Robbieben I had to install 10 spacer washers to give adequate clearance, my silencer mount is on the outside of the footpeg mount, I've added some pictures so you can see how my silencer and secondaries are mounted, I measured my clearance at 20 mm. Hope this helps you out.

The mount on the silencer is bent slightly from the looks of it, my mount is more square at 90 degrees to the piece welded to the silencer, try bending it back slightly. This should help with clearance, I have around 6 mm clearance between the silencer and swing arm.

Thanks for the info. I'll look into it.

roy826 Had the same issue on mine. Did something similar to what Robbieben did and got enough clearance.

M4 Rub

Hello all! I have a small clearance issue with the M4 muffler. I have installed full kit and one day I noticed after the bike sits for awhile the rear shock expands so much it brings the muffler to the swing arm and just slightly rubs. I have adjusted my fear shock to my weight. And there is no adjustment for the exhaust. Does anyone else have this issue?
