trying to figure out rearsets...planning on using these R6R pieces. They feel good and seem like they'll fit the bill just fine but man do they look "wide". It's like little wings stilling out from the back.



The heel guards will be removed.

Bit miffed...I've been held up really getting the headers and done because I was waiting for mufflers and I needed to get those positioned before I could really get the pipes in place. And I was held up on pegs because I'm going to have to make them around the exhaust...and the pegs and tray are all I got left to set in place before I can do finish welding, drop the engine, and paint the frame. I had to wait three weeks for the mufflers. I really wanted this left exist high mount dual can setup...I had something real similar with my first CX and I loved it.



But after FINALLY getting the cans in and building the bracket to hold them so I could line up the plumbing...I'm not sure I like it as much as I thought I would.



I'll probably mount very similarly to how they're mounted stock :/...which isn't bad, just isn't as interesting as I wanted it to be.

No the flanges won't let me get them closer. I could close the flanges off but I don't think it'll really solve the issue. I think they would need to be closer together and lower, but it'll interfere with my legs and ankles.

Well, just my opinion, but I think they would look better angled more steeply, say to where the slash cut at the end of the muffler is perpendicular to the ground.

And also yes, closer together.

I think that's not where the exhaust ends up. It's going to take a long auld drainpipe to get out to that position.

What about like this?
