    Yes - I have them on my bike.

    Get a friend to help, as there is one bit where you need three hands - the kit comes with replacement engine bolts, the one on the left of the bike is a bugger to fit as you have to try to locate it on the nut that is way inside the engine and you can't see it - a really fiddly process. However fitting them is not difficult, just a bit irritating. Make sure you have the right tools, that's half the job - in particular you will (and I repeat, will) need a torque wrench.

    These will be my next purchase, you don't have to drill any panels! Then it's either a two brothers or arrow end can. Any body got any experience of either?
     
  4. Arrow all the way for me
     
  5. +1 that nut on the left one is a biatch to do on your own an resulted in alot of foul langauage :D

    have fitted GB bungs as described in previous post,
    same as T3's
    ratchet with two long extension bars and the nut in the socket pushed trough from the right hand side with gods little helper (the other half) on the end of it,
    then screw the bolt in from the left hand side,
    and torque it up,
     
  7. personally i prefer the tone of the tor can but the arrow is still a lovely HOWL with no baffles in, may be worth having a listen to as many different cans as poss and make your choice from there, but they all sound gorgeous in their own way

    fitted the bungs at the weekend. really quite easy, having little fingers which can reach behind the frame to hold the nut in place to get it started was a help. then have someone hold a socket on the nut with a long extension bar from the other side whilst i tourqued it up. they look nice and tidy too.
    p.s take care on your stag nige!!
