Morning Cruisers  
Apologies for the absence.
Good news at last !!
After several weeks of on off tragedy I think my Beast  is back on form.
Had the exhaust down tubes welded and the rattling seems to have curtailed somewhat   
They had come adrift at the the tube top and have had welding / surgery but its only a temp fix.
The fuel issue was a little more than a stuck float (although it was sticking) Thanks Simbo.
The bike has done 15K in 14 years and it appears there was a lot of gunk in both the tank and carbs.
More standing around than rolling me thinks.
Even the cutting out in traffic when the fan kicks in seems to have subsided.
Anyway Chocks away :}

Got some questions for you lads that will help me in the future.
My baby has an OEM exhaust and Im told it will need fixing with a new one sooner rather than later.
Its a vz800 (2000) and the nearside pipe passes under the frame.The After market pipe world seems a mine field of models and Id like some guidance please.
I'm not looking for throaty Dinosaur impressions , so the sound isn't that much of an issue . I'm looking for clean lines and ease of fitting. Most of the pipes I've seen seem to feed either between the heads or round the back of pot 2 .
My main concern is having to fabricate hangers or brackets. I don't really want to be welding extra bits on the frame if I can help it !!.I'm looking for a complete system at a bargain price ?? LOL 
The other question is regarding VFM parts . Where to shop ?? I have some clutch slip and will fit another clutch in the near future. Do i shop on Fleebay or are there more helpful , value places out there.
Ps Thanks again for all the helpful , knowledgeable info .

Glad you got the Beast back on form   As for value for money parts? I usually look on eBay and then ring their shop just to confirm that they know what they're selling and they're not just selling a load of knocked off gear? Other than that it's going to main dealers which are expensive or going to places like these.
