Spent half the day yesterday re-installing her muffler. Tricky since you have to work around the centerstand and one of the header bolts needed an attitude adjustment. Anyhow, she lay still during the drama and now she purrs.
Next up , installing rear fender and trunk and then more paint.


Her quiet muffler.
