OK, I'll be pedantic. That 690 isn't exactly a dirt bike either. It's a great and a damn capable dual sport. But in my mind a dirt bike is another 50+ lb lighter, which gets you even more off-road...

Correct.

You can still put a GS or MM exhaust on the HP2, but you'll need a 3" longer hanging bracket. A strip of steel, carbon fiber, etc. with two holes drilled in it will do the trick.

I wonder if you have the U-shaped rubber spacers that fit to the top of the frame in place correctly. Those can rotate around a bit if the zipties aren't tight.
