looking for exhaust springs

Post what you are looking for

Hi,
My exhaust springs are getting pretty tired. I've looked at hardware stores, auto parts stores, motorcycle/snowmobile shops, small egine shops. No one has similar springs. Does anyone know where I might find some?
Thanks,
Brian D.

would the original rotax exhaust springs from the 503 582 series be the same?
remember to put a bit of spark plug antisieze were the springs contact the hooks.

Thanks for the links Shannon, I'll see what I can find there. The 503, 582 springs are quite a bit bigger sadly. I was sure that springs like these would have some small engine applications, but no small engine guy could help me so far.
Cheers,
Brian

It's been many years since I was involved with motorcycles but 2 stroke motorcycles used the spring method to hold their exhaust on. Just a thought.

I got springs direct from a local manufacturer last summer. If there is difficulty getting replacements I can ask what they want for a bulk buy. The springs I used were a shelf item. To get the price break the order would want to be 100 to 200 pieces.

Cheers

I've been pretty busy all winter and haven't had a chance to look around yet. Last time, I checked small engine and automotive supply shops and noone had anything similar. Mine are all getting pretty stretched out, so I need six. I'll start looking again soon. Glen, it's good to know that you found them and that they are a shelf item.
Thanks,
Brian D.
