For some reason I keep breaking exhaust brackets on my '02 Superglide. I have Vance and Hines short shots on it. The bracket is a solid mount that bolts to the tranny side door. The bracket is 1/8in thick steel and a couple of months ago it snapped. Very strange I called Vance and Hines and they sent a new bracket out. I asked if this was a common problem and they said no, it was very rare. While I was waiting for the new bracket to come in I had a buddy weld the old bracket so I could continue riding. I rode around a few weeks and when the new bracket came in and I went to install it I discovered that the welded bracket had broke again! It was a sold weld but I shook it off and installed the new bracket. Now approximately 2,000 miles later that new bracket broke! I called V&H again and they are as confused as I am. They are sending me another bracket free of charge but I am more concerned with what might be causing this. The V&H rep told me to check the motor mounts. He stated that there might be extra vibration causing the breaks. The bike seems to be running fine but I will try anything at this point. First of all does anybody have a suggestion on what could be wrong? Also how do I check the motor mounts and what am I looking for? I know the front mount is easy to get too but what about the rear mount?
