Quick question on the pipes (looking to make similar ones) hows the leg room with the pipe over the the top?

The front pipe is tucked in very tight. Barely touches the frame as well as the cooling fins on the engine. The inside of my pants are close, but never really sit against them. The wrapping is thick so even the accidental bump/touch doesn't transfer much heat. I'll include a pic below from another angle for you.

The only thing I would change for my stance might be having the tips placed a couple inches back. The exhaust comes out exactly where my right foot naturally plants on the ground, and occassionally when backing the bike up I have to be careful I dont rub my boots-pants on them too hard.

You may also want to take a look at the "Talon" exhaust for ideas. Similar styling but the crossover function is unique and places the tips further back as he tries to get similar length in each pipe. They are just very hard to come by unless you want to wait forever.
