    I have a round Yoshimura carbon can from the 90s on my 'Blade.
    It's a bit tired so I want it rebuilt.
    I can't be arsed to try to do it myself.
    Please recommend someone who could do this for me.
    Preferably within easy drop off distance of Dunstable.
    Thanks

    I haven't really been biking much for the last few years.
    Got back from LeMans 24hr moto in October 2014 and the bike has just been sat in the garage since!
    My kids, divorce and music got in the way.
    Decided recently to TRY to get the 'blade back on the road - hence my query.

    I repacked the Yoshi on my YZF750, I don't remember any of it being difficult to do, but it was 20 years ago and it was an ally one

    Anyone with a drill and a rivet gun can do it.

    I get that you can't be arsed, but it is a really simple task.

    Don't want to try to do this myself. The end plates are riveted and I can't be arsed to go buy a pop riveter. Besides if I drill them out I'll probably destroy the carbon sleeve. Also I suspect it'll need a new baffle and internal welding - a skill I don't have.

    I could do it for you if the logistics work out. W. London though, you might have to post....
