How would you attach the mufflers with the triangles?

You probably wouldn't.
On most of the Emgo mufflers, you just use the strap-like piece in your photo tp mount grom footpeg hole to muffler.

If you MUST use the original "triangles, I suggest that as shown in your pic would be appropriate...Just overlay the strap across the lower two triangle holes......But why?

I'm not following you. How do I not use the triangles and what is the strap? Sorry to be so thick-headed, but this is all new to me.

Chris..... The easiest method is to run the strap (alone) from the wheel side of the rear peg mount (using the peg bolt) directly to the bolt on the back of your muffler..... You may have to shorten the strap and/or drill another appropriate hole to line everything up....

Re: Muffler Hangers - Photos

Chris -



The stock 450 muffler looks like this, with two welded-in studs to attach to the two bottom holes on your triangular piece. The top hole on the mount piece goes to the buddy peg bolt.
The triangular pieces are Left and Right, by the way.




I don't know what sort of aftermarket mufflers you have, but most of them are the Emgo type, in a lot of variants. Common to them all is the sliding adjuster and strap.
Many times, as with CB200, it's possible to use the stock mounting plate and ignore the chromed strap. I needed to do this because of the buddy peg anchor tab that fits in the slot you see on the top left of the plate.
Not happy with it, I'll use the strap next time I put it back together.




The 450 was relatively simple, just used the strap. Though there are many reports of folks using the stock mount plate on 450's too, similar to the CB200 photo. Looks like it might fit, but I didn't try it.




Just put the muffler onto the already tightened down exhaust pipe.
Work with both adjustments at the strap and get the muffler straight and everything lined up right.
Then tighten the strap on both ends, and finally tighten the clamp at the joint.
The joint will probably leak - I used this stuff (just the cloth) to fix it - from the auto parts store.
