CMSL 500 Exhausts
« on: March 10, 2021, 09:02:50 PM »
Just fitted the replica 323 exhausts I got from CMSL last year (bike nearly done now!) and fit was generally good except for centre stand stop bracket on the lower exhaust is about 20mm too rearward - stand just about sits on the edge of the rubber stop (if you let the stand flick up, it pushes past rubber and clanks into the exhaust). I think I will have to make a plate to put the rubber on and screw to the exhaust bracket.
Anyone else experienced this issue?

Yep, I had to do just that, my stand missed the stop completely.

Same. Made a small plate to bring it back towards the front of the bike.

I had exactly same issue, just made a small extension plate if I remember
If you think there's light at the end of the tunnel it's usually another train !!

Well not great that, anyone contacted CMS and told them? maybe they'll replace all the No3 cylinder pipes  ;D ;D

I'll probably make a bracket if mine does it but I'm thinking of using the main stand clamp bolts instead of the exhaust.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it

It's quite a way out. Just made one tonight out of stainless - you need to put a 90 degree 2mm lip (along the front to back length off the plate) to strengthen the bracket (20mm x 60mm ish plate really) - to stop it flexing when the stand hits the rubber
