2006 AIH Legend - pegs and sissy bar installation

Hello Everyone,

I am new to the forums, I live in Euless, Texas, I have a 2006 AIH Legend.
I recently purchased a sissy bar and pegs at the AIH Factory liquidation sale this weekend 9/13. I got home and started trying to do the Installation. Things were going fairly smoothly until i noticed that the factory drilled hole in the frame on the right side was partially covered by the exhaust pipe. The bike still has the original pipes on it btw. Has anyone else run into this issue?

I am also looking for some advice on the best way to drill the holes for the sissy bar. I was told to just use a punch and make a fairly deep punch into the clear coat and i shouldnt have any problems with the paint. I know from past experience that when i drilled into painted surfaces the the metal that comes out of the hole with the bit can scratch the surface or the paint can flake.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Trueant

I think i see now why its not fitting ...... i didnt really see why until i looked at the pics i took this morning. I think it either has the wrong bracket on the exhaust from the factory or the wrong bend on the pipes. I believe that I am going to call the shop where i bought it and see if they will fix it.

Here are some pics of it.

Yes,

Someone installed your pipes incorrectly

The front pipe should be parallel to the lower frame rails, as in Big Sexy's pic

Your dealer should be able to sort it out

I think its just an optical illusion. I looked at it pretty close and i think its because of the 111 on the side of the engine that makes the engine look like its leaning.

It would be difficult to "lean" the engine forward
