My kartboys snapped as well after about 6-7 years also in the parking lot of my job. i did call kart boy submitted photos and they send new ones out to me. for the price after a few years i would care to be honest but good to know they stuck behind such a cheap part. it was crazy to see all 4 hangers and my exhaust on the ground
Sorry for digging up a year+ old thread, but this was all i could really find. I just had all 4 of mine snap in the driveway overnight, luckily the 3 day old Invidia exhaust was saved! Did I install wrong? I used white lithium grease, so I can't imagine that was a cause for failure. There is a good amount of tension in the middle hangar, so I guess it may have needed a longer one there, but the other 3? I have just replaced all 4 with factory stock ones, and they don't' seem too tensioned. I'm afraid if i use all long hangars, it will hang too low.
Unfortunately, KB bushing formulation is very poor and disintegrate after a short period of time (compared with other bushing manufacturers) .
