Looks good Tom. I like the extra length that you added, makes one wonder why Kawasaki made the original so Short?
I have seen the RH outer single screw melted out of a 2009.
My failed mid-pipe gasket melted a 3/8th's X 3/4 inch size hole in the bottom front edge of the clean air box, back at about the 15-20,000 mile mark. I'm reasonably certain that I caught the problem the same day.
Was riding by myself. Was wearing ear plugs. Rode about 200 miles of dirt and about the same 200 of asphalt. Heard the exhaust leak as I started to leave the gas station upon the end of my trip. (No ear plugs.)
Wound up rebuilding at the 33,590 mile mark.
My opinion, once dusted, the wear continues.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
