Rear Grab Bar

Anyone have a wide rear grab bar installed with an aftermarket exhaust??

I bought a Moose Racing grab bar for mine, but it won't fit with my DG X2 slip-on. I guess the slip-on is a bit longer than the stock muffler. Apparently the grab bar was made for stock. So, I'll be returning it, but I was wondering if anyone else had any luck? It would definitely be nicer having a wide rear bar for if I get stuck in the sand or just pulling it around.

Had the same issue with PRM grab bar and 2Bros exhaust, just trim down the bar and works like a charm. Most exhaust companies uses the OEM grab bar for their specifications.

:\...Problem is, I'm kind of limited to what tools I have available to me. And I definitely don't have a Lowe's or Home Depot out this way. Any suggestions as far as retail goes? Another company perhaps?

Here's the one I have pictured on a Yamaha. My slip-on bumps into the handle on the right which doesn't allow me to align the screw holes. So I'm not sure how I would modify it to fit.

how much of the pipe is contacting the bar, I used a dremel and basically trim the bar itself, the bar is not 100% but still strong enough to lift the bike.

Aw man, I would have to pop it back on and measure to be sure, but would probably need a couple inches. I think I would end up trimming off that right handle completely. I tried to do some "fit and finish" on it before, but there's just no way it'll work right now. Of course, I hadn't thought to try and trim it because I can get my hands on a dremel tool.

You'll need a grab bar that is angled. I know Pro Armour has one but I haven't found it for sale anywhere yet.

Looked on the Pro Armor website. Doesn't look like they sell any of the angled grab bars for the 700xx. Guess I'll have to keep looking.

They have it. I just can't find a store with it in stock.

Oh, good. Well, they don't expect them in until June so I guess I'll keep my fingers crossed, and keep looking in the meantime. If anyone else sees 'em anywhere, let me know.
