The investigation of light hypernuclei is quite important for understanding the basic YN interaction and the mechanism of hypernuclear structure. We started the commissioning of the decay pion spectroscopy of light hypernuclei at MAMI-C in 2011. In order to realize the K+ tagging efficiently, some detectors on KAOS spectrometer were upgraded or newly installed. The existing and well-studied spectrometers, SpekA, SpekC were used as pion spectrometers. The analysis is ongoing to estimate the detectors performance and develop the spectrometers for future experiments with higher beam intensity. The preliminary results of the particle identification are presented in this article.
