I've got low mount termi's with aluminium brackets. The mounting was a little stressed on the stock rearsets (Termi's fitted by Frasers), but there is too much gap on the CycleCat rearsets. I could force the fit, but it would be flexing both the exhausts and rearset exhaust hangers.

Could I fit some of the strap-style exhaust mounts? Similar to the hi-mount system, I think. If so, where can I get the mounting straps? (I'm in Perth). I don't have the equipment to rebend the existing brackets without damaging them.

Any ideas would be much appreciated, I don't want the bike off the road for too long.

Thanks.

(and changing the rear brake line was the sh*t of a job I expected it to be :mad: I hate brake fluid)

I'll see if I can find a digital camera (mine had an incident 10m underwater and is no longer with us).

The current exhausts sit too wide of the bike, so I have almost a 20mm gap on one side between the exhaust hanger and the bracket plate.

The bracket plate unbolts from the CF, so I can try to bend it around, but it is also pretty sturdy, and will take some effort to bend. A 20mm spacer will look ugly.

Geoff, you could try contacting Chris Kelly at CA Cycleworks and ask him - I seem to remember that there was something differing with the cycle cat rear sets depending on hi or low mount... Other than that, pics would help!

I've loosened all of the exhaust clamps and am getting closer, but still have to elongate the holes in the brackets to get them on. I really feel it shouldn't be this hard...

It's just as well Joe was there to gently explain which is my left hand and which is my right. I didn't listen, of course. It was only when I looked at the photo on the CycleCat site that I realised I was trying to put the right-hand clip-on (and I read off the packaging that it was the right-hand) on the left of the bike :)

Had a bit of a problem with the banjo bolts on the GP style master cylinders, but we rotated them up a bit (now have to bleed them if tying back the levers all day doesn't work). I also discovered that the bolt on the middle clamp of the top triple was half-way out and that I have some very wierd wiring additions behind the headlight (looks like a ceramic resistor package). Also, my instrument cluster has "show pony" written on it in white pen (it was Fraser's ex-demo, but...). All in all, an educational experience.

I've still got some work to do to put it back together, and also to get the exhausts on, but it's looking good - much more aggressive styling.

Well, the packet said 'right-side', and as far as I was concerned I was on the right-side of the bike (from a certain point of view), and I thought I had some cogent arguments for why the 'cyclecat' logo would face forward, but... yes, you were right...
