    Anybody had their exhaust bracket come free? I only noticed it while doing a quick check of the bike - that's one heavy lump of metal if it came off and hit a car.



    I've emailed the company I bought it off - it's about £38 of parts to fix that.

    When I changed my rear tire last time I noticed that bolt was loose.

    That would have been what happened to mine if I hadn't spotted it

    Yeap, happened to me a few months ago.   I usually check all the nuts and bolts when the bike gets a wash so I was surprised when I'm riding along and hear a grating sound.  Within seconds the sound stopped so I thought nothing more about it.  Next thing I'm getting waved down and headlight from oncoming traffic.  I stopped and walked round the bike.   At first glance, I didn't even notice that the exhaust was missing.  Looked back and saw it laying in the middle of the road. 

    Now,  I sometimes take the exhaust off to give it a good clear and polish but I am pretty confident I always put it back on and secure it properly.   However, a few days before the exhaust parted company with the bike I had a rear tyre fitted and the garage always "lift" the exhaust out of the way.   Did they not tighten the bolt properly?  I don't know.  :192:  But now I check their work before using the bike.   The main mount bolt went awol but the exhaust held on for a few second where it attaches to the down pipe.     

    The underside of the exhaust was slightly scratched as it dragged along the ground,   but once it is in place you can't see the damage.   

    I'll treat myself to a new exhaust one of these day.    I'm grateful the rear wheel did not rid over the exhaust as it may have thrown me off balance.

    Two weeks after the 48,000km service and after a long day ride I noticed two rear wheel nuts missing  :187: :086: :033: :114: :233:. All were there before I started the day ride.

    It pays to regularly check things.

    Maybe this exhaust nut needs to be a nylon lock nut then,..or would it be too close to the heat maybe??
    Failing that, the use of a split pin or R clip would keep it in place, assuming that the bolt is long enough.
