Found something that bothers me(sato CF)

Hello I am wondering if anyone can help me I had recently purchased a 06 rc51 with a set of sato banzai carbon fiber cans. Going through the bike I had to return it to stock exhaust to pass the Canadian RIV and be able to register the bike. As I was taking the pipe off I noticed the right can strap was tighter than the left maybe because of heat do to expansion and contraction as the pipe was blued right up to the canister. The strap came off after being very gentle in the process. Then I noticed a "crack per say" hiding under the strap. Is this a problem with CF canisters? I have heard that the the vtwin thump can destroy CF if you don’t watch them carefully and keep them well packed. Anyways I was wondering if this is an issue and if there is any way to purchase sleeves and banding if its as bad as i fear... I also plan to repack them just to be safe.

Thoughts guys? Has this happened to anyone else? Anyone with a old Sleeve kicking around for sale?

Hell I have pics but looks like i need 10 posts to attach..

Yes it is very important to monitor c/f cans. The exhaust pulse of the vtwin will punch holes in the sleeves if left to long without repacking.

If your cans are already cracking, it maybe to late to save them. But you mabybe in luck, Duckhunter was talking about one day being able to make replace c/f Sato sleeves. Talk to him and see if he can help.

It happens. I personally would never put CF cans on a twin and especially a big twin. Frankly I don't like them on any bike. Not as durable as metal.

Ya, I know. Just answering one of your questions. Plus giving a personal opinion (as lots of people still like and go with CF cans).

Where in Canada are you?
