    Is rear exhaust even possible???

    Anyone else try to install rear exhaust on their GP1800 and have a total b***h of a time getting the hose-clamps on? Ive done at least 5 rear exhaust installs in the past and this one takes the cake. Anyone have any tips? I need a small child to crawl in there and tighten it up.

    just put the factory outlet delete plate on last, and put your hand through there to tighten those clamps. its still a tight fit but wayyyy better than trying to go in through the top.

    That is a damn good idea. Up until then, all I've ever heard is that you have to bribe a kid to crawl down in the hull lol

    Got it installed and it sounds awesome! Thanks for the help. Ended up having my sister put her arm through the stock exhaust outlet to tighten the clamp. Took her probably 30 seconds after I was trying for about three hours...
