i used zip ties. Make sure you don't have any oil or anything on it before you install it and get the zips TIGHT [img]images/graemlins/codger.gif[/img]

It must not be lined up right if it rips the rubber!

Did you try making a different muffler bracket or re-allign the one you have?

I had one that I had to enlarge the hole in the frame so that the exhaust tip would allow the muffler to be placed in the right spot.

try loosening the muffler bracket then clean the connector with dish soap to get off all the oil. Dry it carefully then line it all up so its in tight then tighten the muffler bracket. If tightening the bracket makes the muffler want to seperate from the connector then you may have to modify the one you have or make a new one. take pictures so we can see it.
