I just bought a pair of "Made in China" exhaust silencers for £90 what I thought was a good price. I wanted something light due to the OEM ones being too long, baffled, heavy and of course, within the £100 range.
In the process of extending the downpipes to compensate for the shorter silencers (these are almost half the length as the original ones)I found an oil leak from the gear change shaft. Thought to myself , might as well get a new seal once I'm doing this.
I guess you can tell that I'm no expert TIG welder by the way I hold the welding rod. Anyway, these are just a mock-up to get the bike through the MOT and for later when I'll be doing some stainless downpipes from scrrrrrrrratch.
