Remus Powercone - heat

Just purchased a Remus Powercone (Black) for my Black 2008 K1200S (9,500 miles) with the BMW saddle bags and Sargent seat. Installed it last night and it looks great. Anyone know if the heat from the Powercone will be too much for the saddlebag? There appears to be an 1.5 inch+ space between the pipe and the bag.
BTW, also recently installed Passo levers and the bike shifts much better.
Thanks
Frank

Frank, i've heard variation of stories about exhaust burned the saddle bags, I think the lenght of exhaust might played a big role in it. Yet, my buddies has the shortest avaliable on Remus PowerCone, and he had OEM saddle bags on his KS, didn't find any problem at all~ Hope that helps. :P

Thanks Tony
I have heard from others on this and IBMW forum that the heat will not be a problem with my 22" remus.
