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.

      Polisport widens its line of bike protections with the new Clutch Cover Protectors, developed with exclusive Polisport design. Finally, you can have them in the aftermarket for the majority of the off-road brands and models. Polisport Clutch Cover protector will excel in rocky terrains and protects your clutch cover from impacts and scratches, allowing to preserve the re-sale value of your bike by keeping the aluminum clutch cover untouched.

      AXP Racing radiator cages stand out thanks to their 3 points fixing system. Indeed, this system keeps the original air deflector, it does not interfere with the maximum steering of the handlebar and forms a real protective cage around the radiators. Aluminium 4mm thick

      For my 2001 XR650R
      Searched around, and found some information, but I need a little more.
      Looking at an after market tank, which works best? I plan to go with the red, and would like it to match the OEM color. I will be running a Scott's Damper, probably. Any clearance issues?
      What range are you averaging with a 4.3 gal?
      I have considered the seven gal behemoth from acerbis, though it looks too wide for my tastes. Though extra fuel is good, but adds weight. Yes I know you can run it low, so why not a smaller tank?
      I've had natural colored tanks before, but I'm not racing so no need to check level, on the fly.
      Pictures would be great!!!
      Anxious to find out what the BRP heads are using, and what works.

      I am wondering how many use the 4.6 tank? Is it bulky feeling when full, and how well does the design utilize all the fuel in the tank? Do you need to really tilt it over to get the fuel in the "reserve" over to the other side? Please comment if you can. Thanks...
