Yoshi R 77 question

Just fitted an R77 slip on to my 2010 Blade. Has anyone had an issue with the link pipe melting the lower left side of the belly pan, right near the back?
The pipe seems pretty close to the plastic. Just wondering before I go for a ride and it gets hot!

Re: Yoshi R 77 question

If your not sure by some stick on heat shield. I bought a roll of it from Napa for $13 when I installed my Micron Serpant on my 929 I put it on the over flow tank and fairings and it worked great. It would remove any worry

Re: Yoshi R 77 question

Hi
I have a Carbon Yoshi with the Yoshi cover plate to finish the bellypan off, on my 2010 Fireblade. No problems at all here

Re: Yoshi R 77 question

Thanks guys. I've been for a couple of rides now. It's fine. I might get some of that heat shield though, just for piece of mind.

Bloody loud aren't they?!

Re: Yoshi R 77 question

My Scorpion came with home heat shield tape, I also bought some more to cover any panels that I considered to be a little close.

It's only cheap and the exhausts get very hot, as I'm sure you know.

Seen a few bikes with melted panels and that would be a nightmare !!

Fire up some pictures of her with the exhaust on mate

Sometimes I wish I was a faster rider, but there's no heroes in the graveyard..............

Re: Yoshi R 77 question

Pipe looks good mate, just about to order mine, did it come with a fitting for the o2 sensor and was it quite easy to fit?

Undo the rearmost bolt on the nearside bellypan and the 2 rearmost bolts on the off side belly pan.

Take off the exhaust valve cable from the servo....put the servo back to the same position it was in before you took the cable out of it.

Loosen the offside footpeg bolts and take out the exhaust mounting bolt....don't lose the washer, you'll need it for the new supplied bolt.

Undo the exhaust clamp bolt under the bike and wiggle the stock exhaust off the header pipe.....the servo cable might need a bit of help...you don't want it to scratch the bike!

If you're going to use the baffle, remove the blank where it screws into the new can....mine wasn't punched through very well so was a bugger!
Put the baffle in before you fit the can.

The only tricky bit is to fit the springs. You get a spring puller in the box though. If you're pulling springs towards the front of the bike, stick it in gear or you might pull it off it's stand!!!!!!!!

Make sure you have enough room for the swing arm to extend to its full extent without touching the exhaust. (weight OFF the bike I mean)

I had to nick a bolt from the stock exhaust for the rearmost bolt on the heatshield....the ones supplied aren't long enough to reach the bracket with the loose nut built into it.......you'll see what I mean when you do it.

For the front mounting bracket you need to put the spur through the hole and hold it forwards as you tighten the bolt up otherwise it will be in the wrong place. (again, you'll see what I mean) The rear top bracket supplied for the heatsheild seemed to be key for getting it all to line up right.
It's not a bad idea to fit the heat shield and get it positioned right and tighten the brackets up before removing the shield and fitting the can.

You need to tighten the exhaust clamp bolt up (where it meets the header pipe) more than you think to stop it moving.

Before you fire it up...if you didn't put the baffle in...put your fingers in your ears because it's f**king loud!!

Re: Yoshi R 77 question

Oh yeah....the one thing you asked about I forgot to mention.

Yes, it comes with the correctly threaded hole for the O2 sensor.

Clip the 2 wire ties that hold the wire(s) for the O2 sensor onto the plastic bracket. This will give you more slack for when you unbolt it.

I twisted my wire around the wrong wayas much as I dared before bolting it into the new pipe. It unwinds itself as you screw it in.

Don't forgrt to replace the wire ties to keep the wire from touching the exhaust.

I am contemplating wether or not I want to run header wrap on my exhaust.. Would be nice to ceramic coat it too though.

Re: Yoshi R 77 question

i asked a friend on the performance spec of it and he said it gives the bike a more racers look... nothing major. might even keep the temp down sice its soo close to the rad... ill keep it in mind when i get some extra dough.

Re: Yoshi R 77 question

The wrap is definitely good for helping to keep the heat of the exhaust in the exhaust.

I should call up the coating shop and see how much for ceramic coating That would be interesting


As for the racer thing haha. I dont think I have seen any of the racers here run wrap

I had to remove the crush washer on the OEM mid pipes on my exhaust when I fitted the slip-on too.
