    really all you will need is a set of metric allen wrenches and a set of open end/closed end wrenches (again metric). metric sockets would be nicer, but to get by, you can use the wrenches. if you are just starting out collecting tools, go to a harbor freight. they are cheap, but will last awhile

          Yup, basic Metric Allen wrenches and a socket set. No special tools needed to remove and install the exhaust

                      I always used to buy cheapass tools. Then one day I got a great deal on a good brand (not the best, but actually good quality) and have never looked back. Far less rounded heads, and I can actually get bolts undone that previously I couldn't.

                      What I'm saying is, if you can afford:
                      1. Turd brand 500 piece socket set metric and imperial
                      2. Good brand 8-25mm socket set metric only
                      then get number 2. That and a set of metric allen keys will do the job you need to do now, and when you need more tools later on, buy more then. Crap tools suck.

                      Without sockets I think you might have trouble undoing some of the stuff that holds the cans on Hangers or heel guards or something... one of them need a socket to get in there and was real tight on mine.

                        $30 might buy you an inexpensive set of wrenches, but you get what you pay for. when you round the head of a bolt off with your new cheap tools or wish it were just a little bit longer so you could get some more leverage on it or it the open end of the wrench breaks off........i could go on and on.......you get what you pay for.

                        i'm not saying go out and buy a big tool box and fill it with Snap-On, Mac, and Matco tools (like i did), but deffinately get craftsman at the least. they have a life time warranty on all there stuff. if you are selective you could spend about $150 and get some wrenches, sockets and ratches, screwdrivers, and a T-handle set.

                        you are working on a $10k toy that you love very much and installing a $800 exhaust system that you wanted real, real bad. don't skimp on the tools to get the job done right........please

                          crap Miles........you beat me to it

                          another good point Miles had was you will need duplicate tools of the same size.......like a 12mm socket and 12mm wrench to get the stock cans off.
