    Right guts.......

    The road Mille will be getting ready for hibernation soon, so am planning on sorting a couple of things out and need some help/advice....*

    1 - I have a slight leak from one of the exhaust header pipe joints, where the downpipe slips over the link pipe section has "belled. out" slightly, leaving a few mm gap which is leaking slightly.........so, is it possible to "reshape/reduce" the diameter back to where it should be*

    2 - On the underside of my Devil can should be 2 little spring retainers which are attached via one of the rivets securing the stainless band at the inlet end of the can. Unfortunately, i have lost one (my fault as used too small a rivet and it worked loose and fell out somewhere!)......so was wondering if any of you metal fabricators could possibly make me one up to match the original (which i can send as a template).*

    Cheers for any help!!

    for nr.1 use this: i've used it lots of times with great results! just take care not to start the engine (it cures with heat), instead use a hairdryer or a propane torch (with the propane torch heat the metal, not the sealant)
