So finally posting this , was having lots of popping and backfiring, which I shouldn’t have since I’ve blocked the Ais and Ivan’s flash. I discovered that my pipes were olnly held on by the 2 Allen head bolts in the rear manifold. All the rest of the nuts and bolts were gone ! 8 of 10 nuts/bolts vibrated off or somebody stole them, either way they were gone. I had to order a new install kit from VH because dog bones were gone too. I reassembled using stainless wedge washers and compressed lock nut. It’s never coming off again (I hope),

Re-torque after 50 miles but don't put the exhaust on so that it will never come off again. The exhaust has to come off for so many things.
