Yoshi R5 touching rear of tail

I just installed a RS5 on my 2015 cbr600 and it makes contact with the rear of the tail. Is this normal?

It is normal. I would order the lowering kit (or make one yourself) that TST sells. I installed it on my Yosh and it will give you about 2" of clearance, Clarence...

Helps other motorists see your brake light much better too...

ETA: I didn't pay attention that yours is a 2015 and the TST kit is for the '07-'12 models. However, I bet it would still work...it's just a couple of extension links...check it out and see what you think.

Thank you for the info. That bolt took the longest time to install! Wish I would have thought about a lowering option before I put that bolt in! I like the look of it close to the tail. It does not block the taillight. Maybe some kind of flame proof insulator.

The slip-on seem to lineup pretty tight. Is there enough play to lower 2 inches?

The bolt on my 07 wasn't too bad. Although I can see why yours could have been a PITA. With it that close...yeah, it would be a tedious fight.

The TST lowering kit will lower it at the can and the mid-pipe connection, so yes...you will have enough movement to clear 2"+.

Lowering at the mid pipe also is the key, thanks. I did not see that on TST'S site. That explains the three link setup.
