Do you have any issues on the exhaust side of the bike? How do you keep the saddle bags from hitting/melting on the exhaust?

i dont have any issues with the exhaust at all. the e2 pipe is long enough to sneak under and past the bottom of the bag. the bag rests on the side cover and there are no heat issues. they dont come into contact.

This is the setup i used on my trip through Ky and the Tenn section of the TAT. Tank bag was bought on Ebay from a no name company out of Canada fits good. The saddlebags are tourmasters no issues with exhaust. Posted Image

Martin; those pictures of all those L's are beautiful man!! I am trying to get my father to get a 650L or at least a KLR. He says that they have redone the KLR's...what all has changed if you know?
