I got 7500 miles on my Black Jack pulled it out for a ride yesterday and the upper exhaust bracket was broke. Reinstalled stock pipe took it for a 26 mile ride today absolutly no loss in speed into wind 65-68 bmph wind at my back 68-72 bmph just not as loud. Think I'm staying stock.

Mine broke too. I just used a rubber bushing from an old car shock, washer, and a longer bolt from the hardware store.

good info to have on hand since I put the pipe on a few weeks back.

The roads we have here are mostly good, but what fun is sticking to the good ones all the time?

I had clearance problems with the Prima pipe before my accident and used it as an excuse to go with the NCY pipe. It's got a throatier sound and much better clearance.

edit- I welded the hole shut where the upper mount was on the prima canister. So its just the lower with the rubber bushing thats holding the exhaust.
