    Not repacked on a proper schedule? I don't recall the directions or anything stating a time period on repacking the exhaust.. or did I just miss that part? That is some real shizzz though. Thanks for the heads up.

    For one thing, those cans have cheap aluminum rivets holding them together. This is the part that is failing. These rivets are not meant for high heat. So, when heated repeatedly at high temps, they fail, any real surprise-NO!

    Luckily I still have my original box with the crap in it so I'll go back and check it out for a time schedule.

    Yea I bought my bike used and the orginal owner installed the exhaust and I never know exhaust needed any kind of maintenance. I had a Muzzy on my old Ninja 500 and that bike went through hell and bike with no problems.

    For the OP, I still don't see how he lost the whole exhaust. NONE of my rivets were holding the can on but the ehxuast was still pretty solid due to the circular clamp.

    This little line in the instructions steered me from TBR a long time ago.

    "Repack all road canisters every 3,000 miles. Part #005-10038"

    I had a Two Bros Carbon Fiber installed on my Ninja 650r and the rivots also came off. I went back to my mechanic and he drilled back the rivots and it happened again. I called Two Bros and for some strange reason they are busy and I left a voice mail. I haven;t recieved a call back. I spent almost 400 dollars on this piece of crap and will never buy from this company ever again.

    Update: Two Brothers sent me another 2006 - 2011 V.A.L.E.™ Slip-On M-2 Carbon Fiber Canister slip on exhaust. I'm planning to buy a Leo Vince stainless steel. If anyone is interested, I'm willing to sell it for $250.00 thru paypal.

    Update: Two Bros said my exhaust I posted pics of was beyond repair. So for the same price to repair they will just replace it for $150. I guess I can live with that. At least I get a shiney new can.

    i had issue with mine too.. (stainless can version) some of the rivets came off the the end can rattled like crazy.. so when checked and removed it.. the fibers where almost gone about 1/3 of the fibers where left inside the can.. so i bought a refill kit and did it myself, the kit has every thing you need from the rivets to the drill bit and of course the refill fibers... (a tip, if you dont want to do this things.. stay away from the two bros exhaust but for me, i can DIY the damn thing and be happy with it..)

    oh yeah, constant practice in our local race track maybe reduced its life.... im a bit of an addict at the track...

    and besides its worth-it.... damn can has the best growl of all the choices.. well thats my opinion...

    I had the exact some issue on my TW carbon exhuast. Spent $600 on a custom black and green can from them. rode with it for a about a seasons worth of riding 5000 miles. I was on the high way with about 4 of my other buddies and a friend of mine giving chase in his impala SS. I was out front cruising and saw everyone starting to catch up. so I down shifted from 6th to 4th and took off. as soon as i let out the clutch and started to get down I heard my bike get instantly louder and knew what had happened. when we got off at the next exit my buddies told me they were all playing dodge the muffler since it shot off like a missile. my buddy in the car ended up running it over since he was not as nimble. call TB the next day, they told me nothing more than to buy another exhaust from them. Why in gods name would I do such a thing if I spent that much on a slip on that fell about after only one season? I will never deal with them again. I went with an M4 as my replacement and I love it!
