Default RE: Flexible exhaust pipes?

Yes, I used a small hose clamp.... I took my trusty "Dremel" and kinda' cut a slot/ flat area around the muffler tip as far up to the flare as possible.. Be careful.. Metal is thin and you'll cut through it real quick.. You just want to form a lip or groove for the tube & clamp to bite on.. Used a small hose clamp and tightened it real good & snug.. I then ran the engine for a few minutes, let her cool a bit, and tightened again..

The tube gets real hot, but does not distort or get soft enough to cause any problems. I fabricated a bracket from light ply to hold tube in the center of the exit hole.. No sign of heat damage there either..

Hope this helps...
