    I'm just installing a Two Brothers on my 08 VFR and having an issue. With the fender eliminator (Competition Werkes) it's a very tight fit, I have to use the supplied spacers or the cannisters will rub against the plate. Even with the spacer it is very tight (less than 1/8" room), I'm not sure if they will rub when riding.

    If I use the spacer, the supplied bolts are too short (they come with 60mm, I'll need at least 80mm). Supposedly the supplied bolts are to be used with the spacer, but that won't work for me (not sure why).

    Has anyone installed a Two Brothers with a fender eliminator and encountered issues? I'm going to run out to pickup new bolts, still a bit concerned the cannisters will rub up against the plate and get scratched when riding.

    Neither HD nor Lowes had them, I have to get the bolts from a speciality store. I actually reached out to Two Brothers, they asked me to send the part numbers to ensure I was sent the correct set, waiting for them to verify.

    No PC yet - I assumed one is not needed for the slip on (similar to other bikes I have owned). Did you find you needed one?

    It's expensive but the PC5 is the single most effective mod that you can make. Id bet my mapped 800 against any of my90's race bikes.

    Could you use a base map, or did you have to get custom map done?
