Hi guys,
I just broke my pipe and subframe after landing from a jump. Been doing some research and this is apparently a known issue?
I can get the subframe fixed however is it true that PC are replacing the pipes?

Also another issue I have had is my chain roller completely ripped apart. Only 10 hours on bike. Will attach some photos.

All info would be appreciated. (I’m new to kawis) always rode Yamaha Photo

Yea the pipe mounting is an issue. Its a combo of that tab being weak and the pipe not having a rubber grommet. Not sure how pc is handling it. I bet theyd send just the rubber piece.

The new PC pipe is rubber mounted and the mid pipe is welded to the muffler. They still say to weld the subframe and add a brace. Photo

The roller does suck, TM Designs has one out for $20 not much. Chain sliders tend to wear fast as well.

I only just brought this Pioe. When if fell off it basically destroyed the end cap and pushed all underside in.. who do I contact in regards to buying another pipe but making sure it’s already rubber mounted? And also maybe getting this one Refurbished?

Another question I’m trying to buy parts such as skid plate, chain sliders etc but no one has stock? I’m from Australia and can’t buy from WC website as they don’t ship here

Call Pro Circuit for the pipe. As for a skid plate I bought a carbon one from CRM in Italy. Not sure if TM Design works ships to you for the rollers/sliders.

Yeh for sure its comfortable. Ive always had Yamaha which never broke at all, so its a little frustrating. But other than that its probable the most comfortable ive been in a long time

Fmf makes a bracket that bolts from seat to pipe.
