If you're referring to the aluminum "donut" spacer that has about a 3/4" od and 7/16" id, and is about 1/2" thick, it goes between the two halves of the band clamp. The mounting bolt goes thru one half of the band clamp, thru the spacer, thru the other half of the band clamp, and into the threaded mounting hole in your frame.
Hope that helps.

Glad that was the right spacer, otherwise I'd be looking a little foolish right now....

Just remember to tighten everything per the instructions so you don't stress any joints, and you'll be fine.
In particular keep an eye on the four screws that secure the can to the collector, in my case they continually worked themselves lose and ended up destroying the collector.

I got to ride with it today and I will say I'm impressed with the power, way better than my VOR tip.
As much as I like my Q, I'd still like the freedom to occasionally put the PowerCore IV back on and just blast away. Here in California, though, it's no longer legal.
Quieting the bikes is a fairly small price to pay as long as we get credit for it. We need to make them give up something in return for everything we do from this point forward. No more restrictions unless we get an equivalent tradeoff.
Urge your legislators and our friends at the AMA, BRC, Corva, ORBA, and others to actually negotiate these things into new regulations. I'm sick of being the giver all the time. We need some land back. If they represent sound as the REAL PROBLEM (even if it's not), then they need to put their money where their mouths are. We need to tell them "If we get quieter, then give us back the land you took away based on noise issues......"
Just a thought.
