Arrow exhaust question

Got an Arrow exhaust system for my 04 Brutale S, also got the MV Corse slip-ons. Is this a bolt on system? Or should I get the headers/collectors/midpipe welded? Or can I just bolt it on, slipping the pipes together? I've got to get it tuned with the new chip at the dealer, and the nearest dealer is over an hour away from me. I inquired about the ballpark figures about getting it installed and haven't heard back from them. So, needless to say, I'm getting anxious to ride and I'm wanting to put it on myself.

Thanks,
-Roy

Post No welding required mate

If you have the parts with you, you should be able to figure it out before going for the assembly on the bike. Are you doing new headers too ?

I would not weld anything, exhaust wise. Both those systems should be a direct swap for the stock. (Im assuming you mean the Arrow Thunder pipe which is the low mount stubby pipe; Arrow does make a dual pipe system that routes like factory) With the Arrow Thunder the mid-pipe is removed and the Arrow unit bolted up. With the MV Corse slip ons, its just a remove and replace with the stock pipes. Check members galleries to see the difference.

I have the Arrow inbox system: headers, collectors and mid-pipe. I also have the Mv Corse slip-ons, because I'm wanting to keep the stock appearance. Will I get exhaust leaks if it's not welded?

Lightbulb No Welding Required

Just look throught the forum at other guys pipes, and see if you can find one that is welded .

The OEM exhaust on my 920 was in two parts
The headers and catalytic convertor all in one unit, then the two tail pipes
To fit the Arrow system I had to buy the full system which comprises; 4 header pipes, 2 of 2 into 1 pipes, 1 larger 2 into 1 pipe (cat eliminator) and then the slip on, everything is pushed together and held with springs, and the only fixed mounting is at the header pipes and the slip-on hanger bracket

Thanks for all your input guys. I got the exhaust all bolted on and snugged up tight with the springs. Getting it to the dealer to get it tuned next week, so I should be riding by next weekend!

Congrats mate, now is there any reason why you believe you can't ride it before you get it to the dealer.
