Default Peek polish 32k mile exhaust

Right.

Dont know if anybody is actually interested, but i was sick of the state of my exhaust after 32k miles and no obvious attempt by previous owners to actually clean it, so, i decided to invest some time in making it look all shiny and new again

Purchased some PEEK polish from eBay, cost me about 3 quid, and 5 hours of my time, but honestly, anybody looking to restore a bit of life in their exhaust pipes, i HIGHLY recommend this stuff. I will get a couple of pics on here in the next couple of days for anybody interested as a sort of before and after comparison type thing, but really, absolutely fantastic stuff!

Although it might not be til wednesday actually, seeing as the bike is off the road til then (STUPID BRAKES!!!! ) and i just realised the lead i need to get the pics on the computer from the phone is at a mates house!

Anyway, thats about it, sorry if this isnt some super exciting post, but what did you expect eh?

You will get pics, but the frustration at the minute from the brakes, you may end up seeing blood too hahaha

Very nice job! Now you just have the whole rest of the engine area to clean. You can't do the exhaust and leave the rest dirty. Spic and span by lunchtime!

Ha! i know this is gonna sound bad, but i have done the rest, its in need of some fresh paint, but i cant afford it at the minute, just forked out a small fortune sorting the front brakes out!!!

Besides, the not shiny bits will be hidden when the fairing lowers go back on, so it will look pretty smart anyway
