Help with Delkevic installation

So, I知 replacing the crappy Two Brothers exhaust that came with my 919 with Delkevics. Got the shock off and the y-pipe installed without too much trouble. Now I知 to what should be the easy part, but I知 totally stumped how the strap is supposed to be bolted to the bike. The bolt is too short to go through the spacer, and I have no idea what the piece with the two holes is for. I feel like I知 missing pieces or just being a dumbass. Anybody installed Delkevics that could help me out?

I just had Delkevic send me that hardware for my non y pipe kit, so it痴 kinda fresh in my memory!

The spacer goes where the Honda mount is, then the bracket, then the original exhaust bolt goes through them.

Then the Delkevic bolt goes through the strap, then the bracket, then the nylock nut.

I think Islandboy suggests a small spacer between the ends of the strap to release a bit of the tension.

The spacer goes onto the top mount. The piece with two holes in it is a hanger. One end bolted to spacer, other end bolted to exhaust bracket.

No worries. What did the 2bros use, are they too short or something?

The two bros was a single can that hangs from an L bracket that mounts underneath with three really short bolts. Was hoping to get this done today, oh well I知 just glad I know how to put it together now. Not having two stock bolts, what a dumb thing to get held up by.

Even though it's not a Delkevic can these pics show the stock exhaust mount bolt and basically how you would hang the end can.

Makes perfect sense now, thanks for the pictures. Without the stock bolts I had no idea what was going on.

Good luck with the Delkevics! I put a set on a Yamaha bike I had. The "kit" came with no instructions. They never answered repeated requests for information on how the various parts were to be used. I ended up making my own brackets because there was no way the pile of stuff they sent was going to mount those mufflers on my machine. Then after all that work, two weeks later one of the mufflers became obnoxiously loud. We ended up disassembling the mufflers (pop rivets) and found that the loud one only had a partial fill of fiberglass. Replacing the fiberglass fixed the problem but in the end I gave the whole set away because they never really fit correctly.

That sucks. Their support was really good for me just recently, so hopefully your issue was something they致e learned from.
