So, didn't get a lot done this weekend. Only had 5ish hours to work on the bike, and the exhaust was really a PITA to fix.
But it was all good in the end though.
Had a damaged exhaust from the previous owner with the end of it intact.
Proceeded to drill the rivets out of the two 'layers'.
What is left of the old exhaust:
Two end pieces:
'Reinforced' the CF by adding a 1 inch strip of appr 2mm thick Aluminium plate on the inside of the exhaust and rivetted it to the CF can.
Stamped holes with a hand held stamping tool not much different from what you use for belts on the entire circumference of the can - through both alu and CF. Then rivett.
Fitted the titanium end on to the can, over the small rivetts, which was doable, and then I ruined my rivetting tool before getting the job 100% done, so the finished job will have to wait a week or two
My memory had let me down during fabrication of the Lap Timer bracket. Need to make a new one since I drilled .1inch too far apart. Can't stand the thought of not doing it 100% correctly.
It should sit right here, but will make an additional bracket that lowers the LT mounting surface an inch or two:
Will post a little more when I start taking the suspension off and when I paint the fairings. I'm ordering the last odd bits and bobs tomorrow I think.....
