That looks like Tom's (richocet rider) bike, If not, I am just talking bollox as usual!

Note below the bike, a big spot of oil... A couple guys were gathered around my bike peering at it, and under it. I let em go, until someone finally said..."Hey you better take a look at your bike, man." I saw the oil on the ground, and looked at the frame- bone dry, no drips of oil. I was like "Nice try."

I've seen that game already. Later I found that one guy on the ride had a vial of oil he carries to mess with people! A couple years back, they fucked with a dude who brought his Buell, all day long. They had a field day- not sure if Mr Buell ever did figure where that oil was coming from!

Have you tried Keihan in the UK? They ship to the States.

Google "Keihan exhaust."
