I mean it could have been worse. Now I'm going to metal polish the crap out of it an see if I can pull the tiny dent that no one but I would probably ever see. I wish someone made a nice guard that didn't look like crap.

Back in the Summer of 2007, I was detailing my gsxr600 (High as **** on sour diesel) sat on her to to push her into corner of garage and when I went to get off I realized I forgot to put kickstand down and tried to one leg deadlift her back up for about 30 seconds,before I had to settle for lowering her to the ground and then lifting bike back up. Destroyed the driver-side mirror and spent the next week feeling like an idiot:crying:

My boyfriend(at least I think he was the one who told me) went to get gas got off the bike an forgot to put down the kickstand. Both hands off the bike before he realized what he'd done.

My brother did this earlier this summer. He rides a 1998 HD Dynaglide. Pinned him right up against the gas pump. A guy had to run over and help him get unstuck.
I still LOL when I picture him stuck between his bike and the pump. :)

Ouch my shiny. My darn shiny. Now what.... now what. Ugh.

Anger gets you nowhere,
turn it into a solution with benefits :)


Easy fix, provided you can competently drill stainless rivets.
Sharp 4mm bit,
Trefolex,
short bursts with air drill without overheating bit, or they spin.
disassemble both ends of muffler.
Shorten outer with dropsaw andfile the sharp edge,
shorten inner perf tube at rear by the same amount.
Repack (Packing available at any bike shop), not too tight (Noisy) not too loose (blows out)
Re rivet using heatproof dow corning silastic to seal.


Aftermarket zorsts have to be repacked every few yrs anyway.


Here ive done a guide-
http://www.cbr250.net/forum/cbr250-service-maintenance/11666-repacking-aftermarket-exhaust.html


When Carbon ones have damage I reskin them wuth 0.7mm ally.
(don't buy carbon folks if longevity or damage is important)
Yours only appears to have minor damage at front, and the Yosshi is ugly long anyway

You sure are hard to please.>:D


If you like the ugly long look, just rotate the damage to the inside.
If it was a Nofriends (2bros) i'd say bin it, but Yoshi is reasonable quality and worth saving.
I enjoy the simple things in life going stupid fast(someday I'll have the HP between my legs) and shiny. Oh and a man with a motorcycle. That's all... and..

I don't trust myself to drill them my boyfriend says no. So then it's a no ?
