Exhaust connection box

Postby Camp » Wed Oct 05, 2016 11:18 am



I removed the exhaust connection box to have the left side nipple for the tail pipe ( I ride a trike, so no mufflers, but tail pipes) welded, it had broken off. Let me say, it was a bear getting the box off the header pipes (I did not loosen them)! Is there an easy way to install the connection box, without loosing and or removing one or both of the header pipes? This is my first Goldwing and as you all know, some things on it are quite different from other bikes I have owned.

No, suprised you got the collector off without causing stress to the downpipes.
If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.

Thanks. I didn't think so after the problem I had getting it off. I have already ordered header pipe gaskets.

You need only remove 1 header pipe. Since the pipes arrive pointing at opposing angles, the "CHAMBER" is captured in place by the pipes.

Like previously stated you need to remove one header pipe. The right side is easier just because you do not need to work around shifter.


This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM
