Thundermax Install

I have a 2007 RG, not mechanically inclined, nor do I know anything about tuning. I bought the ThunderMax for my bike and was wondering if I should install it myself or just take it to the dealership to install it.

If I install it myself, does my bike have O2 sensors? Also, if I plan on upgrading the exhaust, should I just wait until I get the new exhaust?

Its not that hard of an install, read the directions a couple times, then you will have to decide yourself if your willing and/or able to take this on. BUT definitely I would put the new exhaust on 1st, just remember a thundermax used wide band O2 sensors so you need a 09 or before head pipe or you will have to drill and install larger O2 bungs in a newer model head pipe.

You can NOT use a 09 head pipe on a 07 bike. Any 08 and 07 exhaust works on the bike and you should already have 18mm O2 sensors on the 07. You will see the O2 sensors on the head pipes about 6 inches away from the cylinder heads.
The T-max is a easy install.

Don't most pipes now come with 18mm and 12mm bungs?

Many aftermarket exhaust head pipes come with 12mm and 18mm O2 bungs.
Your 07 should have 18mm O2 bungs.
