Yes

I had to trim mine as well. The front part before the header is longer than most pipes.

I've had 3 different mufflers/pipes and had to trim the canopy each time, including when I put the 522 on. It doesn't look so neat now, but you can't see it when its 100 feet in the air.

thats what i did, let it melt perfectly and took extra 3mm and it fits neatly.
but the real reason for my question is, would i have to trim a fiberglass painted canopy too?

!boo!

Yes, you'd need to trim fiberglass. I doubt you'd get the canopy on without trimming first.
