Fools Rush In, Cont....

This afternoon's progress (didn't have a full day at it) ...

My assistant this afternoon:

He especially liked the flashlight, peaking at how the muffler is mounted.

Not entirely clear from the service manual, but it hangs from two rubber grommeted inverted U-shaped hanger mounts, on rear facing pins, near the aft end. WD-40 liberally, a few smacks with a plastic headed mallet, stand behind the bike, place your hands on the front of the cans, and pull back, then down, and it's free of the cat up-pipe.

Off pops the muffler, and the cat slides right out. The muffler is the heavier of the two pieces, which was unexpected.

Next we pulled the the shock, bottom mounting bolt first.

Had to move that relocated charcoal canister out of the way of the top of the shock.
