Thanks Eddie ! Does the bracket pivot (or look as if it is supposed to pivot) ?

I really can't get my head round the exhaust being bracketed to the swing-arm - surely it either puts strain on the exhaust and the bolts where it mounts to the engine or it stops the rear suspension from working as it should or, most likely, a bit of both.

Needs a bit of a polish, btw ;)

The bracket is definatley solid I've Just been out and bounced the rear end and the engine pivots with the rear suspension meaning no strain is put on it. Strange but true

I wondered if that might be the case.
Especially after looking at severalty pictures of Batuvi that all use the same exhaust mounting method.

I think the bird's nest hub is the nicest feature :lol:

Just thinking, if the engine swings with the swing arm then it should be a doddle to set the chain tension as it'll never vary.
