|Took a gander at Hap's TX bitsa see if this helps me figure out the bucket of brakes I got as to what belongs on my other bikes.|
|Switched the aluminium dipstick over to this bike for now at least. It needs polishing.|
|There is a difference in length and wind, but they are all shiny and no corrosion!!|
|My loud mufflers had to come off. Removed the pipes off the gold bike but could not separate the muffler and header pipe, even with the assistance of WD40 and the BFH...|
|Made up some brackets and fitted the Harley pipes.|
After removing the cap again we discovered some PO had drilled three grooves down through the threads. I am guessing he had stripped the fork cap nut, and done something creative and damaging to remove it.
Solution was to try a little bit of silicone. Of course I was eager to get home and out of Hap's hair, I'd taken over his garage for two days straight, and i didn't give it enough time to cure.
