Exhaust fit


Recommended Posts

the improved overlap (pic).

Just also noticed on the other side that the decent quality, Agostini supplied exhaust clamp now gets in the way of the kick stand armature that extends out and keeps it from banging against the (stock) exhaust.  didn't notice till just now.... odd.  doesn't really hurt anything that i can see, and is barely noticeable, but seems like an odd thing given the source of the crossover.  rolling the clamp down and in won't work as the end of the tightening bolt hits the case/oil-pan.

You could remove the header pipes and clean up the old overlap area with some fine emery cloth to remove the old overlap mark. The exhaust heat will pretty quickly bring the colour back to match whats on the pipe now and it won't be noticeable at all. The clamp usually look better fitted one or two mm back from the crossover end as well. From memory you need to clock the other side clamp to clear the side stand stop assembly.

Have you ever considered one of these?

the guzzitech toe lever looks good.  i have the lowered control pegs that the PO installed, and i'm fond of them based on my body dimensions, but i think the toe levers would still bolt on.

i didn't slide the clamps back the couple millimeters, thinking that exposing the lengthwise cuts in the pipe wouldn't look as good, but i'll give it a try.
