help with fitting akrapovic exhaust to my R6

hi everyone,
just trying to fit my akrapovic exhaust onto my 03 R6, anyone got any ideas?!!
Got the standard exhaust off but when fitting the new “Link Pipe” to the exhaust manifold of the bike it seems flush with the manifold to fit!? Im expecting to see some sort of lip so the manifold fits into this lip then using the clip you tighten it up?
Thanks!, beer tokens available!

dosnt the new link pipe slide over (or into) collector box then attatch with a spring clip?..cant remember for the life of me how my R6 one connected so just guesseing here

if not, where abouts are you as someone maybe close by to give it a look :wink:
