    how easy is it to get the original can off

    I've just ordered a new can for 02 mille (mtc carbon) and i want to know what to expect when removing the original can on my 8 year old bike.

    is it a case of remove springs and twist hard? how do i know how much force is too much?

    thanks

    Should be ok , just need a strong grip on the springs to get them off and then twist and pull the can . Put a beowulf on mine shortly after getting it.

    Easy to get original off. Can be a bastard to get new on but mine went on easy enough with a touch of WD40 and instead of trying to force it on, just relax and ease it on.
