Drain hole in exhaust muffler?

My OEM exhaust muffler has just been sandblasted. The process created some small holes which I have filled with JBweld. But now I'm wondering if one of them might have been a drain hole?

I can't...

DR250 USD forks upgraded

Last year I started doing up a '92 DR250S. Now that the job is finished (I hope) so I thought I'd show you the final improvements.

Raptor petcock

My old one would occasionally leak a little and the raptor one is so much better looking imo and easier to turn. Try this link http://www.boats.net/parts/detail/yamaha/Y-5LP-24500-00-00.html

DR250S project part 4

I braced myself for the phone call. It was a long wait, the bike actually sat in their workshop for six days before they started looking at it! This was about five weeks ago now.

DR250S project part 3

The bike's fork guards were a disgrace, more grey than white and cracking with age. My local Suzuki dealer is just 10 miles away, and to my delight they were able to source new fork guards and...

DR250S project part 2

There was bad news almost immediately I got her home. She sounded very noisy when I rode her to the garage, it sounded like the camchain perhaps. She failed her MoT on the exhaust and tyre. I ordered...

Basic rail to rack/carrier

On eBay recently there was a guy in the States whose service was to take a basic grabrail and weld bits on to it making it into a lovely rack. He could do it in different colours. Does anyone know...

Missing seal?

Is this door for the air filter meant to have a rubber seal at the back or not?
