Removal

!!! WARNING !!! Before working on your machine, make sure it is parked on a level surface with the transmission in park and/or the parking brake engaged. Do not work on any machine with a hot engine or exhaust.  Allow time for all parts to cool in order to reduce the risk of burns.

Blackout Exhausts: Take care not to get grease or oils on the exhaust.  Cleaning our Blackout exhaust with harsh solvents or abrasives will remove the coating and is not covered under warranty.

1. Loosen and remove the (4) flanged nuts securing the silencer to the headpipe. (See Figure #1)

2. Remove the single forward silencer mounting bolt and slide the mounting bracket off the silencer's mount.  

3. Carefully remove the remaining (4) rear silencer mounting bolts.  It is recommended to remove the lower mounting bolts first then remove the upper bolts while supporting the silencer so that it does not fall.  Save these (4) mounting bolts, they will be used during installation.  

4. Inspect the round gasket in the headpipe.  If worn or damaged replace with a new OEM gasket.  

Installation

Final Notes:

If you received a stainless steel exhaust without the Blackout coating it is normal for the pipes to change color as they heat cycle.  

The HMF Blackout exhaust will smoke and put out an odor for the first full heat cycle as the coating goes through its final curing process.  It is recommended to allow this process to happen in a well ventilated area.

All systems will produce a smoke out the end cap after a short initial heat cycle, this is the packing material bedding in and is completely normal.
