It's hard to see in the pic but my cans actually come away from the bike at a 45 angle to clear everything.  It doesn't have to be straight, it just has to look and sound good.   ;)

Last, get some Permatex muffler paste.

Hey Scott!

Ok, are we talking about Permatex Muffler & Tailpipe Sealer (80335)?

Or, Permatex Muffler & Tailpipe Putty (80333)?

None of my local establishments, even the ones that carry the Permatex brand, has either one of these.  They all have other brands, but I think they're more for repairing holes, and presumably set rock-hard and have to be removed with a chisel - which I'm pretty sure I don't want...

I use this:
http://nfieldgear.com/enfield-store/aftermarket-parts-accessories/exhaust/exhaust-assembly-paste.html

It comes in a silver, metal squeeze tube.  Of the two you posted, I think one is primarily for slip joints in automotive exhausts.  The stuff I posted hardens completely to a rigid plaster/cement like consistency.  Once hardened it can crack or be chipped and scaped off at a later time.
