Finally got round to replacing a broken down pipe on the rear cylinder. (Flange where it mates with the exh gasket is broken off). But, OH NO! It’s different! Had to jam the broken one back in again. Big waste of time, sweat and a little cursing.
(A friend sourced the replacement for me from a breakers in NZ. He doesn’t own an SS so had nothing to check it against. I don’t know what year this pipe came from but it’s for one of the carby models. Mine is ‘96 900 so now I’m on the lookout for another. Ideally one that fits!)
