Exhaust, Haynes, Rectifier etc
the quick response guys.
It is a nonstandard exhaust, but it’s only a couple of years old and still
looks to me to be in very good condition. The bike came with a fair amount of
history and the exhaust replacement is a part of it. Off the top of my head I
think it was purchased from wemoto. How do I check to see if the exhaust is the
source of the problems? Wouldn't this have come up in the MOT test? I am also

The woman who
pulled out on me blamed me at the scene and, in front of the police, accused me

flick the switch till I can turn the engine over. Again, how can I diagnose if
it is what is affecting the engine?
Going to get
my hands dirty this weekend so all/any advice is gratefully received!
