if you have a good set of tools you do not need to remove any cooling lines at all, but if you dont then you should remove all of the items in the post a few before this one. I removed both mids and the belly pan, then i removed all the bolts holding the radiator, then i used zip ties (heavy duty ones) and held the radiator as far forward as possible. if you can use an air ratchet, extension and a good swivel to remove the nuts holding the header on. you just have to be gentle and avoid bending the radiator fins thats the hardest part. i hope that helps.
Update, I talked to the place that I take all my bikes, and they said that they would do the exhaust install for 75.00, looks like I am not going to have to worry about doing it myself. I think that is a fair price what do you guys think.
why are you hesitant to install yourself? I think the general concensus on this is that it is not hard to do.
You just have to remove a couple of fairings, unbolt the radiator and zip-tie it out of the way, remove the old headers and exhaust, then bolt up the new stuff.
Even if you don't have much experience working on bikes, there's no time like the present to learn... saves you a lot of money in labor, and if you're like me, gives you a sense of satisfaction.... if you run into any problems, or have any questions along the way, there are plenty of people on here to give you prompt help
i agree....you also know it will be done correctly....the exhaust is simple and should take few hours....plus lets you get to know your bike...from the sound of it (without being an ass) you sound like you just ride your bike...you can do this...
Bust a knuckle or two. Blood makes the bike faster. Gar-un-teed!! It's very straight forward. Just don't strip the threads or damage the radiator. You'll be more carefull with you're bike than any shop mechanic.
Good day gents

I was just wondering if anyone has used a turbo kit for an '06 zx10 and how hard is it to install. Will I have to have it professionally done or can I bolt it on myself. Really appreciate any feedback.
Hello guyZ, I want to turbo an 2006-2007 ZX10R engine for the beginning using custim rods and pistons but the stock crank but i dont know how much hp the stock crank can take. I want to run about 280-300 Hp( flywheel) in the begining. Would it hold up? It will be build for race use only so it...
