Free: hand made split exhaust clamp
« on: 02 July 2014, 06:37:54 PM »



Collection only.
Item location: somewhere on the westbound M3 between junctions 2 and 4. :'(


Yep, after replacing the downpipes and tightening the nuts to the same torque with my NPL calibrated wrist, one of the two surviving Sandy Bike Spares clamps fractured and then one of my laboriously made replacements fell off.
Note to self: recheck tightness after a few hundred miles.

Suggested method of collection: a powerful magnet

Nice idea, but being stainless they're not magnetic. :(


I'd hoped some Kawasaki split clamps might fit but that now looks unlikely. The GPZ900 used the same design, but are probably too large: a breaker has just told me the fixing holes are 67mm apart (whereas the Fazer is 60mm) and it looks as though the header is fatter on the Ninja too. I assume the GPZ500 used the same size clamps since it was a twin and they used a collar and collets on most of their middleweight fours.
