    GTR 215 Clamp Problems

    Last year I noticed one of the big exhaust clamps around the short rubber hose leading to the muffler had the excess length broken off at the screw. I thought I must have bumped it without noticing, but now found the other clamp on the other side of the rubber hose also lost the clamp excess (i.e. the part of the clamp that has fed through and "floats"). I've replaced both clamps with T-bolt clamps. I think the ends broke off due to the vibration, and that this could be a problem. I'm taking a poll to see if any others experienced this with their GTR or other models.

    I have experienced that with my GTX 155! A few of them actually. Never replaced them and no issues. Must be the vibration. Not yet on my RXP-X 260 but only at 62 hours. Never replaced them and no issues.

    I replaced all worm clamps with T-Clamps and have never had a problem since:

    These are the best clamps. They sell them at west marine. You need size 44
