Installing the Satos

Well I've begun the simple Sato/givi install process and have come to a snag.

I don't have the bottom pipe clamp. No Big Deal or should I not move the bike until I go get a suitable clamp/permatex? Anyone know what size clamp I would need or have any recommendations?

I would think a screw clamp would work until you can find a better replacement.

If you lock down the strap on the can itself, it's not going to go anywhere. You might get some blowby and some carbon build up, but it shouldn't hurt anything.

You'll be able to pick up a decent stainless steel clamp at a good hardware store. Also get a small tube of Permatex black to smear around the join to ensure a 100% seal.

Without the clamp I suspect it will bang and pop on deceleration and may even vibrate a bit.


Do it right the first time is my motto.

I ended up getting a semi bulky muffler clamp from advanced auto and permatexed it as well. Im not sure that i have a very good seal though because it pops on decel. I put it on the header then shoved the exhaust on, i feel like i want to cover the outside in that gunk then wrap the joint in some sort of adhesive heat resistant wrap...

If you put some masking tape around either side of the join and leave a couple mm between the tape then squirt some goo on the line and force it into the join with your finger - smooth off and clean up then remove the tape. You should have an immaculate looking seal. Allow it to set at least overnight.

The pop on decel could also be caused by the Pairs system. If you haven't installed block-off plates, do it. It stopped my popping.

I kind of like the popping, are there any problems caused by the popping?
