Luggage to Exhaust clearance

Recommended Posts

My Givi side racks aren't clearing my highmount pipe. Not a huge surprise as I have read the threads on here and elsewhere and thought it might be a problem, but my TwoBros can is small in diameter so I was hoping it wouldn't be that big a deal.

So I added some washers and a longer bolt to one of the supports and I have tweaked the exhaust mount a bit to try and move it inwards. So far I have managed to get the rack ever so slightly away from the can, but with long rides I'm sure it will touch and rub a bit.

I'm not worried about heat as much as I am worried about vibration and rubbing.

What else can anyone suggest I do to get extra clearance?

...or maybe add something to the Givi rack to help with the inevitable rubbing? Thick tape maybe?

 You can see washers in this pic easier. That bar ain't bent. Well it is but it comes that way to clear the plate.
