sw-motech side case mount

just read the install manual for the racks.
you need to push the pipe downwards when you install the racks: http://shop.sw-motech.com/cosmoshop/...40_20000_b.pdf

is that something that is safe to do by yourself ?

Damn, that looks like alot of work to get those attached. I see the arrow for the exhaust pipe, what does that mean? Is it supposed to be bent down, twisted, not very good instructions....

the explain it in writing on the side you are suppose to loosen the bracket where the two pieces of the exhaust are attached and then push the pipe down.
i feel like bad shit can happen at that point.

Are the SW Motech bags available now in North America, and more specifically Canada? Also curious if any of the SW Motech Crash protection has been developed and is available yet? Any comparisons to Suzuki accessories or others would also be of interest.

That's the best time to put your new aftermarket exhaust on, so you only do it once. Really, it should not be a big deal I don't think.

Doesn't look that bad to me, there's a bracket that looks like a chain link that lowers the muffler about 1 inch...probably to give room for the side cases. The rest looks pretty straight forward.
