Right google it so I can pay 20 dollars plus shipping and wait 5-7 days VS cutting the old o.e down, bending and drilling?
I made the thread to ask if anyone experienced problems by not using one, not to have somene google a part for me

I would have used the one I have to make one myself. How many times did you yourself ask where one could be found?

Yeah locally. Not some special order as specified. I actually ride bro, so i was trying fix it asap, or just not worry about it if people had experienced no problems without using one.

That wasn't the case and apparently local shops don't have it, so I decided to modify the old one. Don't feel like waiting on one to get here.

Some of us can read and remember your first post... You weren't trying to "fix it ASAP". You wanted to leave it with no strap. Both lazy and uneducated. And now you are waiting for the "right drill bit". Uh huh. Prius driver whose toolbox consists of a pliers, hammer and a crescent wrench.

Here is a life tip for you... Don't lie when everything is in writing... Especially your own writing.


"How important is...

I bought a used slip on and never got one thinking I could use the old one. Turns out the old one was an oval shape and this one is round, so it doesn't fit.

Been riding without it and it seems okay. I'm assuming this is to keep the exhaust pipe from bending if you bump into something, or can it crack under stress when it gets hot?"

Initially I was just asking how important it was. As the thread conversation went on, a few pointed out that it is somewhat important. After that was pointed out, I asked where I could get one and if it was special order, because if it was I'd rather just make one.
Once I determined that you can't get it locally, I decided to make my own.

I know things are happening fast, so try and keep up.

You got me on the lazy part. I generally just need my index finger as far as tools go, so I can point you truck driving folk to the mindless, tedious physical tasks that I need to get done on and get back to things that actually require brain power.
As far as the "right drill bit" goes, that translates into one that isn't mine, because I'm not going to mine up drilling through stainless, that defeats the purpose of doing this for free. Don't be a jackass.

And I have a life tip for you. Don't blow money on you don't have to. That includes buying a 4X4 diesel truck to commute with, flat billed monster hats so you can douche it up, buying a new strap when the old one can easily be modified, ruining your own tools when you have access to free ones, I could go on and on.
The point is guys like you probably spend a million or so extra in their lifetimes on useless because you have some lame image to maintain. I don't so you might be laughing now, but I'll be getting the last laugh all the way to the bank.

Hey 5.0, I'm still waiting on you to "easily" beat my times

Bro we work with a load of metal in here and whenever you use bits on steel, it wears them down and they don't drill aluminum for after that.
I could sharpen them, but it cost's more to pay a person to do that than it does to buy a new one.

Dude take a steel beam and drill a hole with it. Now take a piece of aluminum and compare how fast that bit drills through compared to the new one.
Drilling through steel wears them out extremely fast.

Are you guys trying to tell me drilling through steel doesn't wear the bit out extremely fast? Because I have lot's of experience that has proven otherwise.

A stainless strap is a lot different than a steel beam. You didn't want to mess up "your" bit because you drill a lot of aluminum at home?
