Ducati 1098/ 848 Exhaust System with Carbon Fiber Installation Instructions


Filed Under (Ducati) by admin on 25-10-2010

- Install barrel clamps to both slip-on tubes. – Install mufflers and attach using the 8mm bolts and 8mm split lock washers provided. – Align mufflers and tighten the 6x14mm V.A.L.E.™ hardware when the slip-on tube clearance and the muffler alignment is correct. (It may be easier to tighten one bolt first, then remove the slip-on tube assembly to tighten all of the rest of the hardware. – Tighten barrel clamps. Double check all your work to make sure the mufflers are aligned and all hardware is tightened. Before you run the bike, clean off all fingerprints and dirt, as any oily residue will etch the metal and become somewhat permanent when the system gets hot. Run the bike and enjoy. It is normal for some white smoke to appear the first time you start the bike. This is packing/ manufacturing oil from inside the pipe burning off. Check for gaps or leaks. If you find a leak, a little high temperature silicon sealant should fix it. After 50 to 100 miles, recheck all fasteners for tightness
