Pipes rubbing against swingarm

I was riding and when i came to a stop, i heard a nasty noise.
I inspected it and found out that my left pipe was rubbing on the swingarm a bit.

Anybody ever have this issue?

Any pictures available?
Are they the OEM pipes?

On my Akrapovic full system, the collector mount bolt sheared, allowing the exhaust to shift to the right and the left muffler rubbed against the swingarm.
Rubbed a hole through the carbon sleeve.
It's the main reason I had to buy a set of muffler rebuild kits.

I had this happen with my Erions too. Add a larger spacer where it mounts to the rear foot pegs. It worked for me.
