There is a leak on the exhaust where the rear header enters the 'manifold', looks like the clamp has let go. Didn't think that would cause so many issues though....
The bike will be blowing like someone trying to play the trumpet after visiting the dentist with a gobfull of local anaesthetic!

Re: Footpeg/brake bracket

Keep and eye on eBay for a secondhand one- and you'll need to take the swing arm spindle out to replace the hanger. Use the rear wheel spindle from the other side if you don't have the means to hoist the bike up.

Re: Loving the bike... but what just happened?!

I’ve only ever had the rear up with the paddock stand under swingarm :D I’m assuming when you refer to having the rear up I should do it like you would with an ABBA stand?

Re: Loving the bike... but what just happened?!

As a matter of cource you should at least strip and inspect the shock linkage bearings - you won't be able to see what's going inside just by looking externally at em. When were they last looked at? - I'd guess 20 years ago when it was assembled at the factory. Stock shock is overly hard,, with fron...

Any parts of the airbox intake system (i.e plastics) different from stock - we know its very sensitive to changes in that dept. Air lea...
