AbstractThe invention mounts heat-insulating plates 33, 34, 36 on exhaust pipes 31 and a muffler 18 using a small set springs 35 and a large set spring 37. Occurrence of distortion for heat-insulating plates, in the case of mounting the heat-insulating plates with welding can be eliminated, and the positioning process for brackets the when welding the brackets to exhaust pipes can be omitted. Furthermore, the number of parts is reduced because bolts and nuts are not used. This results in improved productivity and cost reduction.
