LED exhaust mounting.am I missing anything?
« on: October 13, 2018, 11:05:44 AM »
Hello all I purchased this complete exhaust used and Iím wondering if Iím missing anything?im test fitting it and it doesnít line up too well.Im also wondering if Iím missing any mounts.It has one on the silencer,one on the expansion chamber that is way off from the head stay mounting hole and one hook for a spring closest to cylinder.This is also an adjustable head pipe so Iím concerned how it will line up once I start messing with the length.any input would be much appreciated..Also can anyone identify which pipe this is?I bought it a while back and canít remember this way if I call Arlen i properly identify what Iím working with..Thank you..

The mount on the exspansion chamber is wrong led uses a longer bracket you can see mine in the pick you zoom in basically go to the hardware store and buy a piece of flat steel cut it to length

Also the silencer just uses a 3/4" spacer and longer bolt to mount. I still run two spring to the head pipe. They just both share the one hook point. Yours is looking a little more like a 350d pipe. Look close one the backside of the mount on the expansion chamber. Mine is lightly scribed there for identification.

Sorry probably not a 350d. It doesn't appear to be BB pipe. I think he only make one small bore pipe

That "one" spring mount can take two springs to the flange.

I'd also recommend using insulated exhaust hangers for the silencer mount AND for the pipe-to-frame mount (just offset it and LED's mounting bar lines up fine).
