Carbon Fiber Exhaust ?? - February 17, 2011, 11:30 AM

I have a carbon fiber exhaust that came with my bike when I purchased it. It looks like the coating is seperating from the carbon fiber and I was wondering if anyone here has any suggestions on how to restore it back to its original condition and/or appearance. I have included some pics!!!

you can do a coulple different things, your best bet would be to drill out the rivets and just replace the carbon sleeve. i would call MIG and ask them about replacement sleeves, that way you can also replace the packing and your exhaust will be like new. as far as any other way to fix it, there really isnt anything they are just getting old and carbon is not impervious to wear and tear.

oops your right, company shut down in late 2005. in that case, there are a couple guys making carbon fiber sleeves, i know one is www.carbonpartz.net


he can make sleeves for you in all kinds of carbon or kevlar. all you have to do is drill out the stock rivets, remove the end caps, insert the new carbon sleeves then put back on the end caps and bands and re-rivet everything back together
