Installed EHS Big 3!

Well guys, after a while of tossing it around, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered the EHS big three package. First, I would like to say thanks to Eric at EHS racing for great service and extremely fast shipping. (I ordered it on a Friday, got the exhaust on the following Tuesday and the other stuff on Wednesday). Next, what a difference! Its like a whole new machine. It pulls so much harder through all the gears its scary. Definitely money well spent! According to my Trail Tech Vapor, I hit just over 80mph after the install, before I was topped out at 78.4. Also, today I installed ODI Extreme lock on grips, they look awesome and were a breeze to install. I have one issue with the Barkers exhaust tho, as i have read on here, it rubs on my clutch case slightly. And i mean slightly, but only when its warm, although I did manage to get a .005 inch feeler gauge between the pipe and the case while warm. Is that enough space? I talked to Eric and did as he recommended and slid the can out towards the back but it didnt change it much if any. Any tips? Sorry for the long post. Thanks in advance!


Exhaust



Grips- Laser etched clamps say "700XX" = Awesome haha

After 2 gen 1 and 1 gen 2 head pipes, mine still barely rubs when good and warm. Tried everything, just won't stay clear. Finally just put up with it.

OK I struggled with this for days before I rigged it up

My process involved....

1. Gettign the head pipe loosely fitted on.
2. Next I slid 2 pieces of thick cardboard netween the two places the pipe was really close/rubbing on my case.
3. I put the clamp on the Exhaust can at an extreme angle. The outside part of the clamp was closer towards the front of the bike. Loosely tightened.
4. Finished tightening the Head pipe.
5. Tighted the clamp. Because of the angle of the clamp as I tightened it it actually pulled the pipe back and raised it off of the case.

Seemed to work for me. The cardboard was basically just to hold the head pipe where I wanted it because I was doing it myself and it kept moving on me.

EDIT: I put it on at this angle because Eric told me how far the clamp was actually supposed to be back the can and it would just not line up that far. So by angling it on there then tightening it to pull it back it worked.

Thanks for the tips. Wish i would of saw this a day ago. Haha. I called Barkers today. Very helpful guys there. I sent them pics and they couldnt figure out why it was happening. I let them know I was going riding in WV this weekend, they instructed me to put the pipe in a vice and pinch a steel rod (like a screw driver shaft) on top of the area that rubbed and tighten it to form a small dent/crease for more clearance. They said it would not hurt performance. They also said when I get back from WV, they would send me a new head pipe if I was not happy with the quick fix. So thats what I did. It doesnt appear to rub bad on top of the clutch case, but it seems to barely rub on the back.

how much did you slide it towards the back? i had a measurement on one of the post on here of what it should be approx. You can mount it and move it quite a bit like a 1" it more than you think i've had a couple here i installed that if you just put it on it will be close but moving them in the clamp has always fixed it. I guess its possible to have one that got messed up but for the most part since the initail issue which was probably a year ago they have been all ok for the most part.
