    Exhaust hanger?

    I'd like to bin the rear pegs, any advice on where I can buy a hanger for an 01 mille?

    Hi Solstice,

    There's this carbon one ebay, it looks very reasonable to me. I bought a set of carbon hangers for my 06 model from ebay recently, they look good on the bike and are strong and obviously lighter than the metal versions.

    The problem with the carbon fibre ones such as this (which I have) is that they flex toooo much, just dont offer enough outright strength.

    I run a 5mm thick custom fab aluminium plate (painted black) behind my carbon outer to stop the flex so you cant see it anyway.

    Just beware that some of these carbon ones WILL not be strong enough!!

    Cheers Pete

    Ah Ozmille that's a good point, mine are reasonably thick and pretty stiff, but the hangers are much longer on your original shape Mille's so i assume flex does come into the equation although Carbon fibre is generally a stiff brittle material rather than bendy.

    "Carbon fiber is very strong when stretched or bent, but weak when compressed or exposed to high shock (eg. a carbon fiber bar is extremely difficult to bend, but will crack easily if hit with a hammer)". - Wikepedia
