Spot Welding.. needed ASAP - July 18, 2008, 10:39 AM

Anyone got any recommendations as to where I can go to get my exhaust spot welded at the rivets??



Quick turn around time and low cost is wonderful too!!


Thanks

On the can? Does just need to be re-riveted?

I'm not too sure... the can is loose at the point where the rivets are. It's noticbly loose, as it rattles constantly when I'm riding

Is it the can itself, or the exit side end cap? Welding may not be the best solution...

What material is it? BTW it is not called spot welding on a piece like that. You might have to drill out the rivets first then weld. Can you post up a picture of said piece?

No worries there - there are plenty of folks with the knowledge to be of assistance.

It's rattling from the points of the rivets to the end of the can (to the left of the rivets)

I wasn't sure what the exhaust was made of, it was on there when I bought it from the dealer (used with 2k miles)

Anyways, the Jardine website says "The Suzuki systems are a Black coated aluminum canister with stainless tubing"

Replace with the same size rivets, or slightly bigger ones?

Well, I would see what the source of the rattle is too.... it is a shitty fit on the end cap to the canister, or is the core rattling because of lack of packing in the can itself....
