Excellent! Thanks for being the guinea pig. I'll update the initial post to reflect this new information.

I just installed the Holan balanced racks on my F800gs with the Two Brothers exhaust and am happy to report that there is no interferrence problems.
Actually there appears to be at least a couple of inches of breathing room, even at the closest places. I would post a picture but haven't figured out how to do that on this forum.
Hope this isn't off topic but How high or low did everyone mount their panniers? Front to back is pretty much set but I could mount them a couple of inches up or down.

Have there been any successful fittings with the BMW/Akrapovic pipe yet?

bumpitty bump-bump.

About to pull the trigger on a Leo Vance SBK and curious if anyone's got the LV running with either Holan or Metal Mule balanced pannier racks.

In the thread there is mention of John Gil's bike working the LV and balanced Holans but no confirmation or photos.

Yes - The LV pipe is confirmed to work with the Holans.

First post so Hello from France.
Before selecting the F800GS, I read and learnt a lot from ADV fellow riders. You answered so many concerns and I choose the right bike.
Thank you all.

I raised this question to Holan PL.
Q: Does the symmetrical pannier frame for F800GS can be installed with an Akra exhaust?
A: Yes, it can be installed with Acro exhaust and we have this symmetrical pannier rack in stock.
So it looks like it's possible but is there someone out there that has this setup with pictures?
I am looking at using it with 2 x 38L Zega Pro.
Cheers

Hello and welcome!

Did you get this answer directly from Holan, or from a local distributor?

Hi,
I asked Info@Holan in Poland directly. I am about to ask them if the balance system accept the Zega Pro and Akra exhaust. Looks tight but I think they should.
After reading here, searching the web, looking at my 30 years anniversary, I came to the conclusion that:
- Metal Mule can only offer me a standard system. Their panniers looks top quality, easy to remove but boxy, squarish and against aerodynamic laws. Not to say that they are expensive.
- Trax are fine but gives me an impressions of low quality built.
- Hepco becker line doesn't appeal me.
- Caribou with the sides that opens is not an option.
- Jesse are expensive in EU and doesn't fit the adventure look of the F800. And my taste.
So what is left is Zega Pro, black or Alu with a Holan frame. Still hesitating between a 31 or 38L set.
If I choose them and once installed, I will show the setup in the forum. It might take a little while.

I'll look forward to it - I really like the Holans but wasn't sure they'd fit with the Akrapovic. The Hepco & Becker racks don't fit with the Akrapovic pipe, so it's lucky you didn't like them.

Raider,
Could you measure from the center of the bike to the edge of your Akra, I have 10.62" here which means that the measured 10.5" won't fit unless I remove or reduce in size the bushing between the frame and the exhaust bracket. It also goes against Holan statement.
Can you please confirm the distance?
Cheers

Sure, mine is 10.2" at the widest part - the base - and 10.0" at the tip (that is, the muffler outlet at the rear of the bike). Measured from the centre of the rear tyre.

Keep in mind that you'll need a bit more clearance than that as the exhaust is not solid mounted.
