Looking for exhaust springs

My 4 into 1 exhaust is held on to the pipes at the collector by 3.75in long springs on the side and I need some new ones, do you think I can find them anywhere??? No.

To get them from Century Springs they require a min order or $100 for overseas orders. Other manufactures are more as they would be custom made, they are nothing fancy.

If anyone has some lying around I'd be happy to buy them and pay for shipping of course. Thanks.

Check with your local motorcycle shop. Most aftermarket exhaust systems are held together with springs . I built a system for my Skybolt and used Moose brand springs from Parts Unlimited (motorcycle parts supplier ).

Thanks for the offers and ideas. I went to the local Harley dealer and bought some that looked pretty close. Ill give them a shot. Do most have one big spring either side of the collector or 2 smaller ones either side?
