On to the good stuff! New pipes! Some assembly required.



Instead of High Temp RTV silicone for sealing the slip joint, they give you this cool metallic high temp seal goop.



Slide mufflers into the Y pipe.



Attach springs



Remove this bracket from factory pipes



Test fit Arrow cans





Yup, looks good!







Reattach tail while leaving muffler mounts loose



Inspect alignment



Oh yeah, almost forgot. Removed these things too, they SUCK!! Too quiet hehe.

Now, on to the fun wiring project. Power Commander! The Fun Box!

Let's see, box goes here.



Route wires this way



Down by my shock



Under the tank



Lots of room!



Unplug this, plug in that





Dynojet recommends tapping my speedo wire for advanced fuel mapping. Took me 5 minutes to find it, it was hidden in this large rubber boot. Pink wire on white 3 wire plug.



They give you a Posi-Tap to use, not sure if I like it but we will see how it holds up.



Speed wire goes in that hole



Routed here



Then down here

O2 sensor gets unplugged, so rather than have it flopping all over, I zip tied it to this wire so it stays out of the way.



Time to tidy up, the part everyone hates. Zip ties FTW!!



Wires? What wires? I didn't add any wires.





Tidied up the speedo wire and PCV loom







Reinstall side tail pieces



That's a HOT ASS!!!





All done!!



Took about 2 hours. Not too shabby, and it sounds like a beast! Now, if it would stop raining so I can test out the sound and the new map.

Oh yeah, and it needs a bath.

Thanks! I have yet to see or hear of another FZ6 with Arrow cans. Personally, I really like the blue and gold emblem, and they sound really good without being ear piercing loud like a TBR setup.

I'm curious to see what happens after 500 miles or so once they break in. They came with Db Killers, but it sounded like stock exhaust, so off they came.

You should get a video or something of the sound...

If I had a camera that would pick up sound decently I would. I will try a couple different cameras and see how the sound bytes come out. I also didn't want to record the sound in my shop as it's a bit echo-ey. Have to wait for the rain to stop so I can get a true outdoor sound byte.

Hi,

Thanks for the great write-up!

Would you happen to have a better pic of the 6-pin connector of the FZ6? Mine has only 5 wires in it and i'm trying to find out if that's normal... The PC (powercommander) wiringloom has 6 wires in the same connector.

So that's a bit weird and my PC doesn't start up.

Thanks for you answers!

Hi! What year is your FZ6 and which PowerCommander do you have? The older models took a PowerCommander 3 rather than a PowerCommander 5 like I have and so may be different. As a matter of fact, my 2009 is the only one listed on the PowerCommander site as having a PowerCommander 5.

Please provide the above request and I'll help as best I can.
