Question Yoshimura Clearance

Does anyone else who has a set of Yosimura slip-ons have any clearance issues with the bottom side of the rear fairing?

Mine are a close fit, but they fit. Try backing the mounting bolt and the clamp off, then lean on the muffler to get the gap you want, then pinch up the clamp and mount bolt. Should stay that way, with clearance, and have some pre-tension in the system to prevent vibration.

Thanks PnB. I just got around to making the adjustment to the Y slip-ons. I didn't read your response to this post until today, and my resloution was similar to yours but i did not remove the cans or move them back. I had to install my PCIII and modify the stock fender last night to complete my rash of mods this month. So I took care of it last night.

Yes the Yoshi's do have a very "tight" fit, and their design tolerances are admirable. Unfortunately the tolerances in the stock y-pipe from the factory have alot to be desired. First off, the y-pipe seems to be shifted to the L slightly, and makes the L can sit closer to the fender and the R can sit farther away. Then the R side of the y-pipe seems a little lower than the L, so my solution was to use a couple of hose clamps to pull the y-pipe closer (up) toward the frame. I used some shower gasket found at the local hardware store and a thermostat gasket from the auto store to keep metal rubbing agains metal, and the heat. I had to pull the R side of the y-pipe up further to get the R can to move down. Now I have significant room between the underside of the rear fairing, and the Yoshi CF pipe.

Thanks for tunung in.
