Exhaust Polished

Gidday,

With the spline lube done last weekend and while the rear end of the bike was removed, I sent the exhaust off to the local metal polishers in town, he dropped it back tonight minus the 20 years of crap and tarnish that had built up on it over its 155,000km. NICE!!

Now you get to put that discoloration back on! Go! Do!
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world.

Grant, is that stainless? If so, make sure you clean any areas you've touched with bare hands before firing it up, or it will discolor.
