Re: Hindle Insilation

Don't tighten anything up until everything's mounted, in place, and you have proper clearance for everything. Then slowly start to tighten everything at the same time

Re: Hindle Insilation

So if it wont hurt any thing, sounds good to me - I guess the real high temp stuff is what you want ( that goes without saying I guess ) .

You should use a full tube on each joint . Hope you don't eat that one up . No need for silly cone on any application . Right gasket for the right part . Heard a lot of Hindle guys using it . Get what you pay for though .

Re: Hindle Insilation

Directions say to us silicone at every joint that slips together, just a little dab will do ya.I think it helps the pipes slid on easier. Especially by the head.

Re: Hindle Insilation

Just take your time and be patient! I was not, and the damn thing took me ALL DAY to install. In the end I was a very HAPPY man, but it was a bit of a pain.

Good luck!

Re: Hindle Insilation

No silicone here and it took me about an hour and a half including removing the stock system (but not including any bodywork removal). I had new gaskets and the system never leaked.

Re: Hindle Insilation

Thanks for all the input, I got it installed on Friday, It took like an hour to an hour and a half to put on. No real big deal . I put a dap of ultra high temp copper rtv @ each joint and replaced my exhaust gaskets . What a great pipe ! The sound is a real mellow growl with no raspiness , that turns into a real mean growl @ around 10k. I just need to 1-get the jetting sorted and 2- do something with the rear turn signals (its not a high pipe , but , its is closer to turn signal that I like ). I will have to find Crittar so I can post a picture of it . Again , thanks alot again !

That absolutely blows me away.

I'll take Hindle owners' word that the pipes are well crafted and a good value, but of the full systems I've owned on other machines (Akrapovic and Yoshimura), RVT isn't needed or called for.

Re: Hindle Insilation

The Yoshimura I installed on the wifes bike didnt call for RTV either, but, there were not as many conections as there are on my pipe .Guess they want you to put a dab here and there just to make sure you dont have any leaks, better safe than sorry .Something funny though, as I waashed my truck yesterday I noticed these orange dots on the frnt bumper, what were they ? RTV that had been bown out , guess a dab got into the air flow and got blasted out.

Re: Hindle Insilation

I dunno, man. I guess the thought of having to use RVT to seal up the joints in a brand new exhaust strikes me the wrong way. I wouldn't think the number of seams have anything to do with it really.... I mean, the pipe either fits together tightly and with precision or it doesn't. (?)

Edit: Not flaming the Hindle, btw.
