Hey guys ive found a good deal on a used can for my sv650s k8. It is a blueflame tri oval. However this is my first bike and first time trying to fit an exhaust and ive got some questions because i cant figure this out. Does the current exhaust need to be cut anywhere ?

here is what i have so far:

the can , link pipe for the sv650s k8

link pipe attached to can

i was told the first part covering my stock pipe is the heatshield which is then attached to the can but im not sure how i remove this because there are two screws which attach the heat shield to the main pipe but they have been soldered on from underneath...


The two bolts shown here will not turn because they are soldered from underneath..


So i would really appreciate if some one could just clarify how the stock pipe comes off and what exactly needs to be cut/unscrewed and how my new set up fits on..

thanks guys.

I fit my Yosh pipe by cutting thru the stock pipe and heat shield with a very thin grinding wheel. Once you get thru the heat shield will pull right off. Just be sure to cover as much of the bike as possible so it does'nt get metal all over it, and look online for the proper place to cut the pipe.

2 inches to the left of the weld, cut the exhaust pipe.

Use a sawz-all™ or hack saw (slow)

cut straight and voila! make sure you start it so you know just how obnoxious your bike can be ;D

So 2 inches above the weld cut through the whole thing not just the heat shield? and the entire can will come off including some of the exhaust pipe?

also wont i be needing a new heatshield for the new can ?

Thanks for the help!

If you take the tube that came with your blue flame over to your bike you'll see what i mean. that piece is used to replace the section of pipe you're cutting off.

the heat shield most likely won't fit the cans curve. I just go without one. not needed too much as long as you are conscious about the exhaust by your heal

I was looking at slipons on eBay. Is it really this complicated to perform the slip on procedure? I'm asking because I'm no mechanice, but I was hoping I'd be able to hack the old one off and 'slip' the new one on... am i dreaming?

You aren't dreaming. Take off the heatshield (by any means necessary), cut the pipe and slide 'er on.

Not hard at all, the heat shield bolts are tack welded so put a wrench on them and they just snap off. I removed the exhaust to cut the pipe but some guys cut the pipe without removing the pipe. Put a piece of plywood behind the pipe so you don't hit the swingarm (use a hacksaw or a sawzall). Cut 2" back from the weld, if its CA model go 2 1/8" to miss the honeycomb piece inside the pipe. Good luck!

Not a dream...did it a couple nights ago. Just take a saws-all chop the old one off and slip the new one on, took about 15 minutes.
