Hey 4Bikes....I'm curious just how much room you have between the brake pivot arm and the pipe. I have an AST peg lowering kit on my bike and it lowered that pivot point 1 3/8" which works fine with a stock pipe. Do you think there is 1 3/8" between your pipe and that pivot point on your Delkevic ?
I used the center of the bolt that attaches the rear brake bracket to the pivot arm as a reference. It measures 3 1/8". The Delk 18" Tri oval is exactly in parallel with that arm, so as another reference, the center of that arm is approximately the same 3 1/8" distance. HTH.

I have the Area P so this isn't exact, but I have the AST Lowerer's on my passenger pegs and there is plenty of clearance.

Ride safe, Ted

Has anyone heard of or tried his brand of exhaust? I want to shed the weight of the stock exhaust but don't want to be too loud! ? ???
I've had an 18" carbon on my '12 since new. Its an 18# weight savings. The sound is awesome. I left the baffle in as there really wasn't much of a diff in sound. And you can't beat the price.

I have seen people post the 17" Tri-Oval and 18" Tri-Oval.  I would guess there is almost no difference between the two, or is ther only the 17" and the 18" is a typo.  It really does not matter much to me as I will pick up a brand new bike in about a week or two.  First order of business will be to order this muffler.  Also does anyone know if they are still offering any deals on these mufflers?

Hi Curt.  Not a typo.  The trioval comes in 17" and 13".  The oval comes in 18" and 14".  Probably more an issue of looks than anything else.  IMO - after several experiences with Delkevic, I believe MAYBE the triovals to be a touch louder - more likely to less area than the 1 inch. 

The 8 and 14 inch slash cuts are different animals.  Not just opinion.
