I will wait to rip the old exhaust packing out until I have new in hand, but I bet your right, the end I can see would be in the best condition. I did see when looking to buy some of that online that stainless steel wool seemed to be popular and supposedly lasted 4 times as long, anyone have any experience or opinions on that ?

I will take your advice lineaway and not worry about the center silencer.

Took the head off to inspect and decarbon.
I forgot to take a pic of the piston before cleaning
but did take a few after. The piston had about a half milimeter (guessing) layer on it except for the side transfer ports area, it had no carbon buildup there. The cylinder looks good and feels smooth as silk.

Stainless steel wool is expensive and louder. I would stick with the fiberglass. By the way normal steel wool is flammable.

I got some "backyard trials" in........finally.

I may try to take the bike out for some easy riding on Sunday and see how the torn up hip reacts.
