  1. First, determine if you can use a performance exhaust. It is illegal in some areas.
  2. Remove side panels with a 10 mil bolt.
  3. Next, move to the back side panel and remove button snaps.
  4. Take off the seat using a 12 mil wrench – there are 2 bolts. Slide and lift away the seat.
  5. Remove rear fascia piece using an allen wrench.
  6. Take off heat shield. Remove the 8 perimeter bolts. Take rubber grommets off top of heat shield and remove those bolts. Once done, exhaust pipe should slide out, followed by the heat shield.
  7. Before installing exhaust, there's a few things to do to the Barker's Exhaust first.
  8. Place main clamp piece over pipe.
  9. Take exhaust clamp and slide over silencer.
  10. Put silencer on main exhaust pipe and tighten down clamp.
  11. Once installed and clamp is torqued down, start up the sled. Check for air leaks. Make sure you're in a well-ventilated area as the fumes are noxious.
  12. Put rear fascia piece back on the sled. Barker's Exhaust have a special tab to hold fascia at correct distance so it won't melt.
  13. Adjust nuts and bolts to pipe fits properly.
  14. Place heat shield back on.
  15. Place rear upper fascia piece on and mount with the 2 phillips screws.
  16. Place 2 side fascia pieces on and align the tabs properly.
One of the major benefits to using a Barker's Exhaust is the impressive horsepower gain and the fact it makes your machine 12 pounds lighter! With all of the fascia pieces involved, this may seem like a daunting task, but it's relatively easy and is a great addition to your sled. Barker's Exhaust also supplies quiet cores for those area that have noise restrictions.
