Barkers Exhaust Question

Should this pipe be against the engine? I would have thought it would have some clearance in there. You can't slide a sheet of paper through it. I think it will be ok if it IS supposed to be against it, but I'm just checking with you guys as I didn't get any instructions (not that you have to be a rocket scientist) to put it together.

I have measurements floating around on the forum some place but there needs to be a gap there not much of one but something. The usual reason its tight there is because the can is generally not installed far enough into the billet bracket which pushes it closer to the cases.

as you push the can further into the clamp you will want the head studs loose the further you raise the head pipe up towards the seat the more clearence you will get where you need it as well.

just loosen the stuff up and play with it you will get it. I put a big screwdriver or a open end wrench in the billet clamp to keep it open so when your moving it around it doesnt scratch the can. this allows you to position everything easier if its a little bit off the extra room dries up quickly

I'll try to do that today, yeah and a light application of Mothers mag/aluminum polish will get those scratches off ;) It's almost impossible to get that clamp on without scratching it.

Unfortunately adjusting the muffler won't help that. I would call and make them replace that!

Man, now you guys have me kind of scared. I've only fired this up for 5 seconds, haven't even rode it... it hasn't even burned the oil off my hands off of it and you have me wondering. I wondered about that connection because where the pipe was expanded for the head pipe to slip in, was WAY off to one side. I kinda said WTF when I saw it, but I just kept on. I was able to put about 1/4" on the gap tonight. Here are new pics. Nothing a crow bar can't fix! I would contemplate sending it back, but I have a big trip i'm leaving for - in 12 hours... I can't take everything off now.

Here's the best pic I currently have of that expansion connection joint.

A. you can see is a smooth transition on the back side.
B. There's a HUUUUGE hump in the pipe where the expander pushed way out to one side.
