    Exhaust Clamps

    Hi all,

     

    My exhaust clamps have rusted (as everybody's, mind the previous owner of the bike mentioned it on this forum and doesn't seem to have done anything about it)

    No 12 I think but guessing I might as well do them all: https://www.fowlersparts.co.uk/parts/5843851/vfr800-crossrunner/exhaust-muffler

    I am not keen to pay Honda prices so is there anything to know about buying non-OEM, Ebay seller doesn't seem to specify one for 2015 Crossrunner, Wemoto doesn't have any specifically for the Crossrunner.

    Is it just a matter of measuring diameter with verniers and buying a clamp the right diameter or is there more to know?

    Thanks all.

    If they're the right size I can't see a problem. I'd recommend using a heat resistant silicone to seal the joint.

    Never used any sealant on any VFR exhaust clamps, indeed I thought they recommended not to, but I'm not sure where I got that from so happy to be proved wrong.  :028:

    I swapped the OEM can for a Scorpion and they recommended a small amount of silicone. The joints never leaked and when I had to take the Scorpion off last week the joint broke easily.

    I could easily be wrong m8, or maybe both work as I've never had a leak either. Who knows, certainly not me.

    Btw, my new DAM end can is due to arrive tomorrow.  :152:   :046:

    I put Mikalor high pressure clamps on mine.  The Honda ones rusted inside a couple of years, so why would I go for original.  Mikalor clamps are stainless, will not rust and can tightened to far higher torque - not that you need to in this case.
