So back at the bike again. As always working on too many projects at the same time!!!

Spent a few hourstrying to put the exhaust back on. Damaged the muffler packer on one side and metal on the exhaust box.

Two things. One I hadnt noticed that one of the studs coming out of the head had been replaced and was shorter than the others. One of the fluted exhaust holders had also been machined to accomodate this shorter bolt. AAArrrggghh. I hadnt noticed. Anyway it goes together now but need new packer (£10 worth of education, right!). Two,I also have to weld the exhaust box as can't get a new one. The parts were damaged and torn as I assembled.

Ive got Oxy Acety so will have to give it a go. Planning to make a hardwood plug to ram in the hole the metal in the correct shape, hope it works.

Also been on the front brake, its a good wee job, but the gold paint applied with a brush looks crap! New airfilters also, so hope they work well and no problem with the bike.

Spraying the engine (heat resist) and leaving the casings shiny Aluminium. Took the cases off to get inside the really manky areas. Boy, was it choked with crap. Hope to get the engine painted soon. Casings back on then spray the engine, then casings off and polished up.

So I have a friend who cuts me some parts on the laser. I've had bits cut for the rear rack and also for holding the tear drop indicators I bought. The bike rack metal is cut flat then folded in to 3D. I drew the parts on Autodesk Inventor. The little indicator 'ticks' are two 2mm thick pieces. Only the outside one has the lettering cut out.

I'll add a picture of the parts after coating. What do you think??
