Precautions Precautions for Exhaust System ! WARNING To avoid the danger of being burned, do not touch the exhaust system when the system is hot. Any service on the exhaust system should be performed when the system is cool. Make sure that the exhaust pipe and muffler have enough clearance from the rubber parts and plastic parts to avoid melting. After installing the exhaust pipe and muffler, check the exhaust pipe connection and muffler connection for exhaust gas leakage.
