Need a few stock exhaust clamps/bands

Was wondering if anyone has some laying around? I could use 3 of them.

Thanks!

Weren't the stock bands spot welded on? And FWIW I have quite a few aftermarket bands laying around if that could work for you.

The stock bands were not welded on. They have a funny configuration that makes them kinds hard to remove, as I remember you have to spread them apart quite a lot.

Gotcha, good to know. I never actually ran the OEM exhaust on any of my RC51's, but received a couple sets of them as spares with the bikes I purchased. I guess I never really looked at them closely enough...

Yeah, the clamps that you always had to replace cuz the bolt would get heat 'seized' in and would snap off.

Thanks guys. I randomly found a guy with a stock header that he is giving to me. I will get it in a few days and if missing the clamps I'll let you know. Thank you again for the offer and will pick up your extras if need be.

Ugh, I'm an idiot, I was thinking the hanger bands all this time... I've had those header clamp bolts seize many times.
