Exhaust temporary disassemble

Hey, guys and gals. Check out this pic and let me ask ya'll a question...



This clamp that is holding the 2-into-1 that goes into the tail assembly... I need to access the frame so that I can keep the bike supported while I remove the aluminum rear engine/swingarm brackets. Can this clamp be removed and the exhaust pipes separated? I would've thought that these pcs were welded. Whatcha think?

Thanks!

I haven't been there before, but it looks to me like it will come a part.

A quick glane at the manual confirms it.

Exhaust will separate when bolt and gasket are removed.

No welds there. Loosen the clamp and you have what's known as the "Y" pipe that leads up to the cans. I dis-assembled all of these pieces and sent them out for jet-hot coating right after buying my bike in '04.

I plan to die young, as late as possible.

Well, Str8, after seeing sbeau's pics of his powder coated machine, it inspired me to do the same. So anything on that bike that even slightly resembles aluminum will get the matte black treatment!

Thanks, Semi. I certainly understand why you wanted the coating... I bought mine new in August of this year, has a tick over 4,000 miles on her, and it looks like it's been sitting outside for a decade under there! And I clean her religiously.

Looking forward to seeing the finished product. Mine comes apart soon, ceramic coating the pipes and more powercoating.

Don't want to disable it yet though, got a 60 mile ride in today...brisk to be sure, but still enjoyable!
