I am thinking the same thing. I am going to use my Murray's pipes on the machine I use in the winter and wherever I have welded the exhaust in the past rusts faster.
The Murray pipes are the right size to fit snugly into the Harley mufflers I have so using the Harley clamps there shouldn't be an issue.
But they are really loose on both original headers and the new set from Silver's. The difference looks to be about 1/8" so I can easily make adapters out of a piece of exhaust pipe to fill the space. I really don't want to use U-bolt muffler clamps this time. Anyone have any suggestions about suitable clamps?
Also, any ideas about how to keep them from rusting when they salt the roads? (BTW, another reason I don't want to weld is so I can replace them easily if they do rust out).
