    Shit mate. Why didn't you say that earlier? And why didn't I think about that? I'll have to see if I can get to it with all that clay to the sides of it.

    Any chance of a quick picky?

    Taco, you do realise you are going thru hell and back to make an x-challenge mate !!!

    On the other hand, next time I need someone to make me a fairing, you will be one of the first people I call ;)

    That's a good story, have another one?
    Hell? More like heaven. :rofl

    Not so much an X Challenge. His swing arm won't break.....and it costs a whole lot less and is much more fun to build what you want than just buy it.:freaky

    I think I did a few pages back.

    But I'll post a pic later tonight. Going to hit up the mountains right now on my KTM. Whoop, Whoop! :freaky

    I never used it on the parts, BUT the last layer of the mold was paper towels to keep the spinters to a minimum. I like the newspaper idea though, add some layers on the cheap.

    Ha ha .... That's rich coming from you. Not much BMW left on your bike. ;)
    I'd probably do the same on the X cause doing work on that isn't much simpler. Also making a decent fuel cell is a lot riskier I'm thinking. :D

    Kich The Muthurf'r??!! You've changed.
    Would appreciate that cause I can't quite picture it. Looking at the throttle body turning the manifold around would make it point to the rear, wouldn't it?

    Nah, I haven't changed, just wanted a smaller bike for stuff like this that we rode today. And yes, the throttle body faces backwards now.

    Yeah, we rode with Chitown in Death Valley and he took an R1200RS up a nasty hillclimb... almost made it...

    Cracked his valve cover though. That's why I will never put one on...

    Yeah, his 800 was in the shop for a major rebuild so that's why he was on the boxer.

    I'm still waiting for the vid of that one. We were all at the top with cameras...:lol3

    If it's in my head it's real:D. You can't tell me that there's really not women who are motorcycle mechanics, that have beer taps for nipples, an ass that acts as a beer opener, and a vagina that also serves ice cream sundaes.

    Well, there is a woman IBA member that owns and operates a MC shop up in Kernville. Pretty nice girl.

    But I doubt she has the Other features.
    (features? :huh )

    Ok. So I must gave gotten cocky because I'm struggling trying to make a seat pan prototype using heavier fabric (9 oz I think) with some roving on top until I ran out of resin. Just can't avoid air bubbles. Am I meant to cut the fabric in pieces or keep trying to lay it up in a single piece. I tried that with this first cause I thought this is what you do for cosmetic panels and the fairing. Is that right?

    If you can do it in one piece you should. A couple of relief cuts here and there is the alternative before going for multiple pieces. Using a 2x2 twill for cosmetics is the best way to go. It's the most formable and drapeable of all fabrics.
