She is back.
« on: June 23, 2021, 16:11:10 PM »
Got the bike back after my mate borrowed it for a year, but he did barely 100 miles on it. He did mange to get a new mirror for it, so that's a plus.  I still have to sort the lacquer out, but not to bothered. I brought a Hot Cam Carbon can that was for a VFR800 Fi some time back, and have now fitted it to day.  Very light. I had to make a bracket and cut and re-weld the the connecting tube so the can would miss the swing arm. Thought I would add some pictures of it, but will not let me. Will try later.

Me, a sound file. you must be joking, as that is not in my skill set. It is not to load and quit a bass sound. I don't like pipes that are to load. This site is not letting me upload pictures. Keep getting and notification, that the server will not load it, or that the picture is to big.

I don't like loud pipes either, but some sound better than others.
When you have a smart phone it can do it for you, even making the picture file smaller.
If you're on a PC google is your friend...

This is the same Carbon can fitted on a Bandit. Sounds the same, but without the rattly engine
