That was aimed at Mr. Stecken, but yes, I know the feeling. I've made some myself in the past for really, really nasty bearings. E.g. a needle bearing on a MZ gearbox that was sitting in a blind hole.
They are real easy to make with a lathe and mill, my father showed how to hydropress out needle bearing out of blind holes, really neat. Involved a wet paper towel and a close fitting drift.

Started on a muffler, think its gonna be nice when its done. Tonights exercise will be drilling hundreds of holes to the inner pipe. It just sounds a lot nicer with damping.

Yea, a 50mm pipe with some muffling should give it a cool tone and good breathing. Really looking forward to finishing this up!

Exhaust is almost completed, gonna make a mounting bracket, and still thinking about whether to chrome the thing or paint it black. Might just go with black for this season, dont have a lot of time for grind and polish..
It does look better with taller shocks in this configuration.. thinking about shortening the hoop a bit more before i finish that part.
Right now i just want to finish it so i get to ride it this summer..
