Default Exhaust mounting brackets - Advice

As some of you may have seen my knuck is coming along and I'm ready to mount my exhausts!

I've had very little luck on the past with using the brackets to mount effectively, they don't tighten well or they're just plain shite. I've searched online and not had any real luck. Can any of you fine gents tell me any tips/methods to mounting.

For info; my rear head pipe fits at a 45 degree angle, swings around and sits flush and snug just kissing the top of the thread for my clutch arm, one will do, but as it's a 45 degree twist, howd you best nail that down? I've got some good gauge brackets I can use for the pipes.. but how to get them to stay secure on the frame is beyond me.. I can rebuild a carb mag etc but brackets nope!!

Any advice welcome, thanks guys.

Rhys

about the strongest & neatest way would be to
1) weld a tab on the frame where the exhaust pipe passes close to the frame,
2) weld a threaded bung to back side of exhaust in line with tab,
3) bolt together,
4) job done

Thank you sir, I'm trying my best not to weld my immaculate knuck frame, same reason I spent a small fortune on a fancy sprung solo seat bracket which i didn't have to weld! it may come to it but if I can avoid I will.

Thanks again!

Paughco makes a split frame clamp, part number 523:

They use these in their bolt on exhaust systems. There is a channel in one pipe and a strap goes from the clamp to the other pipe. It works well.

if you don't want to weld to the frame just use these brackets instead of welding the tab's on. still weld bungs to the pipes, same end result & still easy on the eye, these clamps are pretty good, well made & very strong...………..

If you don't want to weld.. use what Pete says above.

that's what I have on my 76 and the Pan.
I even use that to bolt the massive bag of tools (framed) that I have on my 76 - Same bag I had on the Pan when I took it to Flanders.
And I'm using these clamps again on the new Pan build - for exhausts and bag.

What I do is cut to length an old tyre inner tube and then put the bracket over it.
That does 2 thing - first stops it damaging the paint, second also offers more grip for the bracket not to move.

then you can make a spacer from the bracket to your exhaust clamp, as unfortunately they don't make these as a P clamp.

Here's the type I use when I can't drill/weld the frame. I think they have a cleaner look and can be adjusted as needed. https://www.speedwaymotors.com/All-I...yABEgKVrvD_BwE
