Find the guide plug.bn The guide plug is shown in the shop manual with the engine removed from the frame and the left crankcase cover removed. (You’ll find this illustration in the “ELECTRIC STARTER/STARTER CLUTCH” chapter in the “STARTER DRIVEN GEAR/STARTER CLUTCH REMOVAL” section.) It’s a little bit harder to find it on the bike. Start by following the yardstick to see where the guide plug is on my bike. To find it on your bike, lie on the ground (or, preferably a mechanics creeper) next to the bike (without the yardstick) and peek under the shift lever and over the frame There it is, just barely visible from the side of the bike. Here’s what a new one looks like: 2. Clean the guide plug and crankcase. From the front of the bike, clean the guide plug and crankcase with brake cleaner in a VERY focused spray. Let the cleaner evaporate before moving to the next step. Page 4 Rev: Draft 5/20/2007 Page 4 of 5 3. Reposition the guide plug. a. From the side of the bike, use the yardstick (or a long screwdriver if you prefer) to gently push the guide plug back into the crankcase. (Note the JB Weld from the previous patch operation.) b. From the front of the bike, gently push upward on the bottom of the upper tab (as shown below) or the bottom of the forward tab to rotate the guide plug into the proper position while maintaining pressure with the yardstick

REMOVING THE STOCK EXHAUST SYSTEM 1. Remove the two header nuts from the exhaust port on both front and rear cylinders. The nuts will be reused during installation. 2. Remove the mounting bolts/nuts located below the lower muffler. Carefully remove the entire system and set it aside. Note: The system is heavy so have someone assist you. 3. Remove the muffler mounting bracket from the frame but save the two bolts for reuse. INSTALLING YOUR NEW VANCE & HINES EXHAUST SYSTEM 1. Check the stock exhaust gaskets to be sure they are in good shape. If you have any doubts as to their condition, replace them. 2. Remove the bar bracket from the box. Hold the bar bracket in front of you with the four hole bracket positioned to the right hand side and pointing down. Mount one muffler to the bracket on the left hand side of the bar using two of the 5/16″ bolts (supplied) and leave them loose. Be sure the small end of the muffler is pointing to the right hand side. 3. Slide a chrome muffler clamp (supplied) onto the inlet end of each muffler. 4. Slide a new flange onto each header tube. Note: The two smaller holes in the header flanges are offset from the large hole. If the small holes do not align with studs at the exhaust port, spin the flange on the pipe one half of a turn and try again. Refer to Figure 1. 5. Place the head pipe into the heat shield, unscrew all of the hose clamps (supplied) until they are completely loose. Feed the tail end of the hose clamp into the clips on the inside of both heat shields. Wrap the hose clamp around the head tube and give the screw three to four turns, leaving heat shield loose on the head pipe. Note : The screw end of the hose clamp should be accessible, but not visible when pipe is mounted on the bike
