Nice looking bike. How many miles are on it?
The graphite seals were in the way ie the header's outside diameter was too big with the seals in place.
The Remus pipe was a tight fit on the bare header pipes.
As far as the seat lock goes, I wanted to lay the left side panel up & away from the middle of the bike and as the seat lock & cable are attached to the side panel, I had to remove it.
Only 3000 miles on the ADV...........
