spent this day dialing in the exhaust and preventing plastics melting by taping the plastics with 250C heat tape.
tried doing my own plate holder but failed misserably.. so installed a ebay CNC tank cap instead, has a Driven feel too it. Really nice quality and fit. Will paint the bold heads black
also fitted the exhaust with the inner noise reductor, seems like it will do for now. not too loud but not quiet either.
tested the old battery with a multimeter, showed 12,45V turned off and 14,60V on idle so... think I'll run with this until it fails. Have a new Exide on standby :)
