How do you install these? I might be buying a 250R Ninja soon thats 100% stock and was thinking of only adding a slip on Yoshimura muffler in carbon but how do these generally 'go on'? Thanks :D

Go to your local bike mechanic/dealer. They should be able to do it for you.

Are you buying the 250R brand new or second hand?

Video should stop after the step where it tells you to take the old muffler off. All steps instructing you to put a muffler back on should be ignored.

Care to explain why?

Because it'd be irrelevant in the case of putting a new slip-on on the 250r

its because you dont need an exhaust, it will sounds crazy without one

Thats what I thought he meant too lol! I saw a youtube vid of a Ninja 250R with a Harley (Yeah, Harley Davidson) exhaust on it. Sounded pathetic though :( REALLY annoying sound .. just not right at all.

imo, most 250's with a slip-on could use a tune.
they just seem like there tired otherwise

Seems pretty straight forward.

It'll be a lot safer than your stock muffler (peeps will hear you coming).

Yeah bike exhausts are very easy to do, I've done all mine with basic tools and and ive only set aside a few hours, it's a good opportunity of clean areas that aren't easily accessible too

I might have a used chrome Yoshimura 250R slip on for sale soon, any idea what a good price would be for that? (Think I'll put a carbon one on instead)

If its in good nick, then i guess 70% of its RRP.

Thanks :D Think that'd be about $650 - $700, might try rock it off on ebay and start off at $500, I'll see.
