I got the exhaust bracket made up and installed and then painted the pipes in "pot belly black", which comes up pretty good. I also made and installed the end cap which holds the baffle in place. It just needs sanding and then polishing and it will be good to go.

The footrest bracket / exhaust hanger came out really well  8)

Thanks pj, it hasn't got the correct bolt in it yet as the pipes aren't done up tight at the front and need to come back a couple of mms further.

Yesterday I made up the chain guard (yes, we have to have them in Australia) by milling some slots in some aluminium angle iron and a radius around the back end.

I then bent the back piece into shape and welded it together on both sides.

It was then sanded back and now just needs some brackets made to fit it up.

Rad.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Thanks Brodie, not too much more to do now, although I do remember saying that a year ago as well ;D ;D

Got my new brake lines fitted up. They were made by helperformance and are really well done, $150 delivered for the two with additional grommets seemed like a good deal to me.
I made up a little bracket for the front one out of some stainless steel welding wire. The speedo sensor cable can be cable tied to the brake line so that worked out well.
The rear one fits perfectly, just need to mount a couple of YZ hose clamps that I had previously and it will be good too.
