Ride is a NOOB
Default Exhaust support

I removed the welded on passenger peg supports which also supported the factory muffler.

I contacted danmoto and they are telling me that a support on the muffler is necessary. That what I have now (a strap from the link pipe to the peg/rear set) is not enough.

They are saying the exhaust can will likely break or fall off.

Is it possible to pop rivet the muffler can to the interpipe/link pipe and expect it to hold up reasonably well?

Pop rivets are soft, they'll shear off in no time. Perhaps some sort of an arm going behind the can if you don't wanna hang it off the subframe? Maybe bolt it to the back of that rearset adjuster plate?

Also the rubber spacer around your big P clip isn't going to last long against the heat of the link pipe.

Do they still not deburr those straps? The one that came with my JISU can was quite literally razor sharp, cut myself on it without noticing it til my hand was all red and wet.

I guess the rubber is for vibration damping? Car exhausts are hung from rubber, OEM bike exhausts will usually be hung on a rubber bushing.

I guess so plus scratch prevention too, they just stamp the straps off a sheet and don't do anything to them, they're delivered straight and you gotta both bend it and put on the rubber strip which I guess is when I managed to cut myself on the endge that was sharp enough for me to not even feel it til I noticed my hand is wet.

If it makes you feel any better, I've had this Dan Moto on for awhile and it hasn't fallen off or cracked yet.

I did lose one of the springs once, but those are pretty easy to source.

Is it only supported at the link pipe? I love that exhaust and in retrospect wish I had gotten it instead of the carbon fiber one.

Yes danmoto told me the same- it’s not meant for direct to pipe contact and would melt.

Correct, if you look halfway between the right peg and right passenger peg, you'll see a bolt head.

I cut/bent up a piece of stainless and had it welded to the mid pipe so I could bolt it there.

Basically looks like it's floating.
