    I noticed my slip ons wiggle badly on both sides and don’t see any clamps to tighten(it just has springs).While running I can feel lots of exhaust leaking from joints, so much so it’s uncomfortable on my feet while riding.Are there supposed to be gaskets at these joints? Noticed on the V+H website that they discontinued this system.Anybody have any fixes for this situation? I don’t want to have to buy another system.Thanks.

    you could seal it up with exhaust paste but it can be messy, if the slip ons go over the main exhaust far enough you can cut 4 narrow slots around the slip ons and then use an appropriate sized exhaust clamp to fix it on securely

    If you decide to use a hose clamp to do this get a good one, the barrel-bolt design, which should be available at your local speed shop, or possibly a better-equipped auto parts store. You of course can find them online, too. They provide a better, tighter circumferential seal.

    If you make the pipe slots, be-sure that you don't cut them too-long.
