Hey gang, I would love to ditch my mufflers for billet tips, but that would eliminate the mount i need for the center stand. spoke with bc about this and they said they had no intention of accommodating it. Anyone have a way to keep my center stand and ditch the mufflers? If not i guess il settle for an exhaust tip that at least sits away from the axle nut so i can adjust chain without removing exhaust.

It shouldn't be absolutely necessary to remove your mufflers to adjust your chain. While I've done that, I've also loosened the mufflers and gently swung them out of the way to gain access to the axle nut (and protected the mufflers with rags in the process). Considering how often this should need to be done, removing the mufflers isn't the worst issue that I've come across in maintaining the bike. Changing the coolant was a bit of a PITA, despite the tutorial on YouTube by Stuart Fillingham.
