Question Exhaust bracket pics, mine is ghetto rigged

So i purchased this bike from a guy, and he said its a full two bros exhaust. Which i can tell it is, but...the exhaust is attached to the rear footpeg with 'ZIPTIES' thats right zipties. ill post a pic when i get home to show you what i mean.

The rear pegs are stionary and do not fold up, is this right? as my buddy a
has an 06 RR. Any help would be appreciated

Thx

stationary footpegs are for stunting.

You have a split-seat frame correct?
Factory pegs w/ exhaust mounting location on the '01-03 look like this...

yea, they are definitely stationary
Can never trust a seller who says they never stunted huh? lol

Here's the pic


from what my buddy told me. those are definitely fabricated
Its burning lower fairing, or melting it, is a nicer way to put it.
Was told its a two bros from some Honda ATV

Yeah that is jacked up. Your main problem is that mid pipe. Get ride of that mid pipe and get a factory passenger peg and you will be all set.

The SIMPLEST solution is to replace the linkpipe and end can, buy an OEM footpeg hanger and it'll fit well and not melt your fairings.

If you can't afford this then you will need a new link pipe, tap a hole into the footpeg hanger and bolt in an exhaust strap, with the new link pipe the exhaust should come out at the normal positon allowing you to strap it to the hanger. You will probably need to cut off the current mounting tab on the can and possibly use a pipe expander or adaptor to ge the can to fit your link pipe.


Seriously though, you NEED a new link pipe, that one is dire.


Also, your chicken strips are ****ING huge, pilot powers can handle a hell of a lot lean, make the most of them .

Yea, im not sure why the guy never really cared about it. it sounds like a beast, but it looks tacky to me. Any advice on an aftermarket exhaust?
