I polished my exhaust today - What a Pain in the ass....

I actually did this a few days ago but didn't want to put it in the old thread as it obviously is a general interest do-it-yourself type deal. So, here we go.

The current WASPmobile (2010 XT1200Z Super Tenere) is about 21mths old, and I decided it was about time the original headers had a spruce up.
Actually, the whole bike desperately needs a clean as it hasn't had one for a few rides now.. Very unlike me but i've been short on time.

I posted this pic in another thread (about the 21" front wheel install) and was totally disgusted by the condition of the pipes.


I got a quarter of the way into the job and reminded myself why I dont do this more often... What a frig'n pain. I like looking at shiney shit, but I am no longer fond of shining shit...



Anyway, the headers came up well and I even did the stainless port nuts and the cat converter.



Now if I can only remember to give the pipes a wipe every now and then they might stay clean for a while.

Next job is to give the whole bike a wash and shine...... One day

Greg.
