how to fill the gap: aftermarket slip on pipes

Hi all,

I have the Adam bomb slip on pipes and they leave a gap between the end of the pipe and the exhaust tip. I am sure this is the case with the other slip on aftermarket pipes.

Has anyone found something to close that gap and stop the exhaust from getting through there and onto the saddle bags?

Thanks
John

Not supposed to leave a gap, never mind leak exhaust fumes! No gap on my D&D's, and no leak either. Did you install them yourself?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Yes, I installed them. The gap is between the end of the pipe where they had been cut off and re-cored, and the beginning of the exhaust tip. I cant see how there could not be a gap since the exhaust tip is bolted into a flange on the end of the pipe. The gap is there on stock pipes it just doesn't have exhaust coming through it because the stock pipes have the long end on them that protrudes out of the exhaust tips.

Hope that makes sense.

Ahh, I misunderstood. I thought you had a gap between the exhaust pipes and mufflers themselves. I don't have a solution for you (my pipes don't even have tips), but hopefully someone else chimes in shortly.

Thanks do you have this gap with the D&Ds? If you don't have tips does the pipes extend past the saddle bags?

Thanks

The D&Ds are one piece - they look like this:

There were others who either did the Atom Bombs or the home made work and ran into this problem previously so I KNOW it's out on this forum somewhere. Try running a search on this forum for it
