I sat and stared at my big girl wanting to ride but not having a chance in hell.

thats 3 out of the four needles in the right side of my back. Each one is 4.5 inches long and hollow for an electrode to go into and burn the nerve. I had 4 on the left side as well with a total of over 30 shots. Most lydocane to numb the area.

Eek! What the hell happened? Did she turn on you and cause all that havoc? I've got upper spinal issues but apparently minor in comparison. Get well soon!

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

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



instead of this:



It don't fit

Took her for a quick bath



Then made her sit outside while we had a beautiful lunch at the German Bakery, Arenal, Cost Rica, a Moto Rider must do.
