Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Aren't you gonna have ground clearance issues?

Hi badseeds, nope, did check and all good, bit of an optical illusion with the pics I think. Will do another pic or two when the new hanger is on.

Btw, the can is loud an pops/bangs on the over run, very smooth when the revs are up though.

Hi Muttley

What have you done with the Micron can? Are you selling it? I have been looking for a decent end can for a while!

much improved, don't really go for stubbies generally but think the stock and that Micron look wayyyyyy too long.

Hi,

can does improve the bike imo, the Micron setup, whilst good does indeed look long by comparison. Good to have pillion footrests again (just in case). Can't recall the make of can offhand.
I had to bend the can circlip/holder as the link pipe was a v close fit to the swingarm and its not 100% neat, otherwise smiles all the way. I put a little puig screen on and its made the bike nicer to ride ref neck strain.

Thought I'd keep the Micron stuff in case a project comes along (they all seem to have old cans!), especially as I have the righthand hanger which is cut to go with it.
Here's some pics.
