After the Hindle wears its way thru the brake line clip, it starts working on the brake line itself. I read somewhere that they're working on a revision. So I never installed the Hindle I had bought and went with Kientec's 2-brothers.

The midpipe should fit any post '96 DR650, which muffler we stick on the end won't change the position of the midpipe. Heck, take the muffler off and ride; the Hindle midpipe will still hit the brake clip and brake line. I have a new Hindle on the bench; when I saw the damage done to it (pics posted here), I decided to use the Jesse midpipe. I initially bought the Hindle for two reasons: Two Brothers is known for LOUD exhaust, I didn't want to support that mindset with my money. The second: I like the way the Hindle tapers from the exhaust header to the muffler. Someone said earlier that there was close to 1/2" of 'ding' on the Hindle at the bend.

It all started here and ran for several days. A Hindle rep signed up, asked some questions and disappeared. It was later someone said they were working on redoing it.
