Anyone else with Austin Racing Gp3 belly exit exhaust can touching the right footpeg? I contacted Kyle at Austin Racing and he told me to remove the fixing bracket bolt then measure clearance between the can and footpeg. I did what he said and found that the distance didn't change, took and sent him a bunch of pics. He replied back and said they cant figure it out and to fix the problem I would have to remove my exhaust system and send it back to them. Now keep in mind that I paid $1200 and waited 8 weeks and 4days for my exhaust to arrive. I think its unfair that I should go through downtime on the bike for who knows how long before I would get my exhaust back? I told Kyle that If they send me a corrected exhaust system that only then will I send back my original one. He refused, so now Im stuck with a new exhaust system that by flawed design is wearing a hole into my can. Anyone with the same issues with Austin Racings poor customer service?

Hello I do not have this exhaust but do have an idea. Not sure how you feel about this but you could belt sand or machine the foot peg bracket parallel to the slip on exactly where it is touching. Based on the pictures only, there looks to be sufficient material on the U-shaped aluminum piece to not compromise structural integrity. 1/8" to 3/16" gap would be more than enough. It's really just the bottom corner of the bracket from what I can see. I personally would do it in a heart beat and avoid all the logistical drama that you will probably face. If you do not have access to a machine shop...a little shop vice a good file, steady hand and a little patience will have the aluminum bracket cleared in no time. Just my opinion Cheers
Kind of late response but I had the same exact issue fitting mine. Ended up using a longer bolt and spacer to push the can away from the peg. Still only have about 5-10 mm of clearance and a line down my decal from the peg. I was not a happy camper. Have some pics of mine if you'd like to see.
