Exhaust hanger/bracket

Hi everyone,
Does anyone know where I can get a race style exhaust hanger for my K6 in North America (Canada)?
Its a dedicated track/race bike & I want to replace the big OEM bracket.
I've searched on this site, Ebay, even Amazon etc.
Found lots of them in the UK but they won't ship to North America.
I found a few posts on here about them but the links provided in the posts are all dead now.
Any help appreciated.

Thanks, Smudger

We have members over in the UK, maybe they'll ship it for you if they're nice enough

I've also heard of people fabricating their own.

Re: Exhaust hanger/bracket

Thx Taters,
I'm from the UK originally (came to Ontario in 2005) so I still have close family over there who would ship to me if I asked, I just don't want to hassle them with having to ship something to me.
Fabbing one up is an alternative but I guess I'm a bit lazy & would rather buy one if possible, seen some nice ones from Harris etc but cant find where to buy them.

You should listen to me. No, seriously, listen to me.

Re: Exhaust hanger/bracket

Here's one.

This discusses them. But, as you're finding, much of the K5/K6 stuff is discontinued.

Here's the Harris.

Thanks Bill
I found this one I might go for:
R&G Racing Exhaust Hanger to fit Suzuki GSXR 1000 K5-K6 2005-2006 | eBay

The R&R is a better price though although I like the look of the one in the link better

Re: Exhaust hanger/bracket

If looks are a priority you might consider Sato. Not sure that they're actually available. R&R also makes a tubular style for K5/K6. I used to like Evotech but this sort of turned me off:


This might be by Akrapovic (and possibly discontinued):



Not cheap but a few of these genuine Suzuki accessory brackets still seem to be available:

Thanks Bill, great pictures.
Did a quick search for the Suzuki one but nothing came back.

Re: Exhaust hanger/bracket

^Here's one and here's another. Both in Europe. No guarantee that they actually have it.

I think that the SERT team used to make their own:


Don't know but it looks like stainless, or titanium at a stretch. The folded sides probably reflect their experience in endurance racing. The bend radius looks too small for grade 5 titanium.

I wonder why they stopped importing that Devil exhaust system in the US. They make a great system.

Re: Exhaust hanger/bracket

Thanks for all the help guys, appreciated
I finished up taking the OEM hanger into work (I am an engineer so have access to tool room milling machines etc) & modifying the OEM hanger to remove all the "lumpy bumpy" parts I no longer need such as tie down hook, pillion peg mounts etc & then gave it a quick polish.
Not as aesthetically simple as a bought in racing hanger by any means but it looks fine to me & saved me over $100Cdn which has just been used to purchase a brake lever guard.
She's starting to look like a track bike now with the new Ohlins SU503 shock fitted along with rebuilt forks by Scott Miller at FAST Co & some new Michelin Power RS tires.
Just waiting for the GB Racing engine covers to arrive & then the bodywork can go back on.

"I wonder why they stopped importing that Devil exhaust system in the US."

I've forgotten the details but there was some sort of legal entanglement, maybe a bankruptcy by one side, and refusal to sell that put a cork in US sales. That was years ago but they've never recovered. See the third post here for a hint. I think that SERT now uses a Yoshimura exhaust.

Going at the OEM hanger with a hack saw, file, belt sander, and spray can has been done before and isn't a bad approach.

Re: Exhaust hanger/bracket

This is two weeks after the fact but I'd forgotten that Yoshimura makes two hangers.

161-506-0210 (listed as for a slip-on):


161-506-0100 (listed as for a full system):

I'm not sure if the above image is that exact part. But Yoshimura pdf's have drawings showing the bracket looking like that.

Sorry Bill just say your reply. You forgot to direct quote me so I could get notified. No worries.

I'm surprised the guys there on that forum you linked considered it a loud pipe. My roomate had one on his k2 600 and his pipe didn't sound any louder than the Yoshi RS3 on my 750 at the time. Not sure where they're getting that from or they just maybe confusing the system with D&D. Either way, the Devil was a solid system back in the day, although short lived in our sportbike world. Figured it was some sort of business deal that went wrong. Ahh well.

I'd rather ride and control an Analog bike than ride and be controlled by a Digital one.
