I fit my Ernie's plate on my R1200GS, which has a full Remus setup. While the plate sides come close to the header pipes, they don't touch. At first, I thought I would have a problem, but it bolted up okay with no modification.

My only regret is that the front plate lip doesn't come up higher - I no longer have a cross-over pipe there! Due to the welds, I am not inclined to try to bend that front lip upwards.

Good luck!
