Had an incident where the right hand exhaust clamp got hung up on a concrete curb.

This translated into the centerstand leg getting caught up also.

As a result, the right side header does not fit as tightly into the port and is noticeably louder.

The silencer ended up about 1 inch back from the left side.

Loosened up all components and re-set and re-clamped after bending slightly the r/s stay off the front of the case.

Have heard of using high temp sealant to rectify this but also saw this kit from ShropshireClassic:

Question is- has anyone used this kit and if so, how well does it work?

Thanks in advance comments and help.

At the moment, want to use the original pipe, even though it's pretty well dented along the bottom and tweaked out somewhat???

I installed it two weeks ago on my T140E 1979. Since then I have run 120 km on it and it works fine. My pipes were very worn and leaked a lot (bike has 170000 km on the clock so it is no surprise). Only problem was I drilled the holes without thinking that the balance pipe fouled the access when to fix the bolts. Set the holes approx as the left one on the picture (2, 6 and 10 aclock) and NOT drill a hole at the top as the inner one will be tricky to reach with the key. Anyone without balance pipe will have an easy work... Too bad they dont have a "finned look" but sometimes you must accept function before look.

Hiya JB - I used the original finned clamp (drilled at a slight angle. Then marked, drilled & tapped cylinder head at the exhaust port to accomodate a 5mm screw at each side (note wot Hakan says bout balance pipe). Fixed the finned clamp to the downpipe at the correct depth, smeared a little gasket cement - screw home to make a seal !! cost me 60 pence for the screws & not 60 for the kit - If ya sisters fitting it in her bikini I want some piccys laugh beerchug - smokey
