    Muffler spares disappearing

    The  left hand stub connecting  my GW's collector box to the  silencer (muffler) has fractured - leaving  its remains stuck up the exhaust pipe  :(

    Browsing  the relevant parts assembly   at "Fowlers of Bristol"    -  a  major Suzuki emporium over here -  was  bad news:

     Exhaust  (ie downpipes & collector)    £908.77     - not in stock
    Right muffler                                        £215.32      - no longer available
    Left muffler                                        £1046.29      - not in stock

    So  I will  be looking for someone to weld the dammed thing up.

    TBH I'd cut my losses and get a stainless system if you can afford it. I had similar problems and got a Delkevik 2 into 1 from Ebay for £309. (They've since reduced the price to £204 which is an absolute bargain) It looks much better, sounds great, shaves a massive 8kgs off the weight and you'll never have to worry about rust again.

    NB - this is for the 450mm oval silencer system, prices go as low as £194.99 for the stubby 225mm version. If you search Suzuki GW250 in their shop there's various options available.
