Wow! Two pages! good stuff.
While I have everyones' attention on this, do the Spec ii s require an o-ring or sealant in the flange, or will a spooge diaper doo?

Do you use RTV (1) between cylinder and pipe flange, (2) between pipe flange and pipe, or (3) both 1 and 2?

Hi guys. So i also have spec 2 classic pipes and a. Rear set from hvccycle
They are mounted direct to the stock footpeg hangers? Just before the passenger pegs,
Just the bolt with a shim? On each side and a nylock. Everything bolted tight.

I need some sort of rubber in Between?
Its just that the fitmenr of the pipe kind of sucks, so one side the pipe is sitting nice and high, can hang on the mounting point and boltet.
The other side however the pipe needs to be liftet in the mounting point as much as the hole allows, so they sit parallel to each other and looks right from behind, if this makes sense  my english is getting bad ( practice)

2 spooge diapers ready to go. Filled the space in each flange with hi temp copper RTV about 1/4" deep. Going to wait 30 mins as someone recommended and hopefully my spooge problems will be solved!

Great thread.. lots of good stuff.
 But a question.. where do you order a set of Spec II pipes?
Their website has no link to order online.. do I have call them?
Also they list the black R5 pipes for $299. That's pretty cheap. Wondering if it's a old site and not updated.

Update:

Ok..I called and as I suspected the site is static and not current.
Talked to Gary..nice guy. He's sending me via email all the info.

HaHaHa!   :celebrate:   It's as if you went back in time!  The thing is it seems kinda plausible to a newbie like me, so it kind of sucks you in...

I think I've seen someone report the neighborhood of $850 for Classics.

You might get even better results by cleaning the actual pipe very well with brakekleen and a scotchbrite pad or wire brush, then, apply a bead of sealant around the pipe so when inserted, the bead on pipe will stay near, but inside the outer end of the flange and seal any gaps from the pipe pushing the sealant you put in the flange being pushed in unevenly.  :twocents:

The rubber is to dampen vibration and prevent welds from cracking due to stress.  I used some pieces of rubber from inner tubes which I folded until I got the right thickness. On the frame side of the mounting tab I used pieces cut from a rubber and foam floor mat so the foam conforms to the hole in the bracket and the rubber cushions the washer.  Works pretty good, so far.
