Fitting new Termis

Just purchased a set of new termis for my 1100 evo and I was wondering how difficult it is to fit,it looks like the slip on cans will be quite easy but not sure how easy it will be to change the ECU and air filter.my other option will be to pay a local dealer $200 to fit it.do it myself or spend the $200?

Slipons are cake, air filter and ecu requires taking off the body panels on the gas tank then lifting the gas tank up, propping it up and swapping the filter and the ecu. Once the gas tank is up it's a simple job. It'll take an hour of your time.

Do NOT pay the dealer $200 to do this!! They already get enough of your money. Its very easy to do this with basic tools and an hour of your time. And yes, I recommend doing this while on your reserve fuel. Do you have a workshop manual?

Doesn't make a big difference. full tank, 3.8 gallons, 23lbs

gas is 6.1lbs a gallon.

Glad you found a deal on a Factory designed kit. In the end it will give you less problems than a bunch of aftermarket accessories from different manufacturers.

Now not only will get a different sound and looks, you will add the performance factor as well.

After you install the kit yourself, you should consider an hour at the local dealer or a good dyno tuner to just double check the exhaust gasses to make sure you aren't running lean. Fuel injection and ECU's are great for being able to sense and make changes to help the bike run well in all situations, but the bike will run much better if the bodies are synched properly and the trims are set for you location as elevation and other factors, as well as the changes you are making, might not be perfectly tuned in your new race ECU.

It probably won't need much, if any tweaking, but after making such a change you'd want to insure that you don't damage your pride and joy right?

The owners manual tells you how to do this. it's not very clear but it does tell you how to remove the gas tank.
