I bought the Arrow CF high mount exhaust pipes for my 2001 M900S. I'm a real newb, but I was told that the installation would be easy. I've gone through the boards and I can't find mention of any installation problems. However, I can't figure out how to get the "brake oil reservoir" out of the way, and installed somewhere else back on the frame. Helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

i thought the arrow pipes came with a relocation bracket for the reservoir on the 2v bikes? it was just a little bitty piece of stainless steel that was s-shaped, had holes in either end, with a bolt and nut. you either mounted it to the bracket that goes under the rear sets and attaches before the pipe bend or in place of the stock position. i'll dig up my mounting instructions to confirm and let you know.

my frame is different but i have the arrow pipes with aftermarket rearsets on my s4 and i just bought some longer length of hose so i could leave the reservoir in the stock position (different from yours i believe).

i still remember a relocation bracket for the reservoir coming with the pipes though.

Thanks Mark.

I spoke w/ the guy from the store and he thinks the part that's blocking me is a California emissions cannister. I've looked through the photo's of the DML members' bikes and I can't find one with the same piece of equipment. So I assume that it's not an essential piece.

He suggested that I simply remove it. The only problem I have now is that it has two tubes going in and only one going out. I'll go and work on it.

yep... ditch the canister. you can either leave the single hose and tie wrap it to the other drain tube... or t that drain tube into the other. as to the two other lines, follow them to the intake manifolds... either plug the both intake manifolds with a 5mm screw (i believe that's the correct size) or cover them with a set of vacuum caps found at any auto store(thinking 3/8" but not 100%) and secure vacuum caps with small hose clamps (stainless if available). i'd ditched that stuff before the pipes even showed up so didn't give it a thought before you mentioned it.
