hey riders i have an exhaust leak on my D&D slip-on near the can. i got the clamp at the tweleve o'clock position and i got it as tight as i can get it. i think if i turn the screw any more i will strip it out and then i am realy screwed. it is only a little leak but i know that there is not supposed to be any air coming out so if anyone has any ideas on how i can fix this, please help a rider out. thanks. :bigthumb

Im not 100% sure on this, but with my Hindle exhaust, I put some High Temp RTV Silicone (the red stuff) on the inside of all the joints. No leak's what so ever.

Yup, when I installed mine it did the same thing. I also used the high temp rv weld just like sasquatch and it worked like a charm. Any auto parts store has the stuff.

I'd look for Muffler Mender before High-temp RTV .....

that sounds like a great idea too. although i dont realy know where i would find that but i will look for it for future refrence. i did try the hi temp RTV and it worked like a charm. 8)

Cool! I used it because the guys at a muffler shop told me that is all they use to seal leaks when they install exhausts in cars.

do you take the can off and put the rv weld directly on the mid pipe & then put the can back on or can you just slide the clamp down the midpipe and put the rv weld around the end of the can directly under where the clamp would be on the midpipe . i'm thinking the pressure of the clamp should make a nice gasket by pressing the rv weld into the gaps on the end of can.

Yes but follow the directions on the rv weld. It is just like you asked. Basically put it on after you applied the rv weld but do not tighten fully, wait an hour and then tighten all the way if I remember right. It was on the label though and it worked like a charm because there were no leaks after that.
