Hey guys, I have a new 08 883 sporty. My first upgrade to her is the exhaust, I was tired of it sounding like a moped. I looked at both vance and hines, and rush pipes, and decided on the rush slip ons with 2" baffles. The bike is stock otherwise, so I was told by the dealer I would not need to remap until I went to a SE air filter. Anyway.... It took me about 3 hours to get the slip ons off and on. I didn't have any instructions, but I installed them by removing the heat shields, clamps, and loosening the header bolts. I then removed the stock mufflers (boogers were on there), from there basically worked in reverse. Slid on new rush mufflers, lined up crossover ports, tighten header bolts, then the rest of the clamps. They look and sound great, but, I noticed that the heat shield on my rear pipe is off by about 1/4" where the end of the shield meets with the taper of the slip on. I have tried readjusting the shield, but its on right.....what exactly happened here? did I just slip in a "bit" to much of the pipe to the slip on? It tightened down okay on the header pipe, and I figured you would want to do that first to make sure it seats okay, then tighten down everything else from there. Any info appreciated!
