Exhaust bracket bolt broke...no exhaust

Wow, what can i say.

So, I have a 13 cbr500r and the bolt that hold the bracket to the pipe broke and is now had the threaded portion of the bolt stuck in the bracket. it has rattled loose so I decided to take the exhaust off until i can either get the bolt out of the bracket or get a new exhaust (which i was planning on doing in 2 weeks anyway; Coffman Shorty).

Anyhow, no exhaust is retarded loud. how does anyone ride around like that on a consistent basis. i cant decide if it is just annoying because the stock exhaust is so quiet or if it truly is that mind numbing. I havent noticed any loss in power or anything like that, it is more auditory noise.

My question is, Am i doing any damage to the motor or is this going to be ok for the next 2 weeks or so?

did you remove the entire exhaust system or just the muffler?
If just the muffler and the pipe is still there, then no, no harm to the engine.
If you have removed the entire exhaust, then probably yes, you are damaging the valves.

I would hope you haven't removed the entire exhaust.

no not the entire exhaust system. just the exhaust portion.

I am going to order a Coffman Shorty Slip On in a couple of weeks, just waiting on a bonus check.

The pipe runs along the bottom of the bike and lets out just behind the rider foot rest

then you're okay.
But you really should learn to use the proper terminology to make yourself clear in the future.
An exhaust system has more than one component and each is specific. The portion you are referring to is the muffler. The portion that bolts to the engine is a head(er) pipe and there may be a third portion between those, that's called a midpipe. Details are important.

It's pretty common to jam a few potatoes in the end of the pipe to make it more quiet, very near factory dbl levels.

Only with a more mellow sound and the smell of french fries

Depending on the diameter of the pipe and the type of bracket, I have a brand new one in my tool box if you want to give it a go. I'll be down in the galleria Saturday evening if you want to meet me somewhere.

That is exactly what it looks like. I'll even buy it off you. I live in the galleria, but I'm willing to travel.
