On the way to work this morning, I started to hear a light rattle. I wasn't engine related so I figured I would check it when I got to the office. I made the last turn (a right hander) before entering the parking lot and heard a scratching/dragging sound. WTF? ??? I look back and my exhaust is now going to the side of my bike instead of up and back. I pulled into the parking lot and found that the bolt holding the exhaust bracket to the passenger peg vibrated loose. I walked back over to the corner and found my bracket but no bolt. Zip Ties Saved the Day!! :dblthumb: We had some zip ties in the office so I used a couple to hold the exhaust bracket to the passenger peg for the ride home. Now I remember why its important to always carry a small package of zip ties in the tail of your bike. You never know when a fastener is going to come loose and you need a zip tie to hold an exhuast bracket, fairing, windsheild, etc in place until you can get somewhere to make a proper repair.
