Three U'tards are on a trip from Salt Lake City to Yellowknife... actually on their way back now (I'm stuck at work in HI). Just out of Yellowknife a tip over at the gas station resulted in smashing the windshield on an R1150GS... cliopped the pegs on another bike. Any help in acquiring a replacement would be greatly appreciated... New, Used, etc...

They are planning on heading west on Hwy 1 towards Laird River then southwest on 7, then 77 - 97 and back around to Fort Nelson - Dawson Creek... see route map.

Wheelies are never juvenile. They always demonstrate the height of maturity.

Dangit, another pathetic call for help.
I broke my muffler off. Does anyone know where I could get some kind of exhaust hanger strap like you might find on aftermarket exhausts? Local shops just want to sell me a whole new can. Wallet says Uh Uh. Commons sense says I just need a patchup and repair job. And the flange welded up proper.
So, I need to find a place that will weld the flange on the exhaust pipe like it ought to have been, and also some kind of strap. Stainless is probably going to last longer than aluminum. I can bang something temporary together, but maybe someone has some ideas where to get something more substantial?
Looks like this right now:


Should look like this. notice the mounting flange is welded on the pipe, but mine is just floating, allowing too much wiggle, which broke the mount on the can.


Something like this could probably replace the broken mount on the can?
But where to find it? I can make one probably out of a silicon oven mitt and a bit of stainless strap. But I don't know where to get the strap.


Thoughts?

The super Enduro has muffler hangers like that on both sides...you can order them as OEM parts. I think Rocky Mountain ATV has KTM parts now.
