dan moto jisu exhaust problems

So I recently started trying to customize my 03 honda cb919 and so far things are going well. I bought a jisu exhaust from dan moto and installed it but when I try to tighten the exhaust clamps on the stock pipes one of the clamps broke. (The other is tighter but not enough where I feel comfortable) I bought a new one and it seems to be doing the same thing, these are breaking before it gets tight on the stock pipe (loose enough where I can wiggle it on the pipe with just a little pressure). Am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with these clamps? Should I be putting something in the pipes to help seal it better? I'm very new to this obviously. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This site has helped me out a ton already just from browsing.

Sounds like you might be missing the exhaust gaskets.. Pics would be helpful.

I have heard of people breaking the dan moto exhaust clamps. I was lucky and mine have worked flawlessly. but my buddy snapped his. He had a spare laying around that came from a different exhaust that fit

I don't remember there being a gasket on the stock exhaust and the new one didn't come with one so I didn't think of that at all. I will try and attach pictures.

I snapped one of the clamps and bought another one off amazon that was very similar but it's having the same issue as in not tight but will snap if I go any farther

Sounds like you need to widen the slots on the end of the Danmoto pipes where they mount to the Y-pipe a little bit. So the clamp can do its thing instead of trying to compress the metal.

I looked in the stock exhaust and sure enough there are gaskets in there and they don't look to be coming out anytime soon. I have the service manual but it doesn't say what size I need to buy for replacements. Anyone know by chance? Thanks for all the suggestions

If you end up needing a set of stock exhaust gaskets I have a couple leftover that I can donate to the cause. I ordered a full set not realizing at the time that they wouldn't be needed with Yoshi pipes.

Stupid phone. I'm glad it was that simple. I've no experience with Dan moto's and I was pondering what the issue could be but it makes no sense they would make a bolt on kit for our bike that wouldn't bolt on ... Your pics show that they're not on the mid pipe so they gotta be stuck in the muffs. Use some penetrating spray and a cheap set of automotive picks. They are a pita but can be freed up with patience.

Yeh it is.

Wait till you read some of RobT or Mcromo's stuff, or get flamed by LDH, or see a photo of Ken after one of his ironbutt escapades.

Then you'll know the true awesomeness.
