Carbon fiber Akrapovic slip on and mid pipe install

I just got a akrapovic and mid pipe from ebay the carbon slip on and mid pipe for 530 shipped it was slightly used. the only problem i ran into was there was a o2 sensor hole in the mid pipe which i dont need, so im just gonna plug it up with bolt non welding. I think thats the best way to do, any else have any other suggestions.

i do have to admit this board has been very helpful since i got my bike i appreciate all the info and tips i am getting. those wires that went from the stock exhaust to under the seat were fun lol, but you guys made it easy on here just searched and found a thread how to remove without throwing a code. thanx again and ill post some pics when i finish the install

i just got done with the mid pipe and slip on install and what a pain it has been. one of the exhuast clamps broke and the other one sucks. there is a decent amount of exhuast leak from mid pipe to slip on i guess i will have to use some copper rtv or does anyone else have any suggestions

Hopefully you used the stock gasket when adding your slip on but you can use some silcone to help seal it up

Push the clamp as far to the back of the bike as you can and seal it up with a layer of copper gasket
