954 Exhaust ?

I have taken off the rear sets and am in the process of making a replacement bracket to support the exhaust. Without any support bracket the exhaust seems very sturdy. Do you think it would damage anything if I rode without the support for a few days until I make the new one? Thanks, Jay

Re: 954 Exhaust ?

might put stress on the bracket underneath, at least its not as heavy as standard can.

Re: 954 Exhaust ?

honestly, It would probably be fine. But I wouldn't bet my can on "probably"

Re: 954 Exhaust ?

You'll be ok. I rode mine around with no support for months and would take it off anytime without worrying about it breaking or anything

Did it bend the header at the bottom clamp a little? If it bends, I would think that's where it's likely to.
Different bike, but that happened to me.

No not at all. The 954 has another mounting point right under the rearset where the exhaust comes out of the fairing. It does a pretty good job of supporting it when theres no hanger

Re: 954 Exhaust ?

Even still, if you're going over bumps the can still has a bit of leverage to go with its weight. You'd be ok in the short term, but I wouldn't want to not have a hanger on there for too long.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: 954 Exhaust ?

Can you not use a few zip ties to give it some support or even a bit of string?

cheers

If you can't fix it with duct tape, you're not using enough tape

Re: 954 Exhaust ?

I used some of that Scotch blue painters tape, it peels off easily after it melts.

On a serious note, I took the clamp off the muffler until I make the bracket. Rode for about 100 miles over the weekend and there seems to be no problem. Thanks folks!

Re: 954 Exhaust ?

So... After my feeble attempt to make a replacement exhaust hanger with the limited tools at my disposal it went like this. I just removed the actual footrest portion of the rear set, cut off the mount and sanded it down?
