You mean 50mm ?
Suprised that more people with ef/el dont raise their mufflers as they hang very low in orig positions.

I have noticed that Marshall's rider does sit low...but that's just how superlows are right - I'm sure it bottoms out here and there...just gotta be more patient when going over speed humps etc.

Hard with superlows and aftermarket mufflers IMHO...raise it too much and it hits the floor heat shield which transfers heat to the cabin...I know I've had a complaining passenger with mine - 3" muffler right under the rear seat :oops:

The tip does look good - but I'm undecided when it comes to tips...so many to choose from lol !

Fair enough; my muffler sits inder the middle of the car really; however ive not really felt if it gets too hot. Quite possible after long drives tho im sure.

yeah the car is pretty low. like steve said jsut a matter of being more careful going over speed bumps and stuff. tho, after driving a lowered car, i couldnt go back to normal height, the trade off in ride comfort is worth the handling.

Steve,

its had superlows on it for the last 3 years
and yes it is low to the ground but handles like a dream
it just needs better brakes as in a set of slotted would do the trick

im glad marshall likes it otherwise he wouldnt of brought from me
and reaped the rewards from all my hard work over the years

enjoy it mate
