i've got a 99 zx6 with a full graves system on it. the #4 header keeps slipping out of the flange that bolts to the block, and shearing the springs that hold it in place. I've tried just using stronger springs, but it still breaks them after a nice 30 min ride on the highway.. dropping my header out of the flange and resting it on my lower fairings. [V]

So my question is, has anyone had this problem before? How did you remedy it? At this point it seems like the only thing i can think to do is lay some welding bead on the inside of the flange, and then reroll the header at the top.. and hope for a better fit.

any other suggestions?
TIA!

Sorry to hear about that, I would contact the manufacturer or the company that installed it. Sounds like it might be warped or out of shape. Have you considered Maguivering it? Using some heavy guage wire to wire it on permanently?

Graves doesn't even list stuff for Kawi's on their site anymore.. and it was installed by the previous owner. [xx(]
