Good looking bike.
Has the muffler been shortened?

Ride safe, Ted

@ O.C. that's a unfortunate.  >:(

@ Ted. It seems that the muffler is shorter than the standard, but according to the previous owner who bought the bike brand new, it is how he got it from the floor.

Welkom op die forum Hein, en veilige myle op jou nuwe fiets.


That can definitely seems to be shortened, the first thing I noticed as well. From what I can make out on the pic, the rest of the bike seems stock.

Safe miles and welcome to the forum Hein.

Thanks Guys.

I do have a question however. Which oil will be most sufficient for the final drive? I know I must use 75W90, but is it synthetic or semi-synthetic?

Welcome Hein,
So long as it meets GL-5, any hypoid gear oil will do.
I use Castrol Syntrax 75W90 in all my bikes.

If you get a chance, please post another photo of the muffler/left side of the bike, and give it a closer look.
That has to be a modified muffler...

Ride safe, Ted
