can scraping on floor?!

Post by ross46 » Mon Jun 24, 2013 12:28 pm

right at the moment on my bike i have
-an ART straighthrough can
-standard hanger
-what i believe are micron downpipes but have the 3 bolt hole fitting
the downpipes split into the 4 headers and have that weird twist where the collector box is on the standard downpipes.
my problem is that when i go round a right hand corner or roundabout the can scrapes on the floor, way before i could get my knee down or the peg hits the floor. is there anyway i can move the pipes or change the hanger to stop this happening? or could it be a suspension setup problem? thanks, Ross

Are the downpipes fully pushed into the collector?

Yeah they are, was suggested to me that it could be that the downpipes aren't rotated right? Do you think that could be a cause?

Sounds like the link pipe is out of position, do the headers slot into the collector or welded in?
