Free Spirits Parts .com has the exhaust header sans cat . Not cheap but looks real nice . You probably should have done the header change first as it will likely increase performance way more than a muffler change . Sorry Brooke

Did you removed the baffle from the Arrow can? I am assuming the baffle is removable as it is on the the Arrow can for the 800.

My baffle looked open when i Looked in the can. The baffle in the Arrow exhaust on the Tiger 800 had a small torques head screw in holding the baffle in, this screw had a tiny spot weld on as to be road legal. I used a tiny sharp chisel to crack the spot weld and then got a good fitting torque's bit in a big screwdriver and the screw came out. I then inserted the wooden handle of a hammer into the baffle end and wriggled up and down gently pulling back... slowly the baffle worked its way out.

Please note this is for the Arrow exhaust on Tiger 800 so yours could be different.

Hi lads, ok part one is done ,i have got my new full system from lextek uk at€440 to my door ,its on the bike it looks good the can and pipes are of good quality for the money lot of work to put it on but now no how to take the 2 side fairing ,tank, and move the fan, all will Come in handy when changing air filter and oil. Have to say all the nuts and bolts on the bike and how its put together is good, i and coming from a Yamaha xtz1200 super tenere and Japanese bike all my life amy some pic will put up a soundtrack if i can .next up k/ N air filter and a run on the dyno to set all up tks20191127_104334.jpg20191204_210026.jpg
