A little heat and a pair of vice grips on the welded tabs should do the trick. Just don't bend them too far outward!
Right now I have 1/2" nuts between the tabs on the subframe and the mounts on the silencer, so it is shimmed out. Although I think I see what your saying, If I bend the tabs on the subframe, rather than simply moving the silencer away, it would twist the silencer, giving me more clearance down low.....right?A little heat and a pair of vice grips on the welded tabs should do the trick. Just don't bend them too far outward!
use a torch!Thanks!
I'll try that tonight. I just love trying to bend aluminum!!
I'll either be singing your praises tonight, or cursing your very existence. Either way should make for a good post tomorrow morning!!
if it was my bike, id do it to just the can... unless you tweaked the frame, but it doesnt look like it in the pics.Wait?!?!?!
Should I be bending the tabs on my subframe, or the silencer? (or both?)
lol, i didnt read his post..ahh, now I see! That's why you mentioned using the torch. It all makes sense now.....
I've already fell for the heat the aluminum until it's cherry red trick. Ended up with a puddle of aluminum that used to be a brake lever, and several amused friends......
