    The guy in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoPVW6P8IBI) agrees with you that the instructions suck bass (minus the "b").
    It's only a video on how it sounds, but he offers anyone to hit him up if they need help with the install instructions.

    There is really nothing to it.
    The black bracket you show in post #2 bolts to the frame of the bike and the muffler part of the exhaust bolts to this bracket.

    So 2 bolts hold the black bracket to the frame.

    2 bolts hold the muffler to the bracket. (There should also be 2 nuts welded to a piece of sheet metal which slides behind the mount on the muffler so you have something to run the bolts into.

    and of course each pipe has 2 bolts where they connect to the heads.

    Be sure to chase the threads on the heads with a bottoming tap and use new bolts (torqued properly) to hold the pipes to the heads.

    Easiest way to install the VPR is to get it all put together but don't tighten anything up tight until you have it all fitted together properly. Then start forward's and work your way back torquing everything down while making sure it all lines up correctly as you go.

    I have to pull my exhaust off and reinstall it tomorrow night. (My wide band O2 sensor when out)

    So if you don't have it together by tomorrow night post up and I can make a video for you.

    It is really simple though, I am sure you will figure it out.

    Thank you for the feed back guys ! I'm off to work, so I'll have a go at it tonight after work. I figured out the heat shield bracket. It's more or less the pictured bracket on where it mounts too...I'll follow up later.

    So the short bolts hold bracket to frame.. the the longer bolts go through both brackets into the sheetmetal bolts...this holding the heat shield bracket and exhaust to the frame bracket ? Lol not exactly a mechanic here. ( sitting here at work mentally going over it)

    Yup, that's my video lol. The bracket had me so confused and the instructions were all but useless.... if you haven't figured it out let me know. I'm sure BCS gave all the info needed.
    Like BCS said, you have to put it together loosely before putting random parts on one at a time. The bolt to one of the brackets will be blocked if you try get access while its mounted to the frame. Theses one video that barely shows how the bracket should sit. I used that to help figure it out. I'll see if I can find it.
    I really wish I would have documented all the stuff I installed to help others out... oh well.

    No matter how tight I make those I still feel a bit of air leaking out at the connection point. Stick your hand back there and see if you feel any air at idle

    Oh and by the way, not sure how OCD you are, but that chrome ring drove me crazy. The tip comes off with 3 Allen bolts and the ring slides off if you ever want to paint it like I did.

    Looks good. Mine doesn't touch. Did you reuse stock bolts on the heat shield? Which heat shield are you referring too? The one above the muffler?

    Is this the heat shield you're talking about?

    Yes that is the one I'm talking about... maybe I'll just bend the bracket a little. I used stock bolts on the first bracket and the supplied bolts with washer and lock on the shield bracket to the exhaust

    Also is there a way to fix scratches/ marks on the engine casing ??.

    Nothing should be touching the engine case.

    If you are talking about the hose clamps that connect the pipes to the muffler.......the top one needs to be put on where it can be tightened from the side between the 2 pipes.
    And the bottom one needs to be put on so it can be tightened from below. This way neither one will touch your engine case.

    Just want to thank everyone who took the time to help me out. psycho1000r, that short video clip really helped a lot, thank you. After work tonight I'll adjust the straps so they don't touch the case. I'm a little pissed at my self because I marked up the paint on the top portion of the pipe going to the engine. ( When I was putting the bolt in ) otherwise I'm happy with every thing.

    I can definitely agree with you on that Loki. I have the same exhaust, but mine is two-tone chrome headers with a black ceramic coated muffler and chrome end cap ring. The first time I heard my Crushed Chrome 9 with that exhaust I was more than happy and pleased with the sound.

    Yeh after seeing the video I was amazed at how I didn't figure it out lol. I also nicked my casing during install so dont feel bad.
    Like BCS Said, the clamps should be set up so you can access them easily . .i'll see if I have a close up pic.

    This is how it should look. One screwhead facing out between both pipes. Then the one below. You can see where I marred the pipe a bit incorrectly attaching them the first time 🤬

    Yes, there’s actually even a notch right there in the heat shield to allow for easier access to that top bolt between the two header pipes.

    Hey guys, I know this post has been out for awhile but just got back from my deployment and opened up my box with the new exhaust and I believe mine is missing the two longer bolts. The two 3/4” bolts were in the bag with the other hardware but no 1” bolts. Were all four bolts in your bags?

    That exhaust looks awesome Loki. When shopping for mine I was interested in this or the radius. Went with the radius only because I never saw another 9 in my area with a velocity pro short in order to hear it... still haven't. I wonder how different the two sound. Good to see you got the install sorted out

    I am considering the Velocity Pro exhaust. I have a 2013 Nine and wonder if there are modifications that I need to do as far as sensors, wiring, etc.?

    Thanks
