Ebay Supertrapp

4 posts in this topic

I purchased a Supertrapp off Ebay with a model number of 027-3598 on it. It does not appear to fit my 03 XR650L. If bolted on where the stock muffler bolts on it's behind the turn signal and the side cover will not go on. Supertrapp told me that the muffler was designed for 93-05 XRLs. Any help or pictures would be great.

vega25,

The Trapp silencer barrel does not bolt directly to the turn signal mount. It is stepped down further by way of a flat plate. :thumbsup:

So my question is did the slip-on come with the installation bracket, bolts, washers and grommets? By that I mean, did the install kit have the 1" x "3 or 4" 2-holed plate included with it to connect to the turn signal mount and then to the pipe? :thumbsup: PM me if you have more questions.

Thanks for the reply. I have been in contact with SuperTrapp and maybe I can get the plate you speak of. Thanks again. It just did not make since to bolt it up where the stock did.

Come to think of it, you could make your own plate out of some 1/16" - 1/8" thick flat stock since it's really only a piece of metal with 2 holes in it. You'd just bolt the slip-on to the stock header pipe, lift up slightly on the silencer to take the weight off a little bit and measure center to center from turn signal to pipe tab, drill, cut, ease the edges (paint?) and you're done. Just a thought. :thumbsup:

This is where necessity becomes the mother of invention. I had a similar problem with no parts or pieces available to solve it so I made my own. I came up with a simple solution a few years ago for the Clarke 4.0 tank I installed to make it solid enough for off-road use. :thumbsup: Works great to this day and I beat the crap out of '98.
