    Question pardon my newbness

    Hello all. Well I got in my sweet Akro slip-ons today.
    I installed them and used all the parts that came with them.
    Oh this is on an 07 RSV 1000. They are kind of loose and wiggly.
    I plan to call my dealer and or my friend who is a mechanic / bike nut.
    Just thought I would pass this to you guys / gals for any ideas on what I did wrong. Its late at night lol so I could not even crank up my baby to hear her new cans ... cheers from new orleans ...

    to be honest i found mine to be a bit loose too, but with the 3 springs in place all should be held together well enough, especially with the exhaust hanger secuerly fastened, makes them easy to remove to work on the bike though
    lol
    with baffles in they sound the same as standard pipes so get that baffle out and you'll love them

    no no no
    look inside the end can (where the fumes come out lol) and you see like a pipe inside a pipe. underneath there is a small allen bolt, undo it, remove it and pull out the inner pipe which is the baffle
