    That's some fancy English there, but I think I get the gist of what your saying. I'll check to see if it's seated all the way. Thanks to Scott at Renazco , I believe I'm getting some sort dangle that will change the angle of the can....am I right Scott?

    I'd have to concur - <i>within reason</i>, of course. Often, the link pipe isn't as "seated" as one might believe.

    Disclaimer: self-installation pre-supposes that one has the technical capability to overcome any encountered obstacles during the install. When in doubt, STOP and ask for assistance!

    Good deal. I look forward to getting it all put back together.

    Hi-hi..... Your right ... Now that I read it again..... If you want to be sure, measure the seating depth of the lv inlet... Mark same distance on the mid pipe...

    Does anyone know the contact info of the guy who builds the wolfman racks? I know I've seen him on here but can't seem to find him. Thanks

    Does anyone have a rough guess as to how hot the exhaust gets (the can not the header) Its aluminum, by the way. Thanks

    Which exhaust?...

    On my Akrapovic slip on I can ride hard for hours and then hop off, take off my glove and put my hand on the tip of the exhaust without burning myself, titanium and carbon tend to reject heat very well :evil

    I have posted this before, but once more won't hurt.
    I needed to lower my can a little to clear my HT racks.
    Well over 10,000 miles on this setup and no problems. The aluminum was from an old set of bark busters I had laying around.

    John,

    Where was the interference? Also, what is the gap between the inside of the rack the can? The problem I'm having is the lower left (as looking at your pic) HT pannier mount lug contacts my stock exhaust can. I'm trying to find an exhaust that I'm not going to have that problem with.

    Mine was contacting the lower left pannier mount. I didn't want to dimple the can so I just lowered than can a bit. I now have about 1/2" clearance between the two. No exhaust leaks and lots and lots of miles.

    This morning I received an email which i wanted to share with inmates looking for a good roar out of their beast. I'm very happy with the Carbon LV I slipped on a month ago.
    The email was from LeoVince is about a sale

    Here is part of the email below, contact them for prices..The Sale begins today, Monday, October 25, 2010. The product will consist primarily of active inventory that was accumulated through returned and rotated product from prior distribution deals.

    The sale encompasses more than just returned inventory - it's pretty much anything from 2010 that's taking up excess space in the warehouse in advance of the 2011 influx.

    Mrs. Monster got me a Remus Ti Hexacone for Christmas. No clearance issues with it and the Happy Trails racks. I don't know why I didn't do this earlier.... the sound is intoxicating and it got rid of a lot of the snatchiness in the throttle by having less engine braking. Did I mention it sounds awesome, too? :D

    Hey you aftermarket exhaust experts out there. I have an old leftover Hindle slip-on exhaust pipe (2in2) that was on my '99 VTR 1000 (or Fire Storm or Super Hawk). If I find an adapter, could I fit that on my F800GS? Would that affect performance because of restriction or size?
    Thanks.

    ps: brand new to this (or any) forum, please forgive inappropriateness if so.

    Good question! If you do manage to adapt it to the bike it could work IF the restriction is not too much. Since I'm no exhaust expert I couldn't tell you what the limit is.... Someone here might know?

    P.S. I believe any slip-on would work with the F8 and keep it legal for forest use because it has a Cat and doesn't require a spark arrestor on the slip-on...
