It should be rather easy. I got jardines and I had to use the right side header. I had to cut a piece off to make it fit. Be sure to replace the crush exhaust gasket if posible. Look up in the exhaust forum to find the gasket number. Gasket off of the harley fits. If I am wrong someone here will jump in and correct me. Hope this helps.

If you install a set of aftermarket pipes, you will be "degoating" simply because it's removed and done away with when installing an aftermarket set.

VH, Cobras, Jardine pipe kits don't use the goat belly at all.

I confirm: I replaced the mufflers with Cobra, and have to remove the goat belly. The gaskets were included in the Cobra kit. After burning a pair of trousers, I Put back in place the old heat shield...
I also had to put some ceramic wool inside the Cobra, to avoid getting a fine with the noise...

Since the goat's belly is removed you will probably have to fashion a center stand stop so it doesn't slam against your new pipes. Some come with a rubber stop (V&H's ) some don't.
