There is a difference between the optional system vs the earlier system rear drivers hanger (at least in the assembly manual)
The rear drivers hanger on the early system was different, the later system has the same part number as the N10.
The overaxle hangers are different for Chambered vs N10 throughout the entire run as the N10 hangers are much longer, the chambered utilizes only one bolt with a retainer and the N10 uses a 2 bolt attachment.
The rear crossover chambered pipes had 2 welded straps on them and are bolted together on the early system, the bolt nut and washer were deleted in mid January. (original exhausts would need to be studied to determine if and when the change fell upon the assembly line.)

$2000 and you still have to PAY MORE to get a tiny piece of rubber added to make the hangar right?!?!?!
oh no it wasn't even offered as an option...
When I questioned Eric Gardner about the difference he knew it and merely stated it would cost an extra $50 for them to make them correct. I stammered in disbelief as I couldn't even fathom eliminating a part to save $50 ESPECIALLY given the articles I had read regarding Gardner's adherence to correctness.
It was at this point I basically gave up on anything reproduction being correct regardless of the price.
What I disliked the most is that I offered to send him my originals so he could copy them or take it apart to use my white strap, I asked if he needed anything in order to ensure everything was correct as I really wanted the white sidewall strap replaced with like. He stated they originally made them with white and or black and they received complaints about the white strapped hangers so they stopped however he thought there were some white straps still around and he would try to put it in my hanger.
He told me that they knew how the originals were made and theirs were exact copies, he never mentioned the wedged rubber omission.
Whether intentional or not the pictures on their website were not of a high enough resolution to see that the wedge is missing.
