Scraping Exhaust

Postby Daffy990 » Sun Jun 10, 2018 6:34 pm

Noticed when cleaning that I’ve scraped my exhaust header on the right hand side. I’ve got PP rear sets and the full Akra system. Has anyone had a problem with this before?

IMHO, I doubt you scraped that by leaning. I mean, is it possible you rode off a curb, pulled up too close to a curb or parking divider or something of the sort?

Leaning the bike, there are many other ‘hard parts’ that would scrape before your Akra header did. Also, I’m no forensic analyst, but the angle of the scrape doesn’t seem like it would come from the ground.

I have seen this issue posted somewhere else where the bike had major scraping when used on a track.
