New Carbon, midpipe ID not matching...

Got the new Danmotos. New mid-pipe doesn't really tighten down onto where the stockers came off of... Any ideas on an insert for the mid ID to tighten better on the stock OD? Thinking 2 pieces of galv. pipe strap cut with some give for tightening.... Thoughts? Please?!

Can't you wrap the joint in some exhaust tape and clamp her down?

Cheap easy fix.

Have a read at the 1st comment on YT:
DANMOTO Twin Carbon Fiber on My Brow's CB 919 Hornet - YouTube

Not sure if MRHornet919 is a member here.. but he mentions that you'll need a 2-2.5" spacer. Also pause the video at :57 and see what you're missing.

How much is it out? I may be exactly the same as the stock gasket - try first. If it is only 1mm or 2 you could trim and wrap some sheet copper around the join as a gasket - this should clamp down nicely and use a squirt of high temp silicone as a sealer.

If you are lucky your neighbor will have copper spouting .....


Darn Chinese should have got it right the first time!

Even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while. Glad it was something easy. I know when I removed my stock cans, the gasket was stuck to the can. Were you able to re-use the old ones?

That gasket isn't coming out with damaging it.
Plus it's too thick to fit in between of it did come out.

What he said... Lame. Back to square one. Ideas? This was one idea... use 2 pieces of pipe strap side by side with the open ends opposite each otherso no leaks when tightened

Or some header tape like g00g said...

just about any sheet metal will work, thin wall ducting works too in a pinch

If you take the mid pipe and 9er Y pipe to a muffler shop they may be able to reduce the mid pipe a bit on one of their fancy machines.

I'm going to look for some copper sheeting to put in between.

Save your money. Buy a roll of the pipe strapping I posted a pic of. Installed the cans today. Galvanized strap cut to OD length worked perfectly. Sounds amazing!

That and throw some black gasket sealant in with it, that'll cover any little holes that need plugged.
