Removing flex marks and scratches from plastics


Enduro Chris

Got white flex marks on your plastics?

Tools needed: cleaner, heat gun (adjustable works best)

Work description: Clean the plastics, take the heat gun and slowly heat it from the back side. Slowly heat until the plastic is changing the color. Let it cool and you´re done. In some cases you need to treat both sides. Test the procedure on some old parts first to get a feeling for the right temperature.

Got scratches on your plastics?

Tools needed: Sand paper (#100 - # 1000), cleaner, heat gun (adjustable works best)

Work description: Wet sand the plastics starting with the low grain first (# grain depending on the depth of the scratches) und finish with #1000 sand paper. Clean the plastics. Slowly heat until you see the plastic changing the color sort of like starting to melt. Let it cool down and you´re done. Test the procedure on some old parts first to get a feeling for the right temperature.

      I searched and couldn't find a similar thread. Modding season is upon us.I cleaned and oiled my air filter, changed my 13 tooth cs to a 14, cleaned and lubed the chain, changed the oil and filter, and installed my Battery Tender. It was a good day. Tomorrow, I ride.

      Seat covers use gripper material on the sides and top and have madgrip ribs. The gripper top and madgrip ribs combination allows the rider maximum grip for control and confidence required at the top level.
      The madgrip ribs use a unique material which is robust and harder wearing than all the other ribs on the market today.
      Madgrip ribs allows the rider maximum grip from sliding back under acceleration which give the rider control and confidence and allows the rider to easily move forward and re positing when required.
      The gripper material is hard wearing and durable, for extra protection CFX TCT protection can be added to the knee area to reduce wear or add extra grip.
