I actually went out today to wash the SWing (I do these crazy things occasionally) as the rural roads I tend to favour are getting very messy these days. Imagine my horror when I found that the nice chrome bolt holding the exhaust silencer to the bracket had disappeared along with the nut and the big chrome washer. Fortunately the clamps holding it to the pipes are pretty strong so nothing else had gone wrong. As you might expect I had nothing in my collection of bolts that was at all similar so I've had to botch it with a length of studding and two nuts with lots of threadlock until I can get hold of the OE pretty ones. Perhaps I'll have to wash it more often !?
