I think this has been addressed in the past but I could not find the thread. I have bent my stock silencer so far that it hits my rear tire now. I crash a lot and that’s not going to change anytime soon. And while I am the first one to say I hate loud bikes, I also hate bent silencers, subframes, and all the parts and bolts and panels that don’t line up anymore. I’ve heard of cutting the last part—after the bend—off to make the silencer more normal sized and less of a target to fall on. Anyone have any more info on this?
