I have kerker k-45 slip ons rite now on my 92 1100. It sounds great but not much performance. But I keep hearing and reading good stuff about this stainless steel hindle exhaust. As anyone installed one on thier bike. If so hows the clearance from the oil cooler and oil lines. Also how's the clearance of the top of the muffler to the bottom of the motor. Is it a loud exhaust.

Reduce your sig image under 175 pixles high before Hunter gets you.

I'll post images to answer your questions later this afternoon.

Call Hindle at 905-985-6111 if you have any questions but I think you'll be fine. I have an 1100 pipe on my 750 but I don't know how much taller your 1100 block is. Can't be a lot.

any exhaust will require a bit of "fitting" when being installed.
the hindle only needed to be bent down about half an inch near the oil pan the rest just slipped in place.

I will never buy any other exhaust. period.(just like I will never buy a Kawasaki;))
a 15 year old hindle can:





and I know about the oil Simon.

Fastcat fitted one onto an 1100K and had issues around the cooler clearances but the block is shorter I think.............

It's a close fit underneath on mine, but it doesn't touch anything down there and I didn't have to bend it - just hadda be careful assembling the header tubes into the 2-1 collector... yeah, the oil-cooler hit the header; I had to move the bottom cooler-mounts forward about an inch. I *think* that's only an issue for the curved oil-coolers though. The clearance on the swingarm is a close thing too, but it doesn't touch there either, just *very* tight clearance.

One other thing:
If you get the "High Mount" system, do NOT try to get creative and use the rear refelctor bracket to mount the can like I did... it will break. I ended up getting rid of that steel sub-subframe and using 3/4" aluminum flatbar to fab up a mount from the can to the aluminum subframe (where the passenger footpeg used to mount). You will also have to make a bracket for the seat-lock on the left side, or else leave the passenger footpeg bracket on the left side. Nothing complicated, just takes patience... a coupla feet of aluminum flatbar, a drill, a dremel tool, and a hacksaw are also helpful to have on-hand.

worked like a charm.
