Can a cracked Termi slip on be repaired?

Can these carbon fiber mufflers be repaired? Check the pics, there are cracks on both sides of the mounting bracket.

I've already replaced them with something else so it's not like I need these slip ons.

I've no experience working with carbon fiber so I know nothing about repairing it. I was hoping to sell them before I became aware of the damaged one.

Cool ... I had no idea. I'm not much of a carbon fiber fan so I've never even looked into any of this.

Thank you!


... now, I just need to locate some on this side of the Atlantic Ocean ...

I had no idea it would crack like that. I always liked the look of carbon fiber but not so much the price tag.
You should be able to find something on this side of the pond. We're in motorcycle heaven here!

you can also get carbon sleeves from here - PJ Engineering - Home Page - Manufacturers & suppliers of High Temp. Carbon Fibre, Stainless & Titanium Tubes and Performance Motorcycle Exhaust parts in Lincolnshire, UK

just measure what you have and go from there. some mufflers have an aluminium sleeve inside the carbon, which helps the long term durability.

So I take it the obvious is how they are replaced? Drill the rivets, disassemble the cannister, install the end pieces and guts on the new tube, mark/drill new rivet holes in the new tube, and install new pop rivets to assemble?

I can only see one other set of questions this generates ... will the new tube look a lot different than the muffler that did not receive a new tube? Or is there a method of refinishing both mufflers canisters so the old one looks the same as the new one?

Nor I. Which makes me feel even better that I bought these .... (pic #1 are my slip ons and my cat .... but the yellow Supersport is not my bike but it has the same slip ons that I bought for my 1996 900CR).

GPR Deeptone INOX slip ons with stainless link tubes and all required mounting hardware, and removable DB killers ($604.00 shipped free from Italy).

it sort of depends how they're made as to how they come apart, but you do just start by drilling out the rivets and see what happens. replacing both tubes with the same is the best way to make sure they match.

So if two new tubes are purchased we're looking at about $150 for the pair, as far as I can tell.

I suppose I can back burner that until I get the bike on it's wheels and running, along with a bit of new gear, and whatever the bike school/"M" endorsement on my license costs. Sure, why not. There's no real hurry I suppose.
