  • exhaust slider

    Who here would be interested in such a product? The current design is a ring that would clamp to the front exhaust end cap. So it will blend with the lines but be a bit thicker so it will stick out a little and grind down instead of your $400 can. Let me know what you think.

    Look something like this when installed.

      pretty interesting idea there.............make one up and see how it fits.......what about temperature? what type of material will it be made of?
      2002 TLR B/W . Yoshimura bolt on Titanium cans. Yosh box remap. Joe V airbox mod. plug in TRE. 17/41 sprockets. Zero Gravity double bubble screen. fan switch. HyperPro steering damper. Extreme Graphic Top Gun undertail. Ohlins rear shock.

      Gear: Arai Quantum f. Joe Rocket GPX 1pc suit. Alpinestars Super Tech boots. Alpinestars GP-1 gloves----always wear it all

              He will be machining them from aluminum. I'll try to get a link to his site to see what else he makes. He is the one that made my handle bar risers.

                sounds as if you don't like it.

                  Keep in mind what your cans are made of... you will have to engineer the tolerances and fixturing to the can taking into account for the differences in coefficient of thermal expansion. That way it won't fall off or worse...crimp your cans.

                  You may even need to make several designs based on what material the can is made of. Therefore you may need to make the slider out of similar material that you are fixturing it to so it doesn't corrode between them.


                  examples of coefficients of expansion:


                  Aluminum: .000013 per deg F

                  stainless steel 304: .0000096 per deg F

                  Titanium: .0000047 per deg F


                  You get the idea


                  I know... I'm an engineering nerd.

                    Would it leave a mark when taken off?

                      Great idea! I would make them out of the plastic though with something under them to protect them from the heat

                        well... dissimilar metals... when clamped together.. will corrode eachother..

                        as far as thermal expansion goes... you'll have to design the slider and do the math to find the tolerances. You are the only one that can answer the "will it leave a mark?" question.

                          I'm sure it will leave a lesser mark than would be made by sliding the can across the pavement though hehe

                            Good points LiononaLeash. My yosh came with a strip to go under the clamp. This would take care of the dissimilar problem and also compress enough to compensate for the different expansion rates.

                              That guy will be busy, there are so many shapes (diameter) and sizes of exhaust cans for our different bikes....
