Exploratory surgery (Phase one). Muffler removal.

As I said Friday, I had a full day of development work on the dyno on Saturday and didnt get home till 8:00pm. It was perfect weather for a ride too.

My kids and the grand-kids came visiting for lunch today so no time for riding again.... Another great weather day again.
So my son and I decided to pull a few bits and pieces of the new bike to see how its put together.

I mentioned previously that I plan on making a new carbon muffler. This morning we removed and weighed the muffler and was surprised to find it was a reasonable 5.5kg.
A carbon muffler should go around 1.5>2kg so there is not a huge saving to be had, just that it will sound a shitload better than the standard note.
