    who has fitted 300 EX filter to a 260?

    I am trying to find out, if anyone has fit a 300 EX filter to a 260.
    Is it only a matter of sliding the W/B back the thinkness of the filter??
    The W/B can easily slide back 15mm or so before it hits the plastic tray and stops.


    how thick is the filter??

    I didn't know about the the sliding back the water box thing so I unbolted the exhaust body to remove it, Once I checked it and and was putting it back together I snapped off a bolt into the exhaust manifold even when I was using a brand new torque wrench. I then had to remove the exhaust manifold to get the bolt out and when I put it back together I put it on a hose and filled the cylinders with water. I CHALLENGE ANYONE TO MAKE A BIGGER MESS OF ANYTHING AS GOOD AS THAT! I tip my hat at the skilled mechanics of the world....

    im not skilled, but it looks like the W/B just slides back. there is 15mm of room for it to go back.

    You can just slide it back for sure. Much easier with the strap removed.

    It's the bolts Kawasaki use. I've stretched a couple of exhaust bolts on the STX-R (stopped before they snapped of course) but they are not the strongest bolts out there.

    I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but I put a tiny bit of marine grease on the thread now. Hopefully this will stop it grabbing??????

    My tip is to torque it up 80% of the total on each bolt and then reset the value and torque slowly to the correct setting. If it turns more than 90-120 degrees the bolt is probably buggered. If you are worried you can remove it and check the thread for any stretch or twisting.

    use antiseize it will also make it easier for next time especially on all manifold bolts.
