BMW R65LS Restoration

Exhaust

The exhaust system is stainless steel.  It is yellowed quite a bit. Getting the silencer off the machine was not easy.  All of the fixing bolts were solidly rusted in position.  I had to drill through the heads of the allen bolts holding the fixing brackets to the frame.  Once off I managed to hammer an old box spanner onto the bracket on the exhaust pipe and used that to turn it.  Box spanners are much better than 12 pointed sockets in this situation.
One silencer has a small split beside the bracket.  Maybe a silver solder job?
