Exhaust Angle Shims like Chewy's?

On the suggestion of RecoilRob, I was turned onto Chewy's angled shims for the bolt-on exhaust. They tweak the cans slightly to face more inward at the rear, a really nice look.

Has anyone here used these?

Are there any alternatives to Chewy's shims? With shipping to the U.S., they become rather pricey for what they are.

I don't think you'll find anything commercially available for this application for our bikes unless you have some manufactured or make them yourself if you have the proper equipment.

Chewy's stuff is all excellent quality and he was an SV1000 owner to boot. I bought several of his angled can spacers and put two on the left hand side and one on the right on both my SV1000s. I just bought some stainless steel bolts that were a bit longer than the stock bolts. That did the trick on evening up the exhausts so they are almost perfectly symmetrical with my Two Brothers exhausts on both my SVs. I used a dab of high temp silicone gasket caulk on the spacer plates when I installed them and it has worked great with no exhaust leaks (for many years on my '05 SV1000S).

Along with the angled can spacers, I bought two PAIR delete kits. They were easy to install too.

Also, check out my post in the double can angle mod thread.

Again, Chewy's stuff is great and developed for our bikes by a fellow owner so they are worth the cost IMHO.

Chewy's stuff is top of the line. Buy with confidence.

I'm complaining about spending $40 USD to change the angle of my exhaust cans 5 degrees on my 1000cc sportbike for aesthetic reasons only...such first world problems, LOL!

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I think I'll give the Chewy's a go. Looks like his shims are probably worth the cost over trying to DIY or having them made locally.

I'll post pics once I get them installed with my new DanMoto Jisu cans! Should look perfect...

That's actually a really solid idea (and not that difficult).

But, I went ahead and ordered Chewy's shims right after I posted last. Feels good to support someone who supports the SV crowd, so there's that

I didn't want to get too deep into aesthetic mods, but I'm out less than $350 for the slip-ons and the shims, which isn't too bad in the bigger scheme of things
