Yoshimura RS-5 insert/baffle - what am I missing?

So I put a full Yoshi RS5 system (race version) on both my '08s. They came with this insert to reduce the sound and it looks like it should just slip right in and lock in with a screw. It doesn't just slip in. I started to pound it in with a rubber mallet and the ring went about a quarter of the way in when I realized "how will I get it back out when I go to the track?" So I stopped pounding it in and tried to get it back out. I finally got it out by threading the screw into the ring from the inside, wrapping a heavy piece of wire around the screw, made a loop and started yanking on the loop with a 12 pound sledge and it finally popped back out. I gotta thing I'm doing something wrong. The instructions don't make any sense to me. Here are the 4 steps listed in the instructions:

1. Remove muffler from tailpipe
2. Insert the front insert into the tailpipe.
3. Reinstall the muffler.
4. Insert the rear insert into the end of the muffler and secure using the small allen head bolt.

Here's a picture of the insert and the instructions I found on the Internet:

Yoshimura Low Volume Insert Kit, RS5/RS8 (INS-09-K) - MotoWiki



And yes, I took the screw out before trying to insert it. I *think* it might be a very tight fit on purpose but I don't want to screw it up. I guess I'll just leave it out but I like being as quiet as possible on the street. I don't want people hearing what I am doing.

TDH, something to think about, is it possible you need to remove the end cap to install the baffle? I have seen that in previous versions of the RS-5.

I actually thought about that but the picture makes it look like it should slip right in the back and it seems to be that simple. The instructions are extremely poorly worded if that is the case.

Yeah I saw that but it's a different type. I'll see what Yoshi has to say. They got right back to me on my last question.

Are you putting it in from the engine side (front)? Because that's clearly what it's saying. Is the main body of the insert the "front insert" then the dark ring goes on the outside once it's all the way through? In which case it's unfair to call the rear insert an insert. It's more of a cap.

The black cap end (rear) of the tube probably tapers down, because the rear exit of the muffler probably tapers down. Which would explain why it wasn't going in. Try taking off the exhaust can and slipping the tube in (minus the black part), angled end first. Make sense?

Clearly that's what you would think by looking at the instructions but it's clear when looking at the muffler that's not going to happen. Here's a picture of the muffler. It still has a pipe in it in the picture but I took that pipe out and there is no way that insert is going in from that direction because if the angle, even without the ring on it. I think it's just a tight fit. The problem with that is I think the only way I would ever get it back out is to drill the rivets and remove the end cap and punch the ring back out from behind.

In fact maybe that's the only way to put it in as 06ZX636R suggested. Maybe it only fits in from behind the end cap. If that's the case they need to update the instructions to make it a little more clear.

That's exactly what I was thinking.

I'm so jealous of that exhaust, btw. So pretty.

Just weird. Are you using this for track? Couldn't you just keep the stock can, or would it not mate up to mid pipe properly?

There is a free flow baffle in there now. Remove the rubber plug under exhaust tip to gain access to the screw. Remove screw and remove track baffle. Install restricted baffle in its place. Loctite and replace screw.
