Heavy duty rivets for my exhaust that will still hold with all of the heat?

I got the regular (aluminum?? I think) from home depot, but they didn't last very long.

Tap and thread the endcap.

Replace rivets with new SS button head bolts.

Exhaust is now serviceable and secure.

Off topic, but i think i might have seen you a month or so ago. Turning left onto stevens forest from broken land? Was a black gixxer/female. I was turning left from stevens forest onto broken land.


I believe i can see the future;
because everyday i repeat the
same routine.

Properly installed aluminum rivets should not back themselves out in either case.

Make sure the rivet fits snuggly on the inside diameter of the hole and is the proper depth to get full expansion on the inside of the exhaust.

I'm not sure if this would be the problem or not.... but I need a powercommander. My pipe is running WAY too hot right now (it turned the can black). I don't think the alum. are holding up to the heat. When I re-riveted the first time, I did 3 new, 3 old (alternating). It was definately on there tight, and was fine until I went to the track, then it rattled loose again.

Abrasive, don't think that was me. I have a predominately dark blue gix, with a sky blue tank (and black stomp grip).

My helmet though..... is the black/grey camo Arai, if you see that-- it's me

Thanks!
get a tap and die set. run the tap through the holes to create threads that you can screw bolts into. use stainless steel button head bolts from now on. end translation.
