XV 1100 Exausht flange... is this normal?

PostAuthor: Gator_08 » Fri May 19, 2017 12:37 pm

Hi guys. Long story short my bike is making a ticking sound and the Exausht flange that connects the Exausht to the from of the motor via two bolts seems to be not as tight as it should be. The bolts that connect the Exausht to the motor are showing quite a bit of thread. How ever my bike doesn't make the ticking sound until it gets hot. I'll include some pictures so you guys can see. It's kind of hard to explain. Any help would be much appreciated. I also included the links if you can't see the pics.

The gap and the threads showing is normal. You could have an exhaust leak however.

Might want to try replacing the gasket. http://www.partzilla.com/parts/search/Y ... parts.html
These are usually available on EBay.
