    Hey Shank, which bash plate is that? Does it make things a bit warm around the engine?

    I agree, the blue looks very nice, but I got the 'white' so I could see how much fuel I have in my tank. Never regretted thast decision.

    Cruz It Is a HYDE bash plate, I've had no issue with the engine getting to hot. It also has the HYDE left side case saver.
    I bought the bike from Dean Nuttall, he used it as his training bike for Dakar. He never had any issues with extra heat as far as I'm aware.

    Cruz sent me an under seat tank that has some issues with a couple threaded inserts.

    Thanks heaps mate. :thumb

    I'll have a go at fixing these with some 3M DP8005 crossed link polyethylene 2part apoxy and some nut serts. The apoxy is $50 (that's cool) but the applicator gun is $150!!! Anyone got an applicator I can borrow?

    image.jpeg

    The Vortex ECU is fitted, the Cyclops LED headlight globe (bright), Steg pegs, phone ram mount. The Vapor speedo is all sorted.

    I'll fit the mounts for the Kriega bags soon and do a look/see for the luggage. The Giant Loop Fandango tank bag arrived. Nice size/shape for this bike. I'll see how the two Desert Fox bladders will work draped over the tank like tank panniers once they arrive.

    Will run something like 15/48 gearing.

    Yet to check where the current dampening settings are at, sag and all that.

    Haven't had much of a chance to do anything too major with the bike or go for a decent run with work and this bloody weather. Carn Spring!!!

    I bought a repair kit from SuperCheap (or somewhere similar) that was designed for plastic fuel tanks

    It was after I holed one of the Rally Raid tanks, which they subsequently offered to replace

    It was very inexpensive from memory - few dollars - blurb on packet sounded confident, and you'd think there would have to have been some testing involved re' possible ramifications with a fuel tank ...

    That sort of thing wouldn't do the job?

    Depends on what the tank is made of Hoots.

    I did buy some guff from Supercheap to repair a busted chainsaw tank. Worked very well, but I have never smelt anything else so offensive. I looked into the specs of this stuff but it won't work on this tank. These are made of what's called 'crossed link polyethylene'. The only adhesive I've been able to locate that will work with the material is the 3M DP8005 due to its unique characteristics. It has a 6 month shelf life and you need to use within 10 seconds! If it wasn't for this product, I think this tank would be stuffed. So here's to hoping.

    The berg tanks have had a lot of people use many different products looking for a fix and repair and only one or two have been successful with the material used to make them.

    I am mate. The brain box has been clunking away.

    One of the successes of this adhesive is getting the 10:1 ratio correct and I only have 10 seconds!

    The plungers at different ratio's can be purchased separately as can the mixing nozzle so that's a start.

    Maybe modify a caulking gun.

    Some 6mm round black steel bar(the soft steel not bright), bent into a tight U shape, file the legs of the U the same length for even delivery?

    Hoorang, the plungers come separate in different ratio's so that's not a prob as is the nozzles. It was the applicator on it's own around the $150 mark.

    I found this - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/50ML-AB-...b63e111&pid=100033&rk=1&rkt=8&sd=262488532283

    ok, I have seen applicator nozzles / tubes like that.
    Yep, specific for the correct mix rate
    is it 10 secounds that you have after the two parts have been mixed?

    If so, you could get the amount by weight (50grams of part A, 5 grams of part B) mix up and apply, but yes, the 10 seconds is a problem.
