1/8 inch. 3 km steel will work. Don't get aluminum. They will wear out

Actually, use stainless steel rivets. I have just received slash cutt tips from Motovation and planing to replace tips this weekend. Do a little search here on the forum , I think it was Lee who explained why not to use alluminum rivets . For rivets source ask Noel , he was the one who helped me to find source how ever my Motovation ordered (original Arrow slash cutt tips came with rivets ) . And Yes , for those who wonder They ( slash cutt tips ) will fitt to stock exhaust !!! just edited (here is a phone number for a rivets source) (USA) 632-600-3600

Cheers guys, thing is I have bought a set of RG3s and they have the tambo colour, however I want the nice standard tips so I would like to swap them over. I know motovision do slash cuts but I want to keep my original! Hence asking for the rivit size so I can swap them over! Has anyone done the same project? Or am I going to fail?????

I have used aluminum rivets with steel pins and all aluminum rivets before and they have never worn out. There isnt much stress on the rivets once you press the tips in place. But go for aluminum rivets w/steel pins if you want more strength.

You guys ever hear of galvanic corrosion? It happens when disimilar metals are in direct contact, or in supsension, in an electrolite. Think battery, because that is what you create. Now, if you use alluminum rivets in a steel hole and get that wet...you have created a battery. That works because the electrons from one metal transfer to the other metal throught the electrolite (water) and it creates corrosion (oxidation) in the process. The alluminum rivets will corrode in a steel exhuast creating an ugly mess. The seel pin (mandrel) is not a structural part of the rivet...it is only used to deploy the rivet in the material being joined.

The short story: Use steel rivets, preferably stainless, in steel material.

Thanks for the info, I have gone for stainless.

So I guess from your info that if the slash fit RG3 & standard then my standard will fit the RG3s?

I'm gunna give it a try when I receive my rivets.

So my 1000R will now have BMC airfilter, RG3s, MVAgusta Race ECU not sure I should get her decated, surely the race ECU has been developed with the cat???
