Some special hints for mounting the Sebring pipe
Recently, my manifold broke (red arrow on the pic). Of course, somewhere
in the middle of nowhere, but that's quite another story. As you can see on the picture,
I fixed the muffler to the luggage carrier with a rope I later found beside
the road ...
It took me some time
to find out, why this happened. The only thing I can imagine is this:
So what to do? Insert a suitable bush into Sebring's bore, with an outer diameter of
appr. 10 mm, and an inner diameter of 8-8.5 mm. That will help. I took a piece of
a copper tube I found in my stock.
- Sebring's mounting point at the pillion's footpeg (yellow arrow) has a 10 mm
bore, but the bolt's diameter is 8 mm. This of course will make the pipe move around that
- Due to movement, the aluminium clamp, fixing the pipe to luggage carrier
(blue arrow) broke, and I didn't notice it :( .
- This made the pipe move around the footpeg fixing point even more, and the
other day the manifold couldn't stand that, and ... knack.
