Help with Hindle Slip On

I own a 01 CBR 929 RR and recently purchased a Hindle slip on however after taking off the stock muffler there is a metal cone inside the header pipe and the hindle pipe fits over it but does not but up against the header pipe all the way.

I spoke with someone at Hindle and they said that it is a fitting that can be removed and once it is the pipe will fit properly is that correct please help.

Thank You

Re: Help with Hindle Slip On

I'm surprised that the can doesn't fit over it. I thought the only slip-on that required removing the cone was the two brothers. No matter, cut it off, it won't hurt anything. You'll need a hacksaw and some elbow grease. Leave about 1 inch. Then put the new can on and use some high-temp gasket sealer.

Yep. Thats what I would do. I know some people do cut the cone off anyway.

Re: Help with Hindle Slip On

My Hindle bolt-on had an extra gasket that gave you the option of leaving the cone on by spacing the cannister another 1/4" from the flange. I cut the cone anyway, as anytime you can remove weight without sacrificing safety or performance, it makes the decision easy.

Re: Help with Hindle Slip On

hack that cone off, with a hacksaw-around 5-10 minutes...it can only help a bit, cant hurt!! Definitely leave an inch and use some high temp silicone around the stock copper gasket when you reseal...

Re: Help with Hindle Slip On

Order the header from Hindle and just replace the whole system

He would need to return the bolt on, as it won't work with a set of headers/mid-pipe.

Re: Help with Hindle Slip On

Oh yea I forgot the stock exhaust was a bolt on, I only saw mine when I brought my bike home the day I bought it, then my already waiting full hindle went on.

You're right I'm a dumbazz
