Thumbs down High Mounted pipe, no pegset adapters

I recently bought a 05 CBR and it already had the two brothers high mount pipe on it. the problem i have is i have no way to install the stock pegs that came with it without moving the pipe or getting an adapter of some kind, any ideas?

You can't really use spacers like on the 01-03 because the fairing covers up the mounting bolts. So you might be SOL without some custom fabbing of some kind.

I believe, from what i've gathered for a while, that the point of a high mount is usually for aesthetics and for knee dragging, especially at a track so the exhaust canister doesn't drag on the ground. Stock low-mount pipes are easily prone to dragging on the ground the farther you lean versus a high-mount pipe...could be wrong

Peg usually scrapes before exhaust. At least I've never touched any part of the exhaust to the ground. *shrug*

You can call them. I had to do it once to get a replacement hanger. They had great customer service over the phone.

Yep, you are. Only time pipes are going to drag on the ground is if you lowside...or highside but you got more to worry about than stupid pipes
