exhaust band broken
Hi folks,

An exhaust band has broken (18373-ML8-003) on my 86 aspy,and are not now available, and I thought I could just purchase a conventional exhaust pipe clamp, as there are no leaks.
Could you let me know, what the diameter of the pipe is please? Many thanks, its at the end of the header pipe, that fits in the convertor from twin to single.

Cheers,
Robbie

you could try these http://www.ebay.com/itm/Honda-Gold-Wing-...e0&vxp=mtr


Looks like it could be 1.75" but thats a guess
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

I haven't measured the OD of the place where that clamp goes, but I know I've seen a lot of listings for plain steel and stainless steel band clamps on Ebay and Amazon. You could even get a longer one and redo one end to shorten it, maybe get a 3" wide one and split it down the middle.
