Let me guess, it hits on the top of the exhaust, right?... The Leo Vince does not stick 'outward' as far as stock so it would be hard to believe it's hitting the Wolfman rack on the side of the exhaust. It does sit 'higher' than stock though. So, we're not talking about a width thing here, rather a height thing.

Folks are experience the same 'height' issue with the top of the Leo Vince can making contact with the Happy Trails rack. I'm not, but it is an issue for some.

Most aftermarket exhausts for this bike sit 'higher' when mounted than the stock can. The Wolfman rack is designed around the stock exhaust. Seems it's a problem with the rack not being designed around aftermarket cans. Another inmate (not sure who) had this same issue. He called Wolfman and they made him a new rack that allowed for the aftermarket Leo Vince can. I'd keep the exhaust since it's not the exhaust that is the culprit. The problem is the rack, being it is designed for the stock exhaust.

There seems to be a bit of variation between frames (not a lot, but we've seen it on a few) as well as the racks themselves. So between the bike frame, the aftermarket rack and - admittedly - an upwardly-biased silencer, sometimes we run into an overhead clearance issue.

LeoVince has been very good about sending out extra hardware to lower the silencer by as much as about 3" (by virtue of the length of the strap material included, which is meant to be cut to needed length by the recipient) any time we get feedback that a customer is having a clearance issue. Whether you bought your exhaust from us or not, simply call or email the store and I'll be happy to help you with whatever you need.

If you'd rather cut out the middle man, feel free to PM MatchTop, who is our LeoVince factory rep - he'd be the guy sending out the extra hardware.

Some customers, upon running into a clearance problem, simply fab up an extender to drop their pipe by about an inch using scrap material they happen to have lying around... and we don't hear about the initial problem. It would be helpful in terms of product development if you handy self-fixing types would drop us a note so we can keep tabs on what's happening in the field

That's some fancy English there, but I think I get the gist of what your saying. I'll check to see if it's seated all the way. Thanks to Scott at Renazco , I believe I'm getting some sort dangle that will change the angle of the can....am I right Scott?

I'd have to concur - within reason, of course. Often, the link pipe isn't as "seated" as one might believe.

Disclaimer: self-installation pre-supposes that one has the technical capability to overcome any encountered obstacles during the install. When in doubt, STOP and ask for assistance!

Yes, sir. I believe Ryan pulled the bits for you today.

Hi-hi..... Your right ... Now that I read it again..... If you want to be sure, measure the seating depth of the lv inlet... Mark same distance on the mid pipe...

Does anyone know the contact info of the guy who builds the wolfman racks? I know I've seen him on here but can't seem to find him. Thanks

Which exhaust?...

On my Akrapovic slip on I can ride hard for hours and then hop off, take off my glove and put my hand on the tip of the exhaust without burning myself, titanium and carbon tend to reject heat very well

I have posted this before, but once more won't hurt.
I needed to lower my can a little to clear my HT racks.
Well over 10,000 miles on this setup and no problems. The aluminum was from an old set of bark busters I had laying around.
