Recs on Slip-on Exhaust that DOES NOT Use Rivets
« on: August 11, 2019, 09:17:42 pm »
I won't bore you with details, but I messed up my Two Brothers slip-on exhaust can "trying" to get the stainless steel rivets out...in prep for re-packing the core. Was supposed to be easy, or so the videos and instructions say/read, but wasn't for me...

Regardless, can you point me to alternate slip-on exhaust the DOES NOT use rivets (e.g., allen bolts or similar); one you would recommend? Does Delkelvic (sp ?) use rivets? I don't want to go that route again. I spent nearly 2 hours trying this. There's better use of my time.

What recs for a 2013 C-14 might you have w/ no rivets please. Thx.  :)

I always drill out the SS rivets on mine and replace them with aluminum ones.

My Area P {Carbon Fiber} uses screws and is quieter than a Two Brothers.
It's a matter of choice, but I think the Area P sounds better too.  :motonoises:

Ride safe, Ted

I hear you, but it was the drilling out that was an issue for me. Good thought if I have to go that route next time, but with someone other than me dealing with them. Thx

Thank you. I like the idea of screws or similar. I can live with quieter if I can get away from rivets. Me and rivets don't get along at all ...

I Unnecessarily repacked my Akra's at 25k miles this past winter, and it was a MUTHAFukka!!  :-[

Drilling out SS rivets was no joke, and I practically broke my hand trying to manually snap off those rivets ends in the cannister. 

Ouch.  Won't be doing THAT again for a long while.   :truce:
Aluminum rivets are NOT a bad idea!

Not seen any cans that utilize reusable hardware, but that certainly IS a great idea.
Use LOTS of loctite!!

Because of this issue (i.e., rivet removal for me) I got rid of my Two Brothers Racing slip-on, in favor of the Area P slip-on, which uses stainless steel, button head allen bolts. Hallelujah!

I'll know tomorrow (Sat.) as I'll be taking it out for a spin. I received the exhaust this Fri evening and installed it (late). I'm sure it will be fine. Thanks for asking ,,,

Haha, I had already replied to similar in another post. The Area P slip-on, coupled with my Mountain Runner Premium flash, woke up the slightly slumbering beast. I really believe now the TBR slip-on needed re-packing long time back. Regardless, its a rocket now ... when I need it to be  :great: :great: :great:
