919 Broken lower exhaust mounts..help

Has anyone had an issue with a broken bottom exhaust mount tab on their Honda 919's? I installed some Sato's and noticed the bracked is broken. This tab is welded to the bottom of the frame. I installed a strap to support it, and honestly it didn't seem lose at all without it, but wondered if this is common.

Also, installed a set of SATO slip ons with any other mods and the bike runs killer. I rode about 100 miles yesterday, no popping, no running hot, just killer tone and a little more giddy up.

Any feedback would be appreciated. R

Thanks for the reply. RD How many miles do you have now? It is super sturdy, so I am not sweating it.

I can send a pic O' the fix if anyone is interested.

I ordered a Jardine fender eliminator that allows stock signals.....next sat's pre-ride project.

damn, i don't actually know without lookin haha...i'll check in the AM (i'll ballpark it at 15k)

post the pic of the fix, would like to check it out


what the $ on the jardine setup?
(we'll be needin pics of the completed install as well )

really like the idea of keepin stock signals and would like to check out how it looks when u'r finished...


i've received too many complaints from other riders regarding the LED setups, not bright enough during the day. i'm converting my LED's to running lights and re-installing some DOT signals (R6 or Shinkos...have both, just need to decide)

+1 with ratdog would love to see pics with the stock signals. I like the look of the Led lights just that they are hard to see, even some that are stock are hard to see.

will do guys. I am all about safety, and smaller signals are not going to add to performance....DUH. cooler? yeah, but hey, I ride in L.A. Calif!! in prime commuting time.....SAFETY!

Anyhoo...I have talked to Jardine and this part is a "no cut, bolt on" install. I have not seen one installed but, you can see the part on the website.

I had the same problem also with my 2002, and I made a bracket that bolts onto where the centre stand would mount to the bike, and then I just used a spacer and a longer bolt to again support the exhaust.

Hope this helps

puddle jumping, stunting or beer will damage that support. the bracket fix is nice, in case you get it welded UNPLUG the black box.

I thought it was jin that had all the problems, but later found out it was a vacuum line causing his problems. I might be wrong about that.

So, you take off your giant plastic shovel then put on a giant metal one? And pay $86 in the process? Doesn't make sense to me.

You should have bought the official SSS fender eliminator!

SSS....hmmm. It is much smaller, thus lighter and more compact....without giving up safety. Also drops a couple pounds. Now I know that may seem like nothing, but when you add removing the smog can; -2lbs, changing cans; -9lbs, AFAM bars; -1 lb, and the additional HP; +/- 4hp...thats -12lbs, and + 4hp. Good trade off. Efficiennt, and safe. Trust me, I ride it the worst possible conditions, traffic wise....

Sorry...I vented...ok. I will take bigger, heavier turn signals for the safety they provide. Its not like you are going to outrun me anywhere because of smaller signals...make sense????? sometimes cool is not cool

Just for the sake of discussion (it really doesn't matter) but I'm not sure that metal thing is lighter than the plastic thing.

I can understand wanting larger signals. I like safety too, but the Integrator kit actually makes the blinking area larger and brighter than stock, better looking too. If I were dead set against it, I would try to just cut up my plastic one. That's what I did on my last bike.

Ok, sorry to bring back a somewhat dead thread but I need advice. My lower exhaust mount is broken completely off, I mean you can see the u where it is welded to the exhaust but the other half of the circle is gone(top part). I can make that bracket describe earlier in this thread but have nothing to bolt it too on the exhaust, any ideas?

Just got back from my first trip to Deals Gap, it was bada$$. Slayed the Dragon & surronding roads. Anyway, I was looking the bike over after the trip & found a broken exhaust bracket. Took it to the dealer on Sat, trying to get it fixed under warranty(got the bike new last March). The mechanic said the rep would have to look at it. He doesn't think Honda will fix it, so looks like I'm getting to fight w/ Honda to get it fixed. I'm glad that others have had the same problem gives me a little ammo. I'm supposed to find out today what they say. I'll keep you posted.

Honda "should" fix it...

I've ignored the problem for the last 10-15K miles w/o an issue. I'm not going to worry about fixing the little, hardly useful tab on the bottom, it'll probably just break again.

Wonder if it's the general chasis flex that's breaking them off. All fat guys and two up riders should check in.

Got my bike from the dealer. They didn't fix the broken bracket. Said Honda wouldn't do it because of the milage, (it only has 12k), but I'm getting new mirrors. The silver around the outside failed. Honda said they have had complaints about the mirrors but not the bracket. I told them that a few people on the site have had issues but they didnt do anything. O well at least I tried.

Mr.t81 had the same issue and is making a bracket. Mine has been broken for years. I talked him into making me two. You could try him.

Mine is also broken (stock exhaust).

I think it happens to all 919s, sooner or later. Mostly sooner

Here is what I came up with.
Sorry I can't make brackets for everyone, all I have is a grinder, a bench
grinder, a hand drill and a few files.
I can't start mass-producing brackets because I won't have any time left to
work on my own bike.
Notice how far the hole on the header is from the hole on the original bracket.

Once I get one I can bring it in and get them cut by water jet. Not sure of the cost but I would offer them up at cost+shipping just like the pairs cover plates. If Mr.t81 is alright with that.

Cool! Mine's not broken but I'll but one to have just in case. I figure if I have one the mount will never break...

Those pictures look great to me. That bracket will be stronger than the skinny tab that breaks. I'll take one now and a water jet cut version too - will store it as a spare.

Water jet cutting would be the perfect tool to use to mass-produce the brackets. Meanwhile I have enough steel left to make 3 more. I will cut the steel to size, tack the 3 pieces over top of each other with the welder at work on monday and shape the 3 pieces at once. Rickard can have two
and mambomonster can have the last one.
I will send a spacer with the brackets, for mine it's 11/16" long (notice the original bracket was cut off) I will not weld it on the bracket since the length of spacer your bike needs might be different.

Hmmm, I now realize I must check to see if mine has cracked and failed.
Just checked.
Mine is still intact.
Now rickard is going to slag me for not riding it enough - and he's right !
