It does touch the number plate a little - have you got the original rubber spacer still fitted on the inside of the number plate? Mine does not cause permanent damage, just touches a little.

I have a endcap plate that protects plastics it goes on the plate stack, just wish I got it before I started to burn rear fender. I think WB have these plates on there website.

I am running e-series exhausts on both my bikes. The tab that the Res is attached to is not very strong and a really good right side crash creates enough force to bend it toward the exhaust. I bent the mount out to a point where the res is 3/4 of an inch from the pipe and the outer guard does not put pressure on the plastic res.
I will keep an eye on them from now on....Only $13.00 to replace so it's not a wallet killer, and a Mighty Vac makes the replacement only a 10 minute job.

I really could not tell there was a problem with my WR until I took the res off and looked closely at it. The back side was warped just enough to allow fluid to escape after a hard ride. I didn't notice because of all the mud and the fact that the heat from the pipe was evaporating it.
Now that I have replaced the res and used a piece of course grit sand paper to rough up the lining on the pads things are kickin....
