Went down during race practice. Very minimal damage, but this looks weird. The motoholders subframe bent upwards and took the termi end cans with it.

Can the slipons be riveted back? Do I need to repack?

Anything can be fixed is it worth fixing is another store you could Re pack and rivet it but it looks like the hole are ripped so you could fix that or just drill new holes or cut the can shorter there's a few ways you could go about it

you will need to cut about 2 cm off the housings, redrill the holes, and cut the same off the center tube, then reassemble.

When cutting carbon use an ultra fine saw blade, and drill with a brand new drill bit. Wear a 3m dust mask while cutting.

Too bad you didn't have cross drilled aluminum bolt on the muffler clamp- it would have broken before your exhaust. It's not really a common break, so I wouldn't have thought about doing a break away on it either.

Thanks Rusty. When you say center tube, you mean that I have to pull out the packing that's currently in there, to get to the center tube, correct? I've never had packing removed from termis so wondering.

Also, can I cut the carbon fiber with a dremel? Would give me more dexterity and flexibility to cut with a small tool than a saw. Any special dremel cutting wheel I need to make sure I have?

For riveting it back together, just regular aluminum rivets, correct?

Good tip on the break away bolt, I'll do that when I put it back together. Termis typically crash really well so I was surprised to see this. I chalk this down to the moto holders subframe, the stock steel subframe wouldn't have bent so easily.

A dremel may fray the carbon, but a small coping saw will work well. Yes you will have to pull the cans apart, especially since the center tube may be bent. You can get new insulation at cycle gear pretty cheap in their dirt bike parts area, and it works great. The rivets are aluminum, just measure one once you drill off the head and pull it for the correct size. Be careful with the center screen so you don't tear it skiing it off the cut the center tube. Wrap the insulation around the center tube and screen tightly and secure with masking tape, then slip the carbon housing over. Then add the end caps and rivet. It's also a good oportunity to buff the cans with fine steel wool and have the clear redone, it's about 50 to 100 bucks at your local body shop. You can get new stickers from motowheels.

Sorry about the typos, I'm on my phone
