To clarify, I was traveling solo but this is a somewhat popular destination, especially around a holiday when people have time to get away. I knew there would be other traffic on the road if I got myself in too deep (reference to your photo ). By "traffic" I mean that I encountered 3 or 4 4x4s on the 55 miles out.

This is a pretty remote place that can be difficult to get to, and those who pass are usually well-equipped desert adventure enthusiasts willing and eager to help, as I have done for others many times in the past.

I am also very familiar with the route, and was equipped to survive for probably a week if I had to. So, it was a calculated risk.

Pack Rat, taking the stock exhaust off is really not that difficult. It helps to have a soft hammer, something that won't dent the metal. The hardest part of the whole operation is breaking the right side muffler loose from the left side cat and even that is not hard, just be patient. If you have any apprehension at all just ask a friend to help (offer good beer) and you will be surprised at how fast it goes.

Don't forget that the right side muffler is held on by a very small bolt above the muffler, it's easy to miss.

Ok sorry for the size of pics, I assume your talking about the bolt on the left in the pic but what about bar coming out of the wheel well thats welded to the muffler to the right in pic. Do I have to remove the wheel well fender? I do not see a nut on the back side of it..

Pack Rat, that stainless steel rod that is welded to the right muffler is only held in place by the rubber grommet you see..no nut on the other side. Yes, you have found the small bolt that actually holds the muffler to the frame. I'd recommend taking a look at the parts diagram for the bike, that will make it easier to understand. I use the diagram from Max BMW: http://www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com/fic...3&rnd=03252011

pyoungbl has great advice, be patient and having an extra set of hands, would not hurt. The right can comes off first with one bolt and some light tapping from center out. Be careful not to dent the can. It is easy to do, I put a tiny dent in mine. It is much heavier then it looks, so when it gets free be ready. The left can was a little more challenging for me. Where the exhaust comes together under the clamp was very tight and took a few minutes to get it to free up and the rubber grommet that the left can hangs from was stuck in place like it was glued, I gave it a squirt of PB blaster and wiggled it till it freed up. The left can is also heavier then it looks.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Single Exhaust on Sertao

I just ordered the GPR exhaust to replace the stock exhaust. I thought I saw some kind of case that mounts where the stock, right side exhaust used to be but now I can't find it. Has anyone seen this? It's a plastic tube basically the same dimension as the right muffler. Thanks!
