From Samson's website...

• Remove stock head pipes, mufflers and Stock Mounting
Bracket. Save and reuse the stock bolts from the mounting
bracket for the new system.


It doesn't say anything about reusing stock exhaust flanges.

1. Loosely install front and rear heat shields on head pipes using
the #24 hose clamps provided. Do not fully tighten at this time.
2. Install the mounting bracket on the frame, using the stock
bracket mounting bolts. The long end of the bracket will point
toward the rear of the bike.
3. Loosely attach the rear pipe to the rear exhaust port using the
stock nuts and washers. Follow this same mounting procedure for
the front pipe.
4. Using a Barrel clamp attach the mufflers to the ends of the head
pipes. If baffles are to be used, install the baffles before attaching
the muffler assembly. While sliding the mufflers on to the end of
the head pipe, be sure that the lower Carriage bolt in the mounting
bracket slides into the pipe’s channel bracket.
5. Tighten each bolt a little at a time starting at the flanges and
work to the back. Tighten at each point moving from the front pipe
to the back, and back to front for a proper fit and alignment. Check
alignment often to insure proper fit. Make certain that brake
pedal has free play, adjust exhaust alignment as needed to clear
front pipe heat shield.

Looks pretty straight forward to me...Maybe they sent you a set without the flanges like california said.

Yeah, this looked like a pretty straightforward install to me too so that is why I am confused. What you are seeing is the rear head pipe with heat shield as I received it.

Ok, there is NO flange on that sucker. Nice. I would call Samson, or whoever you bought them from cause that isn't going to work.

I see Samson still sucks. I would recommend you return them to the retailer and not Sampson. So if you have any future issues with the replacements, they will not say these are not the pipes we sent out to you.

Ugh...I have emails into Samson and the retailer. Hopefully they will stand behind their product and fix it.

If you received the bulldawgs 210-801, then this should be your parts list:
PARTS LIST:
Qty. Description
1ea. SP06-105 Mounting Bracket
2ea. 27-61m Barrel clamp
2ea 5/16-18 x 3/4 carraige bolts
2ea 5/16 flat washers
2ea. 5/16 Nylock nut
2ea 1/4-20 x 3/8 button head bolt
2ea 10-32 x 3/8 button head bolt
6ea. # 24 Hose Clamp
2ea SP04- 3”baffles
2ea Samson end caps

2ea yamaha flange

It sounds like they left out the two yamaha flanges. Go back to the packaging and take it all apart. Look under flaps in the box unfold every paper... Then call them and get your flanges on their way:
Tech Line (714) 518-2480

This is a link to the flanges that you should have received:

The Jug Huggers I had also had no flanges fitted.
They came with the pipes though.
They had to be slipped over the ends and were retained with a spring clip
similar to the ring that you wind your keys onto on your key fob. (Hope that makes sense!)
Maybe they are missing from the kit (?).

So I finally got the flanges sent to me, I got the pipes mounted and I love the sound. The fit and finish are not what I would expect for pipes that cost this much but I am tired of dealing with Samson and the company I bought them from so they are mine. Huge improvement over the stock set up. Did the AIS block off at the same time as install. Thanks to everyone for the input on this thread, love this forum!
