Surely if I twist the link pipe so it's lower at the back that is gonna raise the far end of the Can because it's gonna pivot on the axis of the fixed hanger point which is on the rear footpeg midway along the can.

But I get your point, maybe I can raise the front of the Can so that levels it out a bit, but I don't there's much play in it before it hits the rear footpeg.

Will look in the light tomorrow
Cheers

Read it again

I never said twist it so its lower at the back! twisting the link pipe will alter the end can and lower the rear of the can :thumb:

Apologies @Stu was trying to read it on my phone screen (whilst continuing to eat my wife's lovely pie {not a euphemism} so as not to upset her by letting her lovely cooking get cold), back on the laptop now. Yeah mate I see what you mean, I'll give it a bash.
Best to run the bike first, get the exhaust nice and warm eh ;-)

Yeah, mine is not the standard can. What I'm aiming for is something that looks like yours JRH but mine looks like this:
Oh , it's one of them . Have the rivets started rattling yet ?

@fastbob yeah I was planning on putting some of that or a silicone heat mat once I'd got a bit of space between the can and the pannier. Sounds like a good idea.

And what about the rivets rattling? What's that?

I had the same can on my GSXR 1100 and two or three of the rivetts at the front came loose after a thousand miles or so . Not a major issue but just irritating to listen to when the bike was idling .

Ah there is a rattle that sounds like a couple of bits of something rolling around in a small space when I come to a stop, I thought it was coming from the front of the bike, maybe the heated grips but I'll have to look now.
