Graves exhaust is in, everything seems to fit pretty good so far. Might have to modify the rear bracket slightly after first initial line up. Looks to be a Very good quality piece.

Keep an eye on that K&N filter. A handful of orgs don't allow aftermarket oil filters. K&N had some issues several years ago after they changed manufacturers. Random failures that they've probably fixed by now but if you end up with an older filter you just never know.

Our local race organization regs are OEM only. I have long used Bosch or Mobil 1, I have had problems with numerous Bosch filters just in the last year on multiple bikes, seeping at the gasket when hot, enough to puddle. With the local regs being OEM only, and four bikes used on the track, it is OEM only now. Not all the bikes are used for racing, but I just want to stock one type of filter.

Agreed, using a hose clamp works but I always think it is goofy looking. And it is not always as easy as it seems it should be. LOL

As far as the graves exhaust goes....Mine fit great, but I did have to modify the rear bracket so the can would clear the swing arm

Thanks

Hey sorry for the late response, I actually took the bracket to an anvil and took some of the bend out of it with a hammer and added a little bend closer to the mounting holes. I couldn't get it bolted up otherwise. Its all nice and tight and the can is off the swingarm plenty now. Ill get some pics tmrw for you
