So back at the bike again. As always working on too many projects at the same time!!!
Spent a few hourstrying to put the exhaust back on. Damaged the muffler packer on one side and metal on the exhaust box.
Two things. One I hadnt noticed that one of the studs coming out of the head had been replaced and was shorter than the others. One of the fluted exhaust holders had also been machined to accomodate this shorter bolt. AAArrrggghh. I hadnt noticed. Anyway it goes together now but need new packer (£10 worth of education, right!). Two,I also have to weld the exhaust box as can't get a new one. The parts were damaged and torn as I assembled.
Ive got Oxy Acety so will have to give it a go. Planning to make a hardwood plug to ram in the hole the metal in the correct shape, hope it works.
Also been on the front brake, its a good wee job, but the gold paint applied with a brush looks crap! New airfilters also, so hope they work well and no problem with the bike.
