What do you suggest I do, other then having to buy a new muffler that go all the way to the back (I think those mufflers make the bike look they are trying too hard to fit into the motorcycle world).
Sorry about the iPhone pics!
You might try a * poo-poo * pipe....it brings it out further along the frame and away from your foot....numerous vendors here in the forum supply them....I plan on getting one myself.....plus they just look darn cool !....or you can utilize one of Jim's ( Creative Engineering....Manic Mechanic ) motor mounts......it allows you to place your motor in an upright position......thus giving you at least two to three inches of clearance for your muffler ....as well as using his billet intake pipe....a clear shot to the barrel....your frame is an ideal candidate for Jim's parts.....
