi 5mm and a syringe and syphone it out through the filler cap on the clutch cover. I estimate you have at least 0.5 liter too much in it.

Thanks for the tip. I'll suck out a little oil before I ride.

I approach my service and have run with this oil for almost 6000km.
What could be the consequence of too much oil?

Oil was replaced by the local MV Store, not good to fill in too much.
