Mine wasn’t moving when I got it, maybe just the finish on the pipe “glued” it together, I took some ratchet straps to it, made a nice pop sound and then it moved pretty easily. But yes I did get it to fit and it sounds beautifullyMine mounted right up. The cross tube is really just a guide, the pipes spread apart that last little bit very easy. Place one, then placed the other. The fairing removal and reinstall took longer than removing the old and placing the new. Maybe I was just lucky.
