Default Bodis slipon and heat issues

After arriving home from a short outing yesterday I noticed the rear portion of the left tail side is pulling away from the tail light creating a noticeable gap compared to the other side of the tail light. A closer look revealed the mount on the inside of the tail side is separating and deformation is visible from the outside. It appears heat from the Bodis slipon is the cause, would cf tail sides be more resistant to heat?

Would have thought stock was hotter. No gaps in pipes

The other day I had to go to the hardware store to pickup a few things but soon found I had no place to put them for the ride home, 2 small bags of hose clamps and a package of zip ties. Under the rear seat I put 1 bag of hose clamps on the right side and the other bag of hose clamps as well as the zip ties on the left blocking the vent slots on the underside of tail side. I have to wonder if the lack of air flow could be the reason. So for those that are relocating the rear signals inside the tail side cavity and plan on installing a Bodis slipon there might be an issue.

Thanks for the update as I was looking at a Bodis pipe and I have the signals inside the fairing.

Did you remove the heat shield that was above the stock exhaust?

That sounds right. More heat and pressure from the bags pushed it out

Heat shield was not removed, the two bags on that side were not big enough as to push the tail side out.

The Bodis system runs very,very hot.I put some heat reflective tape under the tailpiece to protect from the excessive heat.

Trust me without going into detail,the Bodis exhaust system runs alot hotter than original system,I think its something to do with the thin wall titanium material transfers more heat,if you dont believe me,fine,buy a system and find out yourself.Have a look at these pics and tell me if your original system gets this hot.[ATTACH]Name:  100_1038.jpg
