Hey folks..
Just purchased a 2020 Scout Bobber Twenty...Rides great (purchased in St Louis and rode home to Raleigh, NC. Love everything about the bike "except" the ugly swingarm bolt on the "right side" of bike (previous owner replaced stock exhaust w/ a 2:1)... I've seen the cover for the left side... any thoughts on covering the right side? I didn't measure but assume this sticks out a couple inches...
Thanks in advance for any suggestions..

Personally, I’d remove the locknut and cut down the bolt length short enough to replace said locknut with a chromed cap nut

Would like to see a bigger pic of that, where I could see more of your exhaust system.

I looked at mine yesterday after I got home. Unfortunately I’m going to say it’s metric so that keeps me from intelligently eyeballing it. It looked like 5/8 thread to me so 16mm I’d guess but don’t quote me on it

I pondered a long time about this ugly axel bolt too. I got creative with an old Grill Ornament and some hardware I had laying around. Kinky Bunny.
The pipe is the Grit from Rogue Pipe Works (RPW) with a1-off custom Turndown Tip. Upon arrival home after an hour tune-up ride, I had ringing in my ears. Mind you, I used EarPlugs! So I ordered a Quiet Baffle from RPW to shove into the front of the muffler section. Now it sounds SO MUCH better, low rumble grumble, easy on the ears as well as the neighbors.
Upon almost melting my Boots, I got some Heat Wrap and the Heat Shield from DEI Enterprises.
This 2into1 pipe is SO much lighter than the stock exhaust canisters.
