Remus Exhaust Help

I recently purchased the Remus headers and exhaust and had them ceramic coated. I am finding now that the pieces and parts of the header were not labeled after the ceramic coating. I cannot tell where each pipe goes to which port. Can anyone provide assistance with a picture or otherwise that will explain how the pipes go together?

I often thought about this back when I was going to buy a used set of headers. Other than finding a picture or a technical drawing (which Im sure if you contacted Remus, they could provide one), I would think you would have to set the headers in place and while leaving the muffler and inlet pipe in their mounts, fit the header pipes in until you get them all to line up with muffler pipe. I would bet the spring hangers may assist with figuring out where they terminate. GL!

Found a picture that aided in setting up the pipes in the correct order. At least I think so as they seem to fit OK. Once i figured that out the entire process was quite simple. Anticipation of that first startup and hearing the growl as it idled was awesome. Couldn't be happier. The pipes with the ceramic coating and the new mufflers are very attractive and compact compared to the original behemoths. I will run again this evening and then check torque's again, then back to riding!

I had difficulty installing mine, by myself on my previous bike and learned that a light coating of grease on each crush washer held it (all of them) in place while I maneuvered the manifold into place.
