Another reason not to buy 2 Bros...




Was taking the header off the motor and all of a suddem I had 2 headers. Would not recommend this exhaust..broke right at the weld.

Damn bro. I'd be calling them with some choice words. I imagine that header wasn't cheap. Think you could have it welded back together?

Go fast parts:
Pipercross race filter, Leo sbk slip on, 05 header mod, pcv, bauce racing ecu flash, agg smog block offs, quick turn throttle, 520 rk gxw chain -1-1 renthal sprockets, ebc hh pads
, Shorai battery.

Body:
Robby moto sbk rearsets, woodcraft clip ons & sliders, armor bodies sbk fairings, db screen, vortex v3 gas cap, keyless ignition mod, agg sbk res kit,

Re: Another reason not to buy 2 Bros...

Call them up. That is pretty obviously a manufacturing defect if you ask me. They might be cool about it and replace it.

Re: Another reason not to buy 2 Bros...

Yeah man! 2 Bros is some high quality shit! They always get a bad rap and I never know why! Haters all over the world I guess!





Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Another reason not to buy 2 Bros...

Yeah, I pulled the sticker off a while ago so nobody would know lol. I bought the bike with this exhaust on it. Cant really afford to get a different one. Ill try calling them and see what happens.
