Pipe clearance on an '01 929RE
I just installed an Arata system, but I'm not quite sure if the pipe is curved properly.
I bought the system used.
After installation, there is only about 2mm of clearance Between the mid pipe and the right lower fairing (it used to be touching until I tweaked it a bit more).
I'm worried that the heat will discolour the plastics really fast, so I'm hoping someone out there has the same exhaust and can help me out.
I've tried twisting the pipe to get more clearance, but that's about all I can get without figuring out a way to shorten the mount to the passenger foot peg.
I'm using the stock passenger foot peg as the mountain point.
I may go ahead try to reverse the mid-pipe, but I don't think it is designed to be reversible. I also can visualize the spring hooks lining up properly.
(This is all just visualization, since I hoping to avoid having to take off that cowling again).
How much clearance do other '00/'01 fireblades have at this spot?
I'll update with a picture later when I get my camera charged.
