Default Exhaust

Hey peeps, quick question for you

Just fitted a new end can to my bike and it seems to have a small air leak on the link pipe, will this cause any damage/issues? It seems to ride fine just wondering if I need to take it all off and stick more sealant on?

wont cause any problems except maybe extra noise but could be an MOT fail and is definitely a bit suspect

Won't cause any problems, just a few pops and bangs on the over run, when you shut off the throttle.

Silicon sealant will work

Many thanks for the reassurance I shall pop on some more sealant on at some point. Thankfully no need to worry about a MOT for a few years yet

Send for some of this,

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GRANVILLE...IAAOSwuxFY2Sme

It's cheap and the Dog's Danglies for sealing exhausts joints.I used it when I put a cheap Chinaprovich end-can on last year.No leaks and still going strong

The straps around the end-cap chattered a bit so squeezed some under them as well and that cure that.

It's water based as well so keep a wet rag handy so you can wipe the area clean after application.Sets pretty fast and super bonds when the exhaust heats up
