Question Help With TwoBros Bolt-On

hey guys. i have an aluminum C-2 canister from Two Bros coming in next week and was wanting to know if i could do this install myself, or if i need to take it to a dealer and have it professional done and tuned or anything. the main thing that concerned me was that in the instructions, i saw that it might require a hacksaw to cut away a piece of the stock pipe before you can install the two bros. i've got a 2002 ZX-6R. any help will be appreciated. thanks.

Unless there is something I'm missing it should be very straightforward. I think the 6R muffler is a flange on. Sould be as simle as 4 bolts for the mullfer and 1 for the mounting barcket.

You " may" notice a slight hesitation below 4 grand. This is the result of the bike running lean. A jet kit is the fix. That however is not as easy and may be better left to the dealer. Good Luck, nice bike

i have the C4 can on my bike. it was a snap to install. all you have to do with that flange is hack it off. i think the instructions say to leave 1/2 inch on it. then what i did is there is some packing inside of the exhaust. i just took some needle nose and pulled as much as i could out and then stuck a shop vac in there to get the loose pieces. less restriction means more power just make sure you put enough of the gasket sealer on there, put the four bolts in, hook up the bracket to the rear peg and you are all set. just dont forget to put the rubber piece on the clamp. i have a buddy that put a yosh rs3 on his gixxer and forgot the rubber and scratched the sh%$ out of his can and whenever you clean it, make sure it is cool and use Mother's mag and aluminum polish. that stuff works awesome, gets all swirl marks out and such.

oh yeah, btw. i have not ever had a problem with how it ran after i put it on. i did have to get the carbs cleaned because a piece of something clogged a jet. but i also have a k&n filter on it now and still runs awesome. it just sucks that i have to put it away soon for the winter anyway, keep us posted man

well guys, it looks like i won't be able to put the pipe on. someone smashed into the back of my bike on Friday and it sent me into 3 other cars. the bike is probably totalled, and the guy from the insurance company is coming to look at the bike and my injuries today. i'll tell the story in the daily rider section.
