You can get the original headers off and on with the radiator moved but still plumbed up.
I needed a short hex drive with a spanner on it and various other extensions in 1/8 drive to do so.
But i will always avoid undoing a radiator hose if i can.
I ended up leaving the rad on while installing the arrow headers. It was doable, but definitely a pain. You can't get to the cylinder head bolts straight on anyways with the new headers, have to go from below.
I removed and reinstalled my headers fairly easy by just removing the radiator bolts and moving it out of the way leaving the hoses connected.
I never used a torque wrench though and just done them up firm, when I removed the bolts originally they were different in their torque settings , guessing they move with the running in of the bike.
I used bunji cord attached to the handle bars to hang the radiator. I also used another cord to pull it as far toward the front of the bike as possible to give me as much space as possible. (More space than if you let it hang straight down). Dont forget to through a towel or something over the radiator.....Those radiator fins are delicate and super easy to bend.....Always be aware of where your headers are relative to the radiator during installation/removal or you will almost certainly bump and bend those things
After doing the Dominator decat pipe I am now looking at some end cans that are not the long "sticky-out-the-back" type that have or can utilise the heatshield/cover or provide one. Just wondering what people are using and if any pictures of what you are running.
Looking into options on how to decat my bike and torn between new headers or a simple de-cat pipe. the bike is not going to be tuned any more than decat and lose the first muffler, a woolwich ECU flash plus K&N air filter and 16t front sprocket. Keeping the stock tailpipe.
