Does anyone know where I would get u bolts for t&k brackets that allow a 3 inch pole.
The t&k brackets i have, there are u bolts that allow a 2 inch pole, the holes on the brackets are wide enough to fit a 3 inch pole, need it for a 1.2 channel master.

Pop into any Exhaust Centre and ask if you can rummage through their fitments bins.

And, BTW, it is not so difficult to make any U-bolt yourself, just take threaded bar and properly bend it ( I've done it couple of times).

Just one advice- take long bar, will be easier to bend. Cut not needed parts after bending. It will, maybe look not as from a shop, but works same. On the picture- original from left side and self-made right one.

Good job, does the trick. I'll have a go at it in the next week.
