Word! I kinda of like the clean look but I do want flushmounts next. Although, now that you mention it and now that ive been riding it for a couple of months, maybe its time to customize a bit....

Oleg232000 Quick update. Totally threw out the Two Brothers all together. Literally as i was taking it apart it crumbled in my hands. ****en cheap crap. Or just carbon sucks as pipes. At least full carbon. So found these sweet titanium Akrapovic pipes for a steal. Sound great, fit well, and look great.

Wow i just finally figured it out. I out ran like 3 cops in one day. Ridiculously fast. Cant believe I didnt know this before

Sabotage PRM stands for Pro Race Mode... This will turn your bike into a full race spec machine. Here is a detailed video on YouTube of how to turn it on. But please make sure you ride with care after activating it. You can gain up to 60HP to the wheel which can became dangerous for newer riders...

I tried cutting an inch off as stated, I tried twisting it, like you did and all the repairs fell apart over time.
Yeah I know it wont last. But i daily it so I need it running. I am currently in the market for a another exhaust. If anyone has anything they want to sell, hit me up!

Aikuken If you shorten it, you'll displace the bolt point on the bike forward by same distance. Without further engineering You wouldn't be able to bolt the can to the subframe.

I think you'll be better off getting a band of material around the broken river points, and then riveting that band to the rest of the pipe.

I would notice. And I would point and laugh and publicly shame him for such a thing.

Oleg232000 So racked my brain yesterday solving this. Apologies for stating rivets can be reused, the equivalent to saying Im going to re use the bullet i just fired.

Anyway, after disassembling it I realized that the collar through which the rivets enter and proceed into the carbon can etc, is actually flexible. So I rotated it so that the rivet entry points are far from the original torn through points, and proceeded to drill new holes through the carbon and then the metal base. Worked like a charm, especially after I learned what a ****en rivet tool is. Courtesy of Harbor Freight, which btw, is the cheapest place to buy tools at least in CA.

Thank for everyones help. Although another problem did arise, which is the ****en torx bolts are soft like butter. Stripped two of them, and I was using such lite pressure its ridiculous. I dont know if this is another 2 bros quality control issue, or just these torx bolts. Going to have to drill through at least one of them, but they still holding the end caps on for now soooo....tbd

ZdaMan Don't blame carbon cans. My 13 year old Termignoni cans look just as good as day one.

tigertim20 shorten both the cans. shortening them isnt going to hurt.

I shortened my cans by 85mm.

andrewstclair I did not mean that. What I meant was "No, (forgot the comma) rivets are one time use." Grammar is key. You get me now?
