two brothers question

Hello all. Hopefully this is not a repeat, I don't think it is. I was searching the old threads and came across someone saying that the cone on the 954 exhaust had to be removed to install a two bros bolt on. Just wondering if anyone can confirm that this is or is not the case. I just bought a two bros carbon bolt-on via ebay (great condition, 91.00 ) and will be installing it when it arrives. Also, should I pick up a new gasket for the mid-pipe to can junction, or is it re-usable? Thanks for the assistance!

Re: two brothers question

I think Two Brothers is one of the few pipes that require you to cut the cone.

Re: two brothers question

That's really quite simple. If the can doesn't fit with the cone, then the cone needs to be cut

Re: two brothers question

You'll definitely need to cut the cone. The 2bros is the only bolt-on that requires you to do so. Doesn't hurt anything. Doesn't really improve anything, either. I had one prior to installing a full system. I reused the original gasket, since I put it on before ever riding the bike (hey, it was Winter, I needed something to do!). I also used some hi-temp gasket sealer stuff.

+1

I bought a good, steel-cutting blade for a hacksaw and was able to saw off the cone in a couple of minutes. You need to leave at least an inch from the flange in order to minimize any leaks once you bolt on the can. I too used the OEM gasket and I didn't need to use any sealant (it doesn't hurt to add some though).

Have fun with it. IMHO, the Micron and the 2Bros are the two best sounding slip-ons out there.

Re: two brothers question

I have to agree the 2bros is one nice sounding pipe, a friend had one on his 929, another friend put it on his 954 and a guy I rode with in college had one on his F4i. It was when I first started riding so I didn't know a heck of a lot but I still think that F4i was the best sounding bike I've ever heard. I still like my Erion but if it didn't come with the bike I woulda bought an Akra.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: two brothers question

+1 on having to cut the cone.
Dremmel and a good hacksaw worked for me.

Mine leaked noticeably after installation, using the stock gasket. It's not much of a gasket really.
I made a new gasket for the flange and used some high temp silicone.
