Superbike Unlimited We run a spacer on the belly pan mount.

The videos with Freddy are about our 2019 bike. It's another animal! We're going to make a new post about that.
So you run a spacer where the midpipe mounts to the frame? I'll try combing through your pictures to see if i can spot it. Although I don't understand how it would help the clearance issue with the header pipe coming into contact with the lower (if your clearance problem is the same as mine)

Neonmarine SuperBikeUnlimited: I think I'll make the trip to Tally next weekend, just to see this bike first hand. Also saw the YouTube with Freddy explaining the time crunch you guys are under, good luck!

The clearance issue we're talking about here is caused by aftermarket headers hanging lower than stock. That's the issue. But it's good to know that AB has no issue with shorty mufflers hanging inside the belly pan.

What people have been doing is taking their lowers to a carbon fiber shop/fiber class to have them extended down ever so slightly. It seems like a cheaper way than to change exhaust systems. Akrapovic system should fit the Carbonin lower as it is more compact but I'm not 100% sure. Hot Bodies have enough room for any exhaust out there. I am curious if Armour Bodies is designed better as well?

Catalyst Composites may also have room for aftermarket exhausts, I would double check though.

I had a gen4 with a gen4 full akra ti system. Knowing that fairings are interchangeable between generations, I put Carbonins on it and it cleared with maybe a finger width underneath. So yay for Akra boys. I mean, clearly Carbonins were designed with a few types of exhausts in mind. I doubt that it's just Akra. What else do they run in Europe? Arrow is big, Spark...
