The strap on my new spare 'Double S' muffler is 1-1/2" wide.

And mine - which is original.
I rather thought it was more than Bill said and measured mine when I got back from my afternoon blast round the Forest of Dean.
It's about the same width as a front shocker lower bush washer - which I used to spread the load onto the strap.
For those who worry about these things I have replaced the bolts with stainless since I took this photo after my son complained about how they looked when he followed me.
I suspect that all black would be better - maybe later
