Wow, that's some serious compression. Lucky it wasn't any worse. Take it easy when you get back to riding!

Hacked the muffler and made this

Well it took more than a day but finally made an auxiliary tank made.
[IMG][/IMG]
Had to gut the muffler here's what it looks like when completely stripped.

Perforated liner with three sheets of matting


The infamous catalytic converter.


Baffles


And the finished product.
Dummy end cap.


Fuel fill and vent.

Pressure test

I just spent 5 minutes trying to spot the fuel filler from the post above.....

Today I put some new shoes on - MT21 front and rear to replace the Scorpions that contributed to my sore leg of the last 2 weeks.

Tried to put the new bashplate on but it looked like this:



instead of this:



It don't fit

Change of heart...

Went for a blast to try out the new MT21 rubber:



Then had a change of heart and removed the quiet baffles from the Akras that I put in the other day. By shovel.




Now I need a 45 tooth rear sprocket, second fan and rear master cylinder guard. Time to start doing some overtime I think.
