exhaust hanger bracket?

Postby motojedi on Tue Feb 07, 2006 12:03 pm

Does anyone have a nice looking exhaust hanger to replace the stock foot peg? I would want it to still locate the muffler in the same place as stock.

Thanks. Is there a thread already there about an exhaust hanger (I looked) that I've missed or do you mean I should just keep an eye out in that area?

There are a couple of exhaust hangers available for the the K1200S/R for around a $100- a carbon fiber piece from Pack parts which is used on most of not all of the Powercups race bikes, second is a new hanger just released by Evoluzione (a vendor on this site) which is a very simplistic but effective looking design. I made my own from a simple piece of aluminum (for around $2) which you can see if some of my posts.

Thanks guys. I'll take a look at the Pack parts one. That evilouzione one looks kinda chincy. It appears to rely on the pipe connection to provide lateral support.

Knowing Ken's stuff (my KR is has basically everything he offers for the KR) nothingn is chincy- I'm sure it works as advertised...I just think it's a little pricey...Northern Monkey off the K.com site was going to sell his Packpart C/F hnager-might want to send him an email.

Not to argue (as I know this isn't the place) but with the exception of the little aluminum block that attatches to the frame; the rest of that "hanger" could be purchased at a hardware store. And since it has rod-end bearings on both ends, it wouldn't offer any lateral support. If you disconnected the muffler from the pipe, it would dangle around as if suspended by a string. I've seen lots of quality parts offered by Evilouzione but this doesn't appear to be one of them. Just my $.02

Can anyone confirm whether or not the PackParts C/F hanger works with any muffler or just the Lazer/Powercup version ?

Agreed you can build the exhaust bracket for a couple of bucks (as I did) and here's a link to some pics of you scroll down, you'll find a closeup of my homemade bracket. BTW, NorthernMonkey is here on this site...

motojedi,

you are correct that if you disconnect the end of the muffler there is no lateral support. of course, if you disconnect the swingarm, it doesn't have much support either :D

anyway, my point is that it was designed to be a trick, simple support to allow the removal of the stock brackets. we've been running them on bikes for several months with no issues.
regards,

For what it's worth, I installed the Evoluzione exhaust hanger yesterday, & so far, so good. The exhaust band clamp that connects the can to the header seems to keep everything rigid enough. As for the cost, the hardware may be relatively inexpensive, but the time that it would take to conceptualize, fabricate, install & test the bracket should be considered. Personally, i think that it's a pretty good deal.

I have the Evoluzione bracket holding a Remus carbon fibre muffler, and it works just fine.
