That's what could be called lateral thinking, or common sense.johnr wrote:take the rear shocks off, then you can lift the wheel or lower it to allow the spindle to come out, leaving the silencers undisturbed.
Exhaust have been obsolete for ages, no ideas there. Except that there is a place that can make copies, or was, I just can't remember who it is and it's on my favourites on my work computer and goodness knows when I'll get to that again. If it's still there, apparently my chair has been nicked, and it was one of the best one's there. Is nothing sacred.
I'm pleased to note that someone of e-bay is now doing silencers and downpipes like the originals on my CB250RS, I am so tempted, if only I could find the Â£300.00 or so to get them, right now though I don't think that would go down well with my darling wife.
