Pulling the pipe is a PITA, but it does come out. I pulled the can first - I can say the can is the WORST to remove.

I already had the can out. I'll get back at the whole thing again next weekend. It's a bitch being that the loops (where springs attach) on the end of pipe stick up (out) & can't get through, out. Maybe my loops are just welded on in a different angle making it wider....??

I have a 850 for service in the shop today. I will report back on the finding as we pull every ex. valve here. to inspect and clean. so the muffler and pipe has to come out. I've had my pipe out of my xc 129 850 and don't remember having any problem at all? but i do this everyday now until spring. so it just gets routine for me.

My 2019 850 Shop Manual has a detailed explanation of how to remove the entire exhaust system. Page 3.126.

There is no mention of any problem.

DTR has removed it many times. dunno:

Like I said, I believe that mine (& others) have the springs loops (that are welded on pipe) in a different (incorrect) position, making it wider & HARD to get through the opening to totally remove.
I do need to get a long spring puller but have always used the boot string method. Easy to carry with you.

I have no trouble getting springs off.....silencer is removed....have removed the pipe from my other 800's without issue....some wiggling...yes....but was always able to get it out.

My 850 with silener removed...as spoken above..the spring loops on pipe hit the cross member no matter which direction you lean the pipe over. I carved the shit out of my heat foam in the nose piece in an attempt to angle the thing out but no luck. Seems like airbox and steering post in the way.

If the top spring retaining loops werent' there...the pipe would wiggle out.

Like I said....no issue with my 2015, 16, 17, or 18 800 ho's getting the pipes assembly out.

The 850 is not coming out with out some grindage.
