Thanks Graham,
Looks ideal - 3 days to go so hopefully stays a reasonable cost.

Cheers,
Andy

I don't know why my exhaust bracket is different if young Mick (Green1) says his was a welded plate on his F2 (unless his wasn't an F2 🙄🙄🙄)
Has anyone else got a separate bracket like mine?
Im a Nurse, trust me, this won't hurt.....much !!!

Thanks Ross, yes, I'm convinced now that the separate bracket is an F2 thing.

looking at Andys photos there doesn't seem to be a provision for a footrest on the loop So must be earlier than the f2  Plus the angle of the loop is different to to the f2 bolt through loops The bottom tube of the loop of bolt through runs parallel to silencer where as the welded loop has to have the welded bracket to obtain a parallel run to hold the silencer IMO  Ross

Ah yes, the footpeg was on the swing arm on some of the earlier models.

I thought the loop was introduced to mount the footrests for a more comfortable ride for pillion riders  Looks like Andys loop is only to hold the silencer?? Ross

My 400F is 1976 and has the frame hoops with bolt on bracket. According to the frame number it ties in with a late UK spec F model following the relocation of the rear footrests to the frame hoops. 🤔

Just found a crappy picture of my 400 and it turns out my frame was like Julies and the previous owner had mounted the exhaust in a bit of an oddball way.
Mine was a UK 75 I think  :-\

Hi,
Mine is a 1975 and the loop does just hold the exhaust, footrests on the swingarm.
Whether this is normal / correct or not I have no idea - the bike came as a basket case and she has had a very hard life by the look of it.
Every part has been beaten, bodged or replaced so nothing surprises me!
The frame had been powdercoated already so can't see if there are signs of modification to the frame though.
Hopefully once I get a silencer it'll fit OK somehow.

Now the bike runs I'll have loads of questions on bits to sort properly so hopefully won't bore everyone too much.

Cheers,
Andy
