    Very nice. Looks to be mounted secure.

    A little more drama to my Remus exhaust. As is, it doesn't fit correctly. Basically the center stand doesn't contact the rubber stopper on the underside and hits the bottom of the pipe. See image below. My previous images show how it is mounted now which is too far outboard and actually has the whole thing on an angle outwards.




    Of course I'm wondering just how complicated can it be mounting an exhaust system, right? There was something that wasn't right. So after taking a bunch of images and editing them with text, etc, in Paint 3D, I contact Remus directly asking for help. And I got my answer. It would appear that the system is designed for the later style exhaust rubber mount which came into effect on 09/1985. That's not stated anywhere. My bike is an 03/1985. To mount it correctly I need part #9 which, luckily, is still available. This will allow the exhaust to sit farther inboard and then the center stand will make contact with the rubber. I believe the rubber mount attaches to the two socket head screws (60mm center to center) where the lower part of the left hand luggage case holder is attached and NOT the location of the original exhaust which is the footpeg bracket. Would someone be able to confirm that for me and that it is also 60mm center to center? Much appreciated.

    This would explain why the rear mounting bracket with the new exhaust only has one hole. If I can get enough light in my garage to shoot a photo I will, but it's been pretty dark the last few days.

    Just an update with respect to the rubber exhaust mount, item #9. I incorrectly stated that it consists of two parts; it doesn't. It would appear that 18 21 1454981 is superseded by 18 21 1454982 or the reverse. I don't know if they changed the part somehow or just the part number.
