How do you clamp this muffler to the stock head pipe?

Its fits like a glove right over but the stock clamp is to big due to the stock muffler collar?

i was told to use rtv silicone, but it blew out on the first ride, so im wondering the same thing if they make a clamp or not?

The directions said to use High temp RTV sealant, which sounds good, but I would assume that would be in addition to a solid clamp? Maybe Not?

I just called FMF and they said it does not require a clamp! They told me just use high temp silicone seal. It's just a slip fit according to them.

I used permatex ultra copper,thin coating all around header about 2" in from end.Slide pipe on and tighten both mounting bolts,remove excess permatex let cure completely otherwise it will blow out as stated above.Worked fine no leaks I don't think any kind of clamp would work unless you cut slots in the end of the mid pipe to allow it to clamp down on header. :excuseme:

I have used that ultra copper high temp stuff on my snowmobiles, works great, if you let it dry 24 hours first........
