Looking for some help. I have had my Canadian 900 (black with hondaline) for 35 yrs. Always stored inside, and all too rarely ridden. Been looking forward to a refresh for about a decade, and finally started. Engine is out, frame is stripped down for powder coat. I suspect that despite pouring over this forum for years, I will have a million questions. Already been in touch with Tom, for some PC.

My original pipes are ok, but far from great. Tiny hole in the bottom of one muffler and a few scratches in the chrome. I really like the look, and know of no way to repair. Itís been years since I have seen stock pipes available, but I am looking for something that is close in appearance without having to rejet carbs. Any ideas?

Also, there are a number of black colored bolts. I like the original translucent look, is there any way to freshen these up? Or do I need to pc or replace with new?

Plan is to rebuild the top end after pc. There is only 8,000 miles on it, but this is a one time only resto. Figured it would need new tensioner, maybe rings, definitely needs to be re-shimmed.

Thanks for your advice!

See if they are available new is my advice. If not then have them black anodized. There are probably a few places in Nashville to do that

Both mufflers have a drain hole in the bottom near where they are attached to the headers so that may be normal. You will know when the mufflers are near end off life as the inner baffles start to show through the outer skin. If that's not happening yet then you can hugely extend their life with a little trick I started doing close to 30 years ago. Assuming you have the cross pipe that joins the left and right systems together under the motor, early 900's didn't, then you can do this. Every couple of months and before winter storage, connect a shop vac to one muffler and turn it on. You should feel suction on the other muffler. Now spray copious amounts of WD40 into that suction air flow. Keep going until you smell it coming out of the shop vac. Then switch over and suck the other side while spraying again for about the same amount of time. Thats it. My system have been on my 900 for almost 30 years and is pretty much pristine.

However if your mufflers are shot then Marving make a nice repro. With or without headers.

Love the WD40 trick, question.....is the idea to try and repel any moisture thatís sitting inside those pipes? and would ACF-50 do a equal/better job? https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/cspages/acf50.php
