    Scrape on end can

    I have contacted my local Akropovic dealer for replacement parts to repair my left hand can (was like this when I bought the bike), apparently they don't supply the bottom connection anymore, is that shit or what.

    Anyone any ideas (you can still get the rivets and the rivet band)

    last resort solution , remove can , de rivet cone , polish out as best you can , refit cone to can but rotated 180 degrees re rivet with stainless rivets .

    hey presto job done !!

    just a thought , R and G do a carbon can protector thing , bit pricey but they would cover the damage and feed your carbon fetish !!!!
