hi ed,this looks like just the sort of thing i need. matt, i will take a pic, but in short its the slight distortion of the circular connector, just enough to notice and no doubt enougt to be a problem fitting it.

I don't think that exhaust expander tool would budge it

You could always take it to a muffler shop. They should be able to fix it for you. I did an exhaust mod to a another bike and needed a straight pipe expanded. They handled it in about 30 seconds.

Well.....my Arrow cat delete pipe came deformed and my exhaust expander worked a treat!
I have 4 different sizes, can do from 1.5 in. to 5 in. exhaust pipe.

That is exactly how my Arrow pipe came!
My expander worked perfect.

I've also had good luck with an exhaust expander. My RG3's arrived with one tube slightly too small to slip over the midpipe. A few minutes with the expander and it fit perfectly.
