Versys Hepco C-Bow Installed Today - Nice!

Could not be happier with the look and quality, all installed today. Of note, the instructions are not 100% accurate and one mount was labelled for the left side and was actually for the right. Also, several extra washers, bolts, that I believe are for if you have the rear tail mount as well as is referenced in the 'bolt A goes here and bolt B goes here'. Totally recommend.

Is perfect for me. I have the DB in and very much like the sound. Have been on 3 hour rides and not bothersome. The quality of the Yoshimura is worth the extra pesos.

Thanks. Was an interesting process, rim size, tire size, raising the front fender (making brackets), etc. But very happy with the new handling character and a bit more fire road ready. A clean bike is a happy bike :)

I want it for the extra clearance under the bike. Thats why i am looking at the yoshi.

good looking silencer, but is there a measurable difference in actual ground clearance with this exhaust system?

Yes, a few extra inches directly under the bike but think it averages almost the same where the Yoshi exits on the right side.

Also more room between the muffler and rear tire. the whole system is tucked more, and compact under the bike compared to stock.
