Re-tighten stock head pipe at the cylinder head. TEST RIDING 1. When you fi rst ride the bike be aware that the characteristics are often quite different so start out slowly. TUNING 1. On the KX450F, we suggest using stock jetting based on our testing condition. These specifi cations should only be used as a guideline. Riding at different elevations or climates may require using different settings to obtain peak performance. If you need additional assistance, please refer to your Kawasaki owner’s manual. 2. To convert system from Offroad to Competition specifi cations, remove the 5mm Allen bolt and Spark arrestor. Two different Db lowering inserts are also available (see accessories section on page 2). To return the system to Offroad specifi cation re-install the Spark arrestor into the rear of the muffl er using a small amount of blue thread locking compound (Loctite® 243) re-tighten the 5mm Allen bolt (6.5 ft pounds)

Starting on one side of the bike, loosen the clamp securing the muffler to the headpipe. Remove the two bolts securing the muffler to the mounting bracket on the saddlebag support of the bike. Keep these bolts for use with your new slip-on mufflers. 4. Using supplied clamp over new slip-on muffler install over stock headpipe. Align the mount tab with holes in the mounting bracket on the saddlebag support. Note that there is a left and a right side pipe. The clearance dent is on the side closest to the swingarm providing clearance on many models. Secure pipe with stock bolts. Be sure to apply Loctite® to bolts upon re-installation. 5. Securely tighten bolts, and then tighten the clamp securing the slip-on muffler to the headpipe. 6. On the opposite side of the bike, repeat steps 3-5. 7. Reinstall saddlebags. 8. Be sure to check proper alignment and clearances before riding. 9. Every time you perform regular maintenance be sure to re-torque all clamps and fasteners. SUGGESTION: For maximum performance you can purchase our “Tru-Power” Headers and XXX Air Cleaner to truly complement the power that your new “Tru-Power” Slip-Ons provide. DISCLAIMER: This aftermarket exhaust system is designed to replace a stock exhaust system on a motorcycle with its engine, frame, and other components in their stock design configuration and location.

INSTALLATION 1. Remove the seat. 2. See Figure 1. Loosen the two socket head screws on the instrument panel console. Raise the console enough to access the two pushnuts holding the upper end of the leather insert. Remove and discard the pushnuts using pliers or a blade-type screwdriver. 3. Remove and discard the phillips head screw (3) and washer (4) securing the lower portion of the leather insert to the fuel tank. Remove the leather insert and discard it. 4. Obtain the dash panel extension (1) and the dash panel extension trim (2) from kit. Place the dash panel extension on the dash panel extension trim making sure the panel is centered and fits cleanly into the lips on both sides of the trim. 5. Gently lift up on the rear of the instrument panel console and install the dash panel extension with the rubber dash panel extension trim underneath, butting the two together. Make sure the rubber dash panel extension trim is aligned with the dash panel extension. Finger tighten the two socket head screws to hold down the instrument panel temporarily in place. NOTE The console rubber trim from a stock vehicle may need to be trimmed slightly to assure proper fit. NOTE When performing the next step, note that proper alignment is achieved when space is eliminated between the instrument panel console and/or between the dash panel extension trim piece and the fuel tank. Due to variances in fuel tank and instrument panel console fitments, the foam pads are used on “as needed” basis to achieve proper alignment. It may be necessary to experiment a few times using various combinations of pads to achieve the desired alignment. In some cases, pads may not be necessary while in others, it may be necessary to use all with one stacked above another. 6. Observe the overall fitment of the panels over the tank and determine whether the foam pads will be necessary to achieve the desired alignment. 7. If necessary, remove the dash panel extension assembly. Peel the adhesive backing and install the needed foam pads (5) to the raised areas extending from the front of the dash panel extension as shown. Re-install the panel. 8. When the proper alignment between the new kit and the fuel tank is achieved, tighten the rear mounting screw (3) with the washer (4) to the speed nut located on the tab at the rear of the fuel tank. 9. Tighten to 18-24 in-lbs (2.0-2.7 Nm). 10. Tighten the instrument panel console?s two socket head screws to 18-24 in-lbs (2.0-2.7 Nm). 11. Install the seat

INSTALLATION 1. Remove all articles from inside, then thoroughly wash and dry the saddlebag lid. 2. Close the saddlebag lid. Cut a piece of masking tape at least 10 inches (25 cm) long and lay it lengthwise down the center of the top outer surface of the lid starting at the front. Mark a line lengthwise down the tape, measuring an equal distance from each side so the line is centered on the lid. 3. Obtain the template (7) from the kit, and position it on the line, with the short leg held against the front surface of the lid. Carefully mark the tape at the two arrows, then remove the template and set it aside. 4. At each of the marks made in Step 3, carefully drill a 1/8 inch (3 mm) diameter pilot hole. 5. Using the pilot holes drilled in Step 4, use a 9/32 inch (7 mm) diameter bit to finish drilling the holes for the trim piece. NOTES Before installing the lid trim, test fit to ensure adequate clearance of both mounting pads through the drilled holes in the saddlebag lid. The trim pieces are side-specific; the front legs are angled to match the lid front. If the pads do not fit loosely in the holes, it may be necessary to slightly enlarge the holes to provide clearance and maintain proper alignment of the trim on the lid. Clean the saddlebag lid inside and out, and the inside of the saddlebag with a soft cloth, making sure to remove any shavings left from drilling. 6. Obtain the correct saddlebag lid trim (1 or 2) and a trim gasket (3) from the kit. Peel the liner from the adhesive backing of the gasket. 7. Position the gasket onto the bottom surface of the trim, making sure the gasket remains inside the outer edges of the trim, and smooth it into place. 8. Obtain a pan head screw (6) from the kit. 9. Using a T25 TORX® drive head, start the screw part way into one of the holes on the underside of the trim, to form a few threads in the hole, then back the screw out of the hole. Repeat for the second hole. 10. Install the trim piece onto the lid, fitting the mounting pads into the holes drilled in Step 5. 11. Place a flat washer (5) from the kit onto the threads of the screw (6), followed by a rubber washer (4). Place two drops of Loctite® 243 (blue) onto the screw threads. 12. While supporting the lid trim in place, open the saddlebag lid and install the washers and screw through the lid into one of the trim mounting pads, finger tight. Repeat for the remaining trim mounting pad, with another screw, flat washer and rubber washer. 13. Apply a small amount of pressure to the trim piece above each screw and continue to tighten both screws to 25-28 in-lbs (2.8-3.2 Nm) . 14. Repeat steps 1 through 13 for the opposite saddlebag lid

Tightening Torque Incorrect torque applied to a bolt, nut, or screw may lead to serious damage. Tighten fasteners to the specified torque using a good quality torque wrench. Often, the tightening sequence is followed twice-initial tightening and final tightening with torque wrench. Force Use commonsense during disassembly and assembly, excessive force can cause expensive or hard to repair damage. When necessary, remove screws that have anon -permanent locking agent applied using an impact driver. Use aplastic-faced mallet whenever tapping is necessary. Gasket, O-ring Hardening, shrinkage, or damage of both gaskets andO-rings after disassembly can reduce sealing performance. Remove old gaskets and clean the sealing surfaces thoroughly so that no gasket material or other material remains. Install new gaskets and replace used O-ringswhenre-assembling Liquid Gasket, Non-permanent Locking Agent For applications that require Liquid Gasket ora Non-permanent Locking agent, clean the surfaces so that no oil residue remains before applying liquid gasket or Non-permanent locking agent. Do not apply them excessively. Excessive application can clog oil passages and cause serious damage. Press For items such as bearings or oil seals that must be pressed into place, apply small amount of oil to the contact area. Be sure to maintain proper alignment and use smooth movements when installing
