Another day; Another manifold..

After a bit of help really, a couple of weeks ago the rear manifold split on my 749s, managed to get hold of another one, then riding along today when this one goes as well.. Both have split all the way round and right on the top weld. Any reason why this may be?! i'm lost!

Thanks, Doug.

Sounds like its getting stressed, is it easy to fit the rear exhaust pipe to it or do you have to struggle to get it on

That's the strange part, as it's easy to fit all together. I know the joints are apparently quite weak but didn't realise it was this bad!
