I think you need to remove the front header pipe.

I do know that MANY have said the bar is a PIA to install and that the holes don't always line up well. A length of pipe to use as a pry bar and the help of another might be needed...

But, you could be lucky....

Just looking at pictures of it I'm not sure how you could do it without at least removing the front pipe. Good luck! And post your experience for future users.

Ditto

I also have installed one and besides the right exhaust, also found it easier to remove the brake and shifter levers. Most instructions swore this wasn't necessary but for some reason mine would not go on otherwise. It really wasn't too painful though. Took me all of about an hour start to finish and I have enjoyed it ever since.
