    I have the pictures somewhere. I ran across them recently. Let me see if I can get them posted up.

    I welded a bracket to each head pipe which then connects each head pipe to a front motor/iso mount bolt.

    All that leverage from the head pipe and muffler no longer is
    applied to the exhaust port alone.

    Downside is that the welded strap
    captures the exhaust nut on the head pipe.

    What kicker do you have on the bike? Looks nice and long.

    To be clear the pictures are not of my bike. They are pictures that were posted previously on the forum. I can't seem to find the original thread at this time so I thought to repost them for this discussion.

    This may also be off topic but as i have suffered two exhaust header breakages in the same place on the same pipe , i have S type pipes and the left header splits at the weld as it enters the head , my ears pricked up when i saw the reference to crush washers , i have a plain steel washer , should i have crush or copper washers in there ? ,
    all advice welcome , Colin
