View attachment 486241 Just noticed the shields are off a bit...went back to the pics of the bike the day I brought it home and that's the way it was from day 1...I guess I didn't pay attention...

Having a hard time figuring out how to fix it...pardon the dumb question but can anyone help out on where to begin?

Thanks in advance y'all!

cut the oem shield clamps. Go to hardware store and buy stainless steel hose clamps
or if you have adjustable clamps on there now loosen them up slid forward and tighten them up

I have exactly the same fit. Exactly. Noticed it only after putting on my ragin cajun mufflers so I have the adjustable clamps now of course. I could have fixed the front..causing a gap at the back of course. And I wasn't going to bother mucking with the head pipe cover. I think its just bad trim execution by the factory. And frankly, it's not bothering me at all.

Yeah, same as mine was. Front header, use clamps, slip it back. Not real hard, use a dremel to get at the old clamps, they come off pretty easily. Line the seam up as good as possible, then tighten the front one wherever it lands.

They're a bit tight on the pipe. Depending on where the joint seam is at you might get it on there. Mine were on the inside, like they tightened the shields before assembly. I could get to them with a screwdriver but couldn't get a pry on it without hitting the shield.
Maybe take a hammer, screwdriver on the joint, pop it loose. Someone might have better way.

I was actually thinking of hitting up
My local dealer and see if they'd fix it under warranty...lol
