Rattling from left hand side soon after setting off on a blast and yep my second left side bracket snapped in two years , last one was replaced at the factory in their check over at the factory do. Could do with a bracket that is less brittle ? Are they weldable ? Maybe I could find someone who can make a stronger bracket as the MMC one will only snap again !

I am on my 4th set of brackets in 35,000 miles it’s a very poor design. Even after MMC changed the design 3 times they still failed. In the end I got a local exhaust specialist I know to modify the troublesome brackets and add an additional exhaust hanger. To date no more problems. This is on a Plus 8 Speedster.

John , I comiserate with you on this ! I have gone down the same route as you and am getting a fabrication specialist to design a stronger bracket forthwith ! So far the drivers side bracket has not failed but after hearing of your experience its only a matter of time !

The renovated bracket now has a stainless rolled edge and has been well behaved going to Silverstone and back . Next test is the Welsh trip with Folkmog !
