2005 YZ450F, stock head pipe Q4 silencer.  

 

Has anyone else had problems with the rivets shearing off on the rear exhaust hanger?  They sheared off first time I rode the bike.  Replaced them, and now after the third ride they are shearing off again.  Almost thinking of replacing the rivets with nuts and bolts.  Any thoughts or ideas are appreciated.  Thanks!

After thought...  Did you use lock washers or nylon lock nuts?  I prefer ny-locks, but not sure if they can handle the heat output from the exhaust.  Also, did you mount the nuts on top, or inside the can?  Thanks again.
