hey all, looking to get this slip on exhaust within the next week, hoping this is an install i can do by myself. is there any cutting involved or just bolts to remove and replace? is there a write up anywhere on here? thanks so much guys

01sv650s

is this exhaust even available for this bike? haha. i want something louder than stock, but not crazy crazy loud, looking to spend in the 300 range, thanks all

The RS3 comes with a brief instruction page that covers the procedure sufficiently.

Summarized:
Cut pipe a few inches from the weld.
Undo bolt.
Remove stock exhaust.
Place RS3 onto pipe, tighten clamp.
Bolt onto passenger peg mount.
Be noisy.

oh ok easy enough, thank for that info sir. motorcycle superstore said there was no cutting involved, but i thought there must be, thats why i was confused. what type of saw can cut thru this? thanks so much for the help

I cut mine off with a combination of hacksaw and dremel tool with cutoff discs..but, a sawzall would be quicker with the correct blade installed. The install of the new one took minutes, easiest part.

all slip ons for SVs require cutting the pipe - there's no other way to remove it, sadly.

I've got a full RS3 on my bike and like it.

got it on and running. took me longer than all of yall tho haha a lot longer, bout 2 hours actually. if i did it again i bet i could knock it down to 30 minutes or so though. was curious to get your opinion on this though; i didnt expect any power gains, but damn it sure feels a heck of a lot quicker, does anyone else notice this too? I got it just for sound and looks, but was really really surprised when i gunned it for the first time. thanks for all the info in this thread, helped a lot

^ Have you rejetted for the exhaust? SV's are pretty lean to start with, adding a more free-flowing exhaust makes this more lean.
