    OK, $80 for two straps plus shipping is a lot more than I wanted to spend here. Any ideas for replacement straps?
    For a temp fix I'm going w/ really long hose clamps just to support them a tad while I source some new oval clamps.

    Ugh...I know...it's the KLR rider in me coming out. :huh

    I'm wide open for suggestions. :ear

    Describe the shape (round, oval, etc.) and diameter of the mufflers - I may have a lower cost solution for you.

    They are oval in shape, measured 37cm in diameter and a pic is coming shortly.

    *edit* I must say, Kenny Darvin @ Alternate Cycle is on the ball. He emailed me back Sunday night and followed again yesterday seeing if he could help. Impressive!
