Exhaust Replacement - December 9, 2008, 05:24 PM

So I posted this question on the R-6 forums and I got one response that wasn't helpful at all.
The guy who I bought my bike from dented the exhaust can when he put the clamp on. I guess he tightened it too much. (See attached pic)
So I was wondering, can I just replace the can? I was thinking about doing a small Micron can if it is possible without having to do a lot of fabricating? Or should I just put the same size can on?

Thanks for the help.

save yourself some money and just shorten the can you have....

Pop the rivets out of the end, cut it, looks like you can just pop that dent out (looks to be under the holding bracket right?) and when the can is cut to the length you want, cut the muffler packing, drill some holes, get some new rivets and then just reinstall, it will look great if you do it right and save you a bunch of money!!!!!

just my $0.02, Good Luck

You can install any can you want, as long as the id is the right size. (and you have the right Hanger bracket)
Shortening it like Spyker said is a good option too

dude, I told you that if you want to make it a shorty to just let me know. if it wasn't freezing outside I'd say just bring it by the gym sometime so I can check it out.

Yea I know. I think I will cut it. Your phone was breaking up so I didn't hear everything you were tryin to say. That dent just really bothers me. The dude put a zip tie around the end of the can when it meets the mid pipe. Anyone got any pictures of a yoshi can cut?

And for the record, that does not look like damage from over tightening the clamp.... They can only get so tight.

Do you have access to a garage with tools (drill, bits, cutting wheel, rivet gun)?

This is exactly what i was going to post if nobody had already. I do not know what he could have done to make the can do that. Kick it from the bottom? Weird?!?!?!

Don't know if you can even shorty that now. It is damaged where the can would be shorted to. I guess use the good part and rivet on both ends. Discard the bent part.


OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!

Putting the clamp on just one side of the bracket instead of on each side of the spacer maybe.
I can't tell from the pic.

looks like a failed attempt at tryna make a faux hide side mount thing...like he tried to bend the can...but forgot about the smaller inner tube part that is hard as hell that the packing sits around....once he realized he couldn't bend that...he was just left with a dented can.

the thumbs down is for the dudes attempt..lol..not your explanation cf3232

chop it, there's plenty of good sleeve left, just cut it right at the dent and keep the end with the yoshi logo, will look and sound much better
