I remember putting on the carbon fiber strap the wrong way at first. Made the can stick out a little further. Also make sure your pipe is in all the way.

I will check the upper mounts. Right now the heat shield is interfering w Arrow. As is, it has worked w the stock muffler though. Thanks all. I’ll follow up
My Arrow can sits in virtually the identical location to the OEM can. There have been issues with the Arrow can not being installed correctly. See the following thread:

Givi quick release on a 2015 with arrow can works fine though it is tight

Both are ok Fred, double checked, I now keep an eye on that slip joint to make sure it's not sneaking back out. If I rotate the Arrow pipe clockwise (inwards), in order to give it more clearance from the luggage frame, the centre stand rubber hardly touches home on the bracket. It's a bit of a compromise.

Follow up on Givi/Arrow fitment issues. My Arrow can and Givi monokey rack were installed correctly. I didn’t loosen can and try to gain more clearance by slightly rotating. I did find the SW Moteck rack for Explorer on sale at Twisted Throttle. Man, that thing is stout. Really nothing wrong w the Givi rack (besides not fitting w my Arrow) but can’t compare to SW Moteck. This also will allow me to fit ADV panniers later. I did have to modify outside spacer on muffler hanger for more clearance though.
