Even though I'm not particularly mechanically minded, nor do I own many tools I decided to take the plunge and fit this myself this morning! Having read the other reviews I thought, how difficult can it possibly be???!!!!
2 hrs later, job done!!!! Ok, took me a while but I got there in the end! I have to agree with one of the other reviews that the small bracket thingy which you thread on the jubilee clip just doesnt fit right and makes it difficult to guarantee a secure hold for the cone, which again as mentioned by another review, you have to tighten the jubilee clip up good and proper otherwise it will have a tendency to fall off! Finally I too had to cut out a small piece of the heat shield to allow for my strut brace, small task but made exceedingly difficult with a 20yr old blunt hacksaw!!!!
Other than those few set backs the task of fitting was pretty much straight forward and self explanatory. Worth the effort as throttle response instantly improved and the engine growl has matured from a pussy cat to a roaring lion! if you havnt got one of these kits then grab one as Pipercross never fail to deliver.
Given 4 stars only because it took me 2hrs to fit and this is my way of compensating for my mechanical incompetence!!!!!
