PostSubject: How to stop insert from pushing out?   Thu Mar 17, 2016 3:16 pm

Everytime I get back from a ride and the exhaust is hot my quiet insert has pushed out a little like this.


Then when it's cooled down its goes right back in and looks normal again.
Is there some sort of high temp glue or silicon that doesn't need to bake on that you guys use?

I've tried This but the problem is, it needs to bake on and the insert just pushes out before it gets hot anough to do its job, and by then it's too late.

I've been messing around with this for FAR to long now and I just want to ride the god damn bike GAHHHH

Cheers

Look inside the insert. There should be a screw inside. Bet yours fell out.

The exhuast-putty will harden after some time, but you can help it on its way with a hairdryer :)

Some hightemp rtv-type stuff might be better. You could also drill a holw throug the exhasut and db-killer and use a bolt and nut.

I let the exhaust putty sit for 2 days and let the bike run at idle for a a good wile and it still wasn't hot anough for it so set, so I'll think I'll look into the high temp rtv stuff. Do you know what kind of temperatures the exhaust gets to? Thanks

I don't see how this can have any effect on your riding. What difference does it make to your riding or the aesthetics of of the bike if the quiet insert is 'out' by a couple of mm's?

Mine is exactly the same. I remember you had the problem of the hole/bolt lining up and had to drill a little bit out for it to fit (as did I)....this little gap must be the difference.

Well true isn't really affecting anything but it is leaking from round the edges. Just bugs me having to keep going back and fiddling with it after spending quite a large amount of money.
