    I have a 97 with the factory muffler and want to put a nicer sounding muffler on it,

    I'm thinking of a 9 in Delkevic high mount unit. They seem reasonably priced.
    I'm not much of a home mechanic although can do a few basics. But would the above be easy to install? It seems like it is and I guess Youtube could always help me but can anyone offer any advice?

    Cheers from NZ!

    I put one on my 94 with basically no issues. The strap that holds the pipe near the collector was a bit of a pain but it wasn't that bad.

    Message me and I can send a clip of the sound. I think for the price, you can't beat it.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I ran a Delkevic on my 5th gen, it was hard to fault, held up well for 30,000km that I had the bike, sounded good, looked nice, fitted easily. IMG_1012.JPG

    Sure is. I live in Howick, and quite enjoy the Kaiaua loop.

    20190512_111544.jpg On a scale of 1 to 10 it's a 2. Not hard to install. We're talking 3 bolts to take the Oem muffler off. The new high mount muffler requires a bracket bolted to the subframe and a little plastic trimming. You need to take the right side tail cowl off to install. And then 3 bolts to install. The hard part is the lengthy time adjusting to get just right. Then tighten everything down. Its fiddly around the passenger peg but I removed mine for looks. BTW it stays cool even after a long hot ride. Sounds great and cost little. Do it.
