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

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. :idunno: 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.

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.

Order the header from Hindle and just replace the whole system :nod:
He would need to return the bolt on, as it won't work with a set of headers/mid-pipe.

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
