I've been trying to install my RT ones and the left can appears to be further forward than the right by about 1/2 and inch...

When I look at the mids the left one is up to the stops on the down pipe as is the right but it looks to be shorter than the right where it ends. I have the left connected to the foot peg mount but the right is free because the mount is missing. I know the kids are a different shape and length by design but...

The right is all the way up to the stops on the headers / down pipe as mentioned above but the mid seems to end further up the swing arm.

Both cans do the same if I swap them over, I was contemplating getting some cut off of the right mid pipe but want to know if I'm doing something wrong... Or are they a different length? My OCD can't live with it if they are lol.

About 5" from the front of the strap to the edge of the can.


7" from the edge of the can to the weld on the mids


Mids all the way to the stops on the down pipe.

5.5" from the inside of the strap to the edge of the can.


7.5" from the edge of the can to the weld from the inside of the spring holders.

I have the 1.25 mid into can measurement too.

My mids are 13.25 and 14.5 in length, measured like in the picture. if yours are the same I would check were the mids slip on the the header.

Just to make sure we are comparing apples to apples, mine is a SP2.

I hope this helps

Left mid is 14.25 and right is 13.5 I measured like yours. Numbers on the mids are 181015 L and 181015 R

The left fits fine with alignment the right looks to be back slightly by maybe .25 of an inch where the attachment should go on the rear sets. The tabs broken off so I'm not sure exactly where it would have mounted.

My last mids were exactly the same but because the cans were shortened I can't tell if they were lined up or not because it wasn't as obvious I didn't check.

It might be the mids length after just measuring that's off a total of .5 of an inch.... Weird!
