    Yoshi R-77 ground clearance issue resolved,new bracket mount?

    I've recently fitted a new Yoshi R-77 and have noticed the muffler mount bracket is different to any other i have seen.I've searched everywhere to find similar mounting pics but mine seems unique.The way mine is mounted is actually about an inch(25mm)higher up and therefore should give that little bit more clearance.Anyone correct me if i'm wrong..I have included some pics so you can see what i mean..I bought this pipe on December 1st and fitted it just yesterday after it arrived from America.Maybe the team at Yoshi listened to people about the clearance issues.Name:  DSCN2476.jpg

    ive just checked my yoshi pipe, and if anything, yours looks a smidge lower...............the tail pipe straps lower fixing, looks like your fingers could fit in there, but on mine theres no chance.............hard to say with out measuring.........

    Yes i agree my muffler strap is in a different position as most peoples,mine being closer to the Yoshi badge..But if you were to place the strap in the original mount hole(the bolt closest to the front),then the muffler strap would be over aluminium strap with the 3 rivets in it.
    Therefore the exhaust has to be that little bit higher up..My first pic is more square on and you can see what i mean.
    I would love to hear from anyone who has bought a new Yoshi the same just recently..

    Hi, I got mine around the same time at yours, but without the new bracket as mine was an old stock according to Emil from powersports. This is the reply from yoshimura when Emil ask him what is the problem with the bracket ABOUT THE BRACKET.

    I wrote:
    Good morning Doug,

    Any news about bracket #12100-BRKT for 11-12 CB1000R?
    Thanks, Emil.

    HIS ANSWER:

    "Tail pipe (12100-419) has been updated due to production tolerances. Warranty replace only with tailpipes manufacturing 10-1-2012 or after."

    When I asked him why he is talking about the tailpipe when I asked him about the bracket he said because they problem is with
    the bracket that is welded on the tail pipe # 12100-419 not 12100-BRKT.
    Also the problem only affected those that was made after 10-1-2012, my current stock was made month before that.


    as you said, your strap was lot closer compare to mine. it could be to tackle the ground clearance issue.

    I spoke with the Yosh rep at the IMS show and he said they redesigned the mounting for more ground clearance.

    unless they changed the lower fixing point and put a more gentle curve before the tail pipe it cant be any higher.............just my thoughts...

    The exhaust is definately higher..Yes that's right..The tail pipe has been increased in length by about 25mm(1 inch) to tackle the ground clearance issue..And the new black bracket as shown in my pics is to keep the muffler loop strap off the aluminium strap with the 3 rivets in it..
    As you can see in pinit's pic above,the riveted strap is about 25mm down from the old original exhaust mount height.Now the new position is directly below this because of the lenght of the pipe..

    hi Jaydee... yes your right. it took me alot of flicking between pictures of my bike and yours, to see.
    like you said very small changes, but hopefully it,ll work........
