Took Chuck's muffler off while tire changing on his R12R...left on floor for maybe 20 hours. I got lazy yesterday when it got cold/rainy and went in the house...he wasn't coming today anyways.
As I was replacing it this afternoon, I heard it rattle as I rotated it and found all of this after much shaking and switching inlet/outlet orientation .I had the radio cranked on the prior day so maybe missed it.
I checked a few other mufflers on the floor close to this spot...no acorns or anything in them. They have a bit of soot on them, but don't smell roasted.
He runs with the sidecases most of the time so a pelting from above seems unlikely. He keeps in an attached garage that's fairly sealed...I wondered if someone is jacking with him...or a squirrel at his office?
Pretty funny anyways...have seen the mice nests before...but this is a lot of NUTS
