I've not done a lot with the SDR recently. It's had a few little ride outs, and a visit to Dean's Bike Night near York where it generated more interest than I expected. It's going well and needs nothing more than a bit of a clean really.

I haven't got round to welding up the Martin Johnson exhaust yet, been running with the modified standard exhaust, original silencer cut off and a flange welded on for Martin's silencer.

Then a few weeks back I saw an Alhpa Racing exhaust for sale and thought it might look nicer on my SDR than someone elses.

It came stripped and clean. All I've had to do is prep the mild steel expansion chamber for paint and polish the silencer.



Could this be the true use for "Rotary Driers"? Very Happy



I've got my grass cut today, and Jen's car washed. Maybe I can try the "new" exhaust on the SDR tomorrow and have a little ride out to annoy the neighbours...

The Alpha exhaust fits well, but somehow looks less in keeping with the bike than the Martin Johnson one. I'll run it for the moment, while I repair the Johnson.

Very nice, if it wasn't for my Aprilia fetish I would love an SDR.

Of course SDRs are really rare, unless you're on "Diff'rent Strokers" where you can't spit without hitting one!

On my ride round the block this afternoon I was suddenly aware of having a cold, wet foot. There was petrol squirting out of a perrished fuel pipe! Nervously wobbled home and replaced the pipe, but sometimes you forget that these things are thirty years old...

Finally got round to repairing the Martin Johnson exhaust after the silencer mounting flange broke off at the weld in March of 2012.



Pleased it's repaired before two years had passed. Ashamed it took me that long! Embarassed





When it's on the bike the brace plate is on the underside and shouldn't be too visible.

Bloody thing just broke down! I thought I'd dash in to town while it's not raining to get my MoT done. There was this ticking noise, that got louder, so I stopped. So did the noise. Set off again, something is catching, tyre, chain, gearbox...? Turns out a stud has worked its way out of the rear sprocket and was catching the swingarm. I've asked the MoT man to pop it back in. My first breakdown since last time the SDR broke Down.

When I picked it up, passed, he said the other sprocket studs were loose as well. He's thread-locked and tightened them for me. Thanks. Very Happy

I'm seriously thinking of selling the SDR, have a look in the for sale section for a bit of detail if you can't find what you want to know in this thread. PM me if you're interested.

I've had it almost six years, and seem to be using it less than I was, not that it's been used much at all really. I've got three bikes on the road, four when I get the KH finished, and other projects on the go as well. I'm thinking it could be time to move on to other things. Maybe selling the Buell as well.
