Thanks Stinkey, I wanted muddies that suited the look of the bike.

Few small jobs and test time.

Fitted a steering damper today. Made it feel much better at slower speeds, even inflated the front tyre back to factory.

Adapted a VW Beetle steering damper. Pics to follow.

As I near the completion of this project, I must be suffering from trikeitus (if there is such a thing).

For some inexplicable reason I tried to order seals for my exhaust system, mostly Black Widow.(down pipes, collector box & silencer)

I wanted the seals from downpipes to collector box, input side.

Rang Black Widow, a very nice lady explained that they stopped making the downpipes 12 months ago. However she would speak to a technician, who duly found the said items.

The seals were posted, and to my pleasant suprise, I received the seals, 2 stickers( not as nice as the MMM selection ) and a lanyard with there logo.

Great, I was actually wanting a lanyard. Took the seals down to the garages and slid a seal on to one of the downpipes, oh dear, did not fit.

38mm o/d downpipe and 43mm i/d seal. Oh well, I thought, we all make mistakes. Or had the downpipe size altered at some point in manufacturing run. Email to Black Widow.

At that point I got my digital vernier and measured the pipes (38mm) and the i/d of the collector box (39.5mm). Ooops, only a 1.5mm difference, exhaust paste all that's needed here.

Nice reply from Black Widow explaining I only need to use sealant on downpipe to collector, no problem. But why did they send me seals that don't exsist!!LOL.

Be warned fellow monkeys this crippling condition can, and does, strike at any moment of your build. I now sit rocking backwards and forwards, it comforts me but seems to upset those around me.

Fitted exhaust today, complete with home made copper shims in the collector box followed by plenty of gun gum paste.

Lagged the pipework, well you don't want it getting cold in this weather do you?

What a job in this weather, should be a few pounds off.If only the wallet!
