    Get the Kartboy long exhaust hangers.
    It will drop the mufflers down a little bit.
    I had to do it to mine.
    A little Dawn and a sponge will get the crap off the bumper.

    I have a set of four and I really like them.

    Tough to install? No. They're a lot stiffer, so just put a little vasaline on there and they slide right on.
