    Did some work on the muffler today, just need to finish off the tip
    I wrapped the joint in heat wrap and started it up, it's a bit deeper and a bit louder, will try it out tomorrow
    Here's a sneak peak

    Got the muffler close to finished now, the clamp has been welded on the front now and the tip is finished,
    only need's the tip painted and some more pop rivet's, and the mounting adapter to be tided up and painted.

    Took it for a quick ride, the exhaust is a bit louder than the stock one, and is definately deeper.
    The tune seem's ok, and at rev's it doesn't seem too loud either

    The first one is my pick. I like things "inline" (with the blue stripe) and I also like to see as much of the rear rim as possible.

    The new exhaust front pipe is now welded and the muffler sit's pretty much inline with the stripe now, just need to remake the muffler mount.
    Video didn't work for some reason so i'll need to do that again too.


    Today i fixed up my slippery pillion seat cover.
    I pulled the seat off and removed the staple's, trimmed the front of the old cover so i could lay it out flat and mark out the pattern on the leather i got ages ago.

    Stuffed around with my wife's sewing machine for a long time and finally got the cover sewn together.

    Stapled the new leather seat cover on and refitted it to my bike, i gave it a couple of coat's of Dubbin too.

    And here is the old original seat cover, it was a bit worn out and shiny, also had a few spot's worn through on the corner's.
    I will also recover the rider seat in leather too once i get a chance and have finished off a few other job's.

    I've been trying to fit a leather cover to the riders' seat over the last couple of day's.
    Wasn't having much luck stretching it and getting it to sit flat especially 1/3 of the way back, tried starting at the side's, the front then the back, spent maybe 2.5 hour's trying over 2 day's

    Today i thought i'd try google, and
    i found exactly what i was looking for, a special brew specifically for stretching leather.
    It say's it work's within minute's and that it does, sprayed it on and had the leather fitted to the seat base in about half an hour.
    As it dry's it'll shrink a little and tighten up a bit more, although it's pretty good now.

    Looks to be pretty good. You will now have to add Motor Trimmer to your skill set

    Remade the exhaust sound video of the GPR Powercone muffler today.
    My wife was doing the unco rev thing, she couldn't hold my phone still enough to do the video, lol
    Couple of rev's to 6000 rpm and a couple to 12,000 rpm
