Exhuast tip removal

Postby Dolph60 » Fri Jan 13, 2012 7:31 pm



I just purchased a 1993 Gl1500se, it came with a lot of extras not installed including a set of triple turn down tips.My question is how do you remove the stock tips with out cutting the off,or is it posssible?

There should be a set screw and a collar inside the turndowns. At least thats how they are on my 93SE. By the way, welcome to the forum.

Any I've seen were rivetted on. Some aftermarket turndowns slip right over the whole original tip, have you tried that?

Lucky you.The PO removed the tips on mine to put on the same extensions and now it's horrible to listen to the constant droning noise.viewtopic.php?f=16&t=10460
