I def didn't see it. I know where the swimming pools are on this route, this is a new one.

Also can anyone tell me what's wrong with my muffler...def louder than use to be.

Bonus Clip made me cringe. Toreador Pants. No way would I get on and ride in shorts and a T-shirt. Doesn't matter how hot it is.

Man YOU SAID IT. When I see these people biking like that I say all kinds of prayers for them. I'm going to be a baked potato going home today in heat advisory NYC but I will have my gear on.

Just replaced my Graphite gasket. I had no idea the order of it so I went with the flow.

Removed metal support belt

Removed main nut..(all pro mechanic terms).

Took off exhaust,

remove exhaust/gasket brace/scrapped away remaining gasket from inside exhaust

bent out exhaust fins, lightly hammered in gasket

Fit exhaust and gasket over main exhaust pipe

Put main exhaust nut back in

Placed gasket brace on...used adjustable clamp to clamp brace together so I could get a good thread in.

Tightened brace

Put metal exhaust strap back in


Fired up the 500......PRRRRRRRRRRRRTHTHTHRRR like a kitten.

I did however enjoy the angry grumbling of the main pipe.


Now if I can only figure out how to take out rear left turn indicator. Looks like a lot of Tupperware has to come off ugggg.
