I will add that my HT racks aren't balanced. The use of the clif-cut pannier on the left side evens everything out.

It should be 1.5" difference between the two, so, 12" or 11.5" to be safe.

Rob,
Do you have the Twalcom on your bike? Would you mind taking a pic of your bike from the same angle as John's (also with the measuring tape) so I can see how much difference there is between your Twalcom and the LV?

Thanks.

Are those the balanced racks on your bike Rob?

In the second pic it looks like the inside edge of the rack is exactly 10" from the centerline of the bike. Is that right, or is the camera angle distorting the measurement? You mentioned earlier that the rack is 11.5" from center; is that for the balanced racks or the standard (non balanced) racks?

Thanks.

You are absolutely right -- it should actually read 10.5", not 11.5" as originally typed. I've gone ahead and edited the post.

The camera angle makes it looks like 10", but it's actually 10.5". Those are the balanced racks with the Twalcom Exhaust... a not cleaned Twalcom. :(

This is great information, thanks for all the help.

So it looks like there are at least three exhaust options that will work... the Twalcom and the Metal Mule are known to be compatible, plus the Leo Vince looks like it should be okay based on measurements.

It *looks* OK, and I've been in touch with TX Medic. We'll use him as a test case to see if they indeed will not work. Let's see how his setup comes out before ordering any balanced sets with Hexacones.
