You may have to loosen the head pipe. I had to on mine. I know th Rubi is different though. Mine was a pain to get the stocker off, more than the new one on.

I had the same issue - I just beat the **** thing into submission!!! Once I got it on the header pipe a little, I put a 2x4 on the hmf, and pounded it till it was on good. Only bad thing is, that HMF is never comin off..lol

mine went on fairly easily. The instructions mention something about removing the stock gasket and discarding it, but I never actually saw a gasket. The clamp has to be real loose w/ no tension on the pipe.
