Grrrrr!  I was thinking about this exhaust for a while and just stumbled upon this group buy today after the cut off date!  Just sent them a message - here's to hoping for a break.  That's what I get taking too long to get out of hibernation mode.

Jeff, if you have Allen wrenches and 30 minutes this can be done easily.  As jobs go it is oil change easy in fact Delkevic doesn't even send instructions, You will need a stainless steel 3/8 bolt with a lock washer and a nut (about a buck) to do the job.  Heck, get to know your bike and don't tighten the joints too hard until they are all lined up and it is where you want it, then tighten them all up good and snug.  A word of advice, there are three mounting points on the stock can and only two on the Delkevic and the rubber bumper from the stocker comes out and you can re-install it in the center stand hole.

Well, I received it today, and installed it this evening.

A couple of thoughts -- First, I didn't need the bolt/washer/nut that I bought.  It came with everything, including an extra rubber cover for the clamp.

It also came with the rubber plug for the center stand "bumper".

It definitely took more than 30 minutes.  Given a bunch of trips to and from the toolbox to get more stuff, it took about an hour.

Part of that was that I had to remove the Canyon Cage rear crash guard.  It completely covered the bolt that the new clamp attached to.

The tip about having one more bolt to remove than is replaced was quite helpful!

Anyway, I fired her up, and really like the new sound.

Thanks all for the advice and help.  And hats off to the fine folks at Delkevic!

Well I missed out on the group buy, but the staff at Delkevic were very friendly and still gave me a break, though not as good as the group buy, but still showed they care. 

The can went on pretty easily, looks and sounds great!

well, the slip on arrived today but there s a missing part. I guess I should have a metal strap to attach the muffler to the frame bracket

no strap.............damn

got the strap today. And they gave me a Delkevic multitool as a gift. Nice gesture from them
