please help...again

when i removed the stock cans to replace there are these clamps on the end of each of the Y pipe, they are wrapped fully around with no openings and are clamped down indented into the pipe, they dont slide, dont twist, and i need them gone so my new cans can slide down further, anyone ran into this? do i use a cutter and cut them, im scared of cutting the pipe. heres a pic. (its the rusty ring)

Please put an arrow to exactly which piece you are talking about. Because (and my eyes aren't the best), I think you are actually talking about the exhaust gasket.

I thought the Two Brothers was a single can? You should have received a new pipe to replace the Y-pipe and a dummy can for the left side that is storage only.

But to answer your question, NO. The stop on the Y-pipe does not come off and is to be used as a stop for how far the can slips on.

It seems to me that you have either the wrong system or a incomplete system.

i bought the dual can system, so the Y stays there, however what ever the metal band was, i used a cutter to cut it, then used an air hammer with narrow tip on it to pop it off, hope its not a big deal. just finished the whole job, cant wait for the silicon sealent to dry so i can try it out. thanks for the help.

I put on the Yoshi slip ons and I didn't have to cut anything....
When you took off the stockers they should of came off from the ends of the y-pipe. Did you disassemble the cans from the midpipe? That clamp should loosen and then the midpipe along with the can should slip off with a little twisting. Then the new one slips on, and the rusty ring is as far as it can go.

I am not sure about the silicone sealant. I didn't use any and don't think Ive heard of anybody using it before.

I'm pretty sure that metal band is there as a stop to keep your cans from sliding down the y pipe.

Call me crazy... but I still think you are missing parts, have the incorrect parts or the wrong system.

What is the part number?

here is the instructions from my exhaust http://www.twobros.com/Cust_Service/...004xD_Inst.pdf it came with high temp silicon sealer to use at each fitting and is included on the two bro's website instructions. i followed the directions and it turned out great, sure sounds good to me.

Isn't that the gasket for the stock mufflers? I would think you could take it off if the two brothers system doesn't use it.

I don't know, but I know those 'stops' (or rings) are still on the Y-pipe and their looks to be some sort of metallic mesh gasket inside the slip on part of the stock exhaust.

EDIT: Here is a picture from LordDuckHunter's site showing detailed installation of Sato pipes AND the ring/stop in question.

Yep you're right. I looked in the manual and there is that ring and a gasket. When I removed mine I guess I didn't look inside the muffler so I didn't see the real gasket.

Should be O.K. But I think you'll want to install new ones if you decide to reinstall the stock cans.

Hey, hey.. Hey there..

Gorilla glue is great a long as you spit on the matching part.

But on an exhaust system, I wouldn't count on it.

It would look something like a bad spray foam installation.

I installed a FMF silencer/spark arrestor on my SX 450 KTM dirt bike and I used the high temp silicone as well. Seems like all the dirt bike guys use it on 4 strokes.
