He's not the social media sort but he's loving his new ride...
What you did...that's my definition of a friend! I'm sure he really appreciates your help.

My Low Rider has popping issues that I haven't been able to tune out. Not major, but it annoys me. I know I should've checked for an exhaust leak early on, but I was too busy doing more important things to the bike (like installing footpegs ). I didn't really know how to check for leaks anyway. Then I found a great vid on YouTube which I followed - spray the exhaust ports with soapy water. Stick a ShopVac hose in one pipe and seal it with some duct tape. Cover the other pipe and flip the switch and....HEY...BUBBLES!!! When I was a kid and we wanted bubbles we had to fart in the tub!

So I thought, let me see how tight the exhaust flange nuts are...if I can brake them loose, maybe I can do this myself. Hand tight. So loose a torque wrench wouldn't register anything I'm sure. So I picked up a pack of HD SE gaskets for $9 and replaced them. Torqued everything proper. Now we'll see how it is, after coming days of rain is done.
