Has anyone got a collar for where the exhaust goes into the cylinderhead that I can buy off them. The one on my custom rusted apart coming home from Cardiff yesterday and it got a bit noisy as the flanges had nothing to push against.The one I mean has a flair on it and fits over the pipe.Not the one the bolts fit through. Syd.
Thanks Mike,I've had a look on the parts list Dave and it is a complete mystery to me. If you look at any pictures of down pipes they have a flared end where it goes into the cylinder head and this collar touches that flared bit. Syd.
I think he means the COLLETS. they sit in between the exhaust clamp flange and the raised portion at the end of the down pipes. When you tighten the flange it pushes on the collet which pushes on the downpipe and crushes the crush gasket.

It is a motad and they are colletts.The downpipes are stainless that I bought a year ago but the collett on the left has fallen apart. Mike has called around with two.They are bigger than the ones on it but I'm hoping to hacksaw it down to size. Thanks guys...I must learn how to take photos and then how to put them on the site. Syd.
