Rinehart Churchill's

I just got a set of Rinehart pipes. Just wondering if anyone else had issues getting these installed. They are going on a 89 FXSTC, problem I have is the rear pipe is too close to the rear axle nut, I'm not sure if I need to put spacers between the frame and the bracket that the pipes mount to. So far I have just loosely fitted them, but thinking when everything it tightened down, it will be worse. Any thoughts?

I just installed them on my 09 FLSTC last Monday and had the same loose fit issue. When reading their piss poor installation instructions, it read like you were supposed to remove the OEM studs and use their bolts. I tried that and had the alignment issue. I put the studs back in, went ahead and snugged down the bracket and everything began to line up. The OEM studs spaced the bracket out about 3/16 to 1/4" and back at the rear wheel gave good clearance. Did your FXSTC have OEM studs and did you remove them?

I removed them, used their bolts, but added 3 washers between the frame and bracket and everything lined up nicely. They look great, can't wait to pull it out of the house to start it up. Thats gonna be a few months.

I started to do the exact same thing...then realized the three washers were pretty much equal to the studs...so I put them back. Anyway, glad you got it done. Few months? I couldn't stand that!
