My muffler is leaking at the bracket to the frames,It seems to be sweating out oil????Ive replaced the head gasket and thats dry.The muff was looked at by a custom bike welder and he couldent see any thing obvious, but it leaks on the camera gear...How have you all fixed this problem?? Im thinking of having it brased but heard it will still crack in the future????. I dont think this is the original zimmer/vario build.
Help

Mine did the same thing.What happened was I never cut down the size of the coupling from the header to the pipe.I did not see instructions on that part.I only found out when I talked to my Rep about it that it was a certain lenght.Too long puts stress on the mount and vibes cause it to crack.Mine was leaking what looked like thick black tar blobs.
