I have a friend that took the middle part off the muffler an just used it as a two piece instead.. He got a new bolt that would fit an hold the two pieces together..

Just a few pics of his setup, it seems to work very well, good power only a little louder than normal, but no coming apart..

I have to say sealing all the joints with silicon gasket compound as well as applying it to the nut worked for me. I also used the gasket compound on the muffler to engine faces, without the standard gasket and worked for me as well. They say tightening up when hot helps but I would have thought the aluminium body would expand more than the steel bolt and hence tighten everything up when hot anyway.
