Muffler connect rubber insert - alternative?
« on: March 31, 2021, 09:08:29 PM »
Just found that inserts in rubber connecting muffler ends on CB500/550K are broken into pieces. Rubbers are still good.
Honda sells it as kits (rubber+insert) - did anyone find good alternative to OEM inserts?

Looks to me kind of plastic or asbestos ring?

Maybe thick gasket material would do the job?

Any advice welcome

I can't get my after market pipes to line up  well enough to get that rubber on properly. 😳

Originals are just as awkward

Steris, Sohron's description has helped me a lot. http://forums.sohc4.net/index.php?topic=82323.msg925422#msg925422new My set is OEM though.
