Hrmmm.. I think what I did was put both flat metal mounting spots on the same side.

Try it that way, it looks like it will work.

It almost looks like how a M5 bracket would be on a M2 can.

Mine was tight. In fact it was so snug that when I tried to feed the wire for my plate lights around the bracket, they keep slipping out. Gave up but luckily you can't see them since the wire is black and I painted the bracket black as well.

I reckon it's a bracket issue.

I did try mounting the bracket to one side of the bushing. The clamp fits well that way, but it brings the can up so high that it touches the taillight, and actually melted a small part of it. For now I have it clamped together with a little custom bracket I made so that it is secure, but sits lower to not melt the taillight. I'm thinking the clamp is from a different bike, as it measures to be an M5 exhaust and therefore definitely wouldn't be an M2 clamp. I will update when the new clamp comes on Thursday.

Pretty sure most of them tend to touch the tail light.

The M5 bracket I just got did not have to be mounted lopsided, it mounts just like I have it in the first picture and fits the pipe perfect.

Ok so they sent another bracket and its perfect if you don't mount the frame in between it..... the dealers are idiots.... my mechanics have sent them size's and everything surely its not that hard to supply the right bracket with a pipe you supply..... =/

you shouldn't have a melting issue with that M5 in carbon, it doesn't get as hot as the metal skinned mufflers.

I could touch mine with my bare hand right after a ride and not get burnt.
