hey guys, my friend gave me a hotbodies slashcut slipon the other day and i was wondering if it was worth it to put it on. I mean will it make a difference in the sound and does it hurt anything to detach the exup cables and just zip tie them out of the way? Thanks Rob

I took my stock slip on off, and zip tied the cables (temporarily) out of the way till i find time to remove em.

It is louder, which is what i wanted, performance is pretty much the same however.

I have the hotbodies slashcut exhaust and IMO it is not a very loud pipe. D&D, yoshi, akra, etc... are all louder. It is louder than stock but I primarily like it because it has more of a racier sound compared to other pipes. As for the EXUP cables, mine are zipped tied and I have had no problems.

I removed the cables completly today at work. It is a lot easier than i thought. The motor for the cables is actually right next to the rear shock. Just take off the 2 12mm nuts and pull the motor out of the way a little, reach your hand in and undo the cables. Then just bolt the motor back down, and keep it plugged in. I tried just removing the whole motor assembly with the cables, but it throws a code.

Zip tied cables just look like ass IMO. Do it right or leave it alone.

Yeh bro, ill try to take pics of it tomorrow. If you want you can also pm me and remind me tomorrow, Sometimes I have a short term memory loss, lol..

Ill try to do a little writeup on it.

Ive also drilled out the butterfly in the stock slip-on, then hammered out the pin that goes through it, then finally epoxy'd up the holes. It looks like oem with the cover on, and you will have a 100% eliminated EXUP.

Hey if you do a search on here you can find a step by step procedure for that. Just look under exhaust removal.
