I recently put on a set of Bassani street sweepers on my2010 iron 883. I have had a problem withthe pipes coming loose. The last time Itightened them down to speck(except the support bracket, admittedly a stupidmistake and will do that next time). Ipicked up some nuts that have teeth on them to 'bite' into the brackets. I was just wondering if anybody had anyadvice for me? Thank you for you'retime.

welcome aboard....if you didn't tighten a bracket then you really can't say what caused the pipes to come loose....a split lock washer ought to work....loosen up everything and realign the entire exhaust again in the sequence per the insturctions...don't overtighten the exhaust studs
