Just wondering how it's supposed to be. Mine is a 2015 with an HGS and in a really decent condition (no dents in the pipe so I guess it shouldn't be bent) but the frame to pipe clearance by the water pump is surprisingly low. The coolant hose running from the pump up to the radiator is practically squeezed in between. Still has a round shape but does not move freely. IMO, nothing should be pressed against the exhaust. The cylinder to exhaust mating flange of the pipe (hope it's the right term) is coming towards the cylinder at an angle. The exhaust port centerline should in theory be aligned with the pipe opening centerline, but it isn't. Mounts are not bent or anything though, I'm positive. Is this normal? Or is my pipe bent? Can I fix it? Does it affect performance?
