Semi new biker in need of advice

#1 Post by Kallam » Sat Jan 05, 2019 5:12 pm

Hey guys,

I'm Kallam, started riding in August of last year and I've been in love with it ever since, only on my CBT but that doesn't stop me riding every day, I currently have a lexmoto zsx-f 125 and I love this bike, however in an incident where I was hit by a car my bracket that holds up my exhaust has cracked and now snapped, I was wondering if anyone could give advice on how I could repair it before my exhaust falls off while riding.

I'll try and upload images however I'm trying to get use to the website lmao

Hopefully I pasted those images in correctly,

As you can see the whole rear bracket that's holding up my exhaust has snapped and you can't see in the images however the bolt inside has come lose from the bracket, would be very grateful if anyone could suggest anything that maybe I could do myself to fix the bike or what parts I would need!

Thanks,
Kallam

It might be possible to weld your old 1 back on but I doubt it

I cannot see the photos but have a look at this here.

If the part you mean is not on that diagram have a look through the others.
I use CMPO and find them reliable.

Hey guys thanks for all the help,

After hunting on the Lexmoto website I found the part I need going to try and fix it myself would like to get more handy with motorbike repairs so this should be a fun project!!
