Nah, I use shop rage & duct tape. Real absorbent, and the composition of the material lets my skin breath.



Also looks pretty cool, like Hugo Chaves' anti-demon drawers.

This seems to good to be real....is this a hoax?



It seems early for April fools, but if it's real, it's reminiscent of what MO used to be....flame on!!!

If it's a joint I'd use Ultra High Temp Copper Silicone on the male end of the pipes and fit them both together, if it's a crack or broken weld then a tin can soft patch and hose clamps will work as good as anything. If there's a noticable gap you could use muffler tape, the kind you soak first then wrap around the male end to almost the i.d of the female end, slide them in (ahem) tighten them up and run the bike to get the tape to harden.



One final thought if all else fails try to find some graphite re-inforced shoe-string valve packing and stuff that in there. If there's a shipyard or repair facility or plumming shop near by they should have some

The things are bricks: you can chip 'em but they still hold up. 21 years later (86 model) and gosh, I had to sweat out how to get the surface rust off the little bracket that holds the muffler can on...it's almost boring.

Default What exactly is the problem?

You don't need any sealant. You need a chunk of 00 steel wool. After the carbon and crap around the exhaust joints starts to get annoying , rub the steel wool on it till it's gone. There's a service bulletin from HD (8585-77FX) for the 77 Shovehead on that with more detail. If the noise is bothering you, get some earplugs. Your bike will run much better with them in. (HD bulletin 9934-77FX)
