Hey fabrik8r, can you give us the part numbers you used for both please? The first link brings up the whole catalog page, and the second link doesn't open for me. Thanks!

fabrik8r,

I know its been awhile since you posted this. Are the spiral retaining rings still working for you?

I have my Rineharts off again for other work and going through my old take-off retaining rings, all are bent. Yes I always torque to spec. Ran across this post and thinking, there has to be a better retaining ring than OEM.

Also I see Harley did something about the exhaust ring clamps bending, the new 65328-83A has a lot more metal in the weak area than the old 65328-83. As far and exhaust nuts, I changed over to Stage 8 Locking Fasteners years ago and never worry about the nuts backing out stage8.com.

Thanks!

Still working, and never an issue, truly a fire-n-forget item and never any rust. not sure why these rings aren't mainstream and widely used. surprising the links are still functional

Most shops that do work on HD's will carry the nuts for the exhaust.
Their cheap. Just use flange nuts.

The stainless retaining ring is a good idea

I think these are the same thing. I have ordered chrome and stainless bolts/acorns and a wolo from this seller to get the shipping deal.

Default Help - Need Spiral Rings in Aust

HELP.

Can anyone help me get two of these spiral rings to Aust.

We are so backwards sometimes. No one can get them or has even heard of them here.
