What's holding up this guy's cans??

Are they just cantilevered?

That's definitely a nice look, but ...

I say magic...but I predict a busted/cracked exhaust in the future.

See that bracket that drops down from the rearset to the midpipe? That's the only holding point I can see. If the can is light enough, I suppose you could get away with this set-up for a while. I wouldn't trust it too much. imo.

I couldn't even see that with the crappy CL pic...oh my old man eyes. I still wouldn't trust that setup for very long.

I don't see any mounts holding that exhaust up.
Looks like he is only holding it up by the joint part of the slip ons.
Hope he has those clamps tight!

No Novels!

Fricken GOLD battery!

looks like there are mounting points on the mids, the cans themselves are clamp type. my guess is that the owner got the BigBore system from the UK.

I think I see why the bike is still for sale.
He says to email him with your contact info and phone number and he'll call you back.
But then he says he doesn't respond to emails. Hmm...
Apparently he's weeding out more then the low-ballers and tire-kckers.

Look like SP Engineering cans to me. His ad says 'stock pipes' though. Very confusing.
