Looking great bud! Need to still sort my seat and water too... Problem is that my seat has a big petrol cap inset for the rear tank and I dunno if it can be made to look nice with a new cover and foam. hahahaha. I'm getting a new better bashplate as mine took a beating last year, and gonna get a water tank built into it. Did you get that cap repeater of yours sorted?
I am doing this with the water, tools. Etc.
Does not nether me when I ride at all.
Took it loaded on a Maraisburg run with no problems at all

Same problem, same race, different year!

I need heat shielding for my fuel line!  I am going to cable tie this away from the exhaust(also fibreglass wrapped) somehow, but I need some shielding to go over that fuel line.  See the pic below.



I need something that can slip over the fuel line.  Where can I get something like this in Cape Town?

That ceramic tape I got for the exhaust header did a serious treat, I have loads of aluminium tape if that would help? (no idea if it would to be honest)
So much of win it hurts! ^.^

It possibly could, but I am looking at something that I can slip over the fuel line.  Please ask around, I am running out of time and true to form, I am a "Sunday evening homework" guy!

Closest to you in the CBD is to go to Powerflow Exhausts in Salt River - ask Dick / Andrea for some "marglass" - tell them Justin sent you

It is a fabric with a shiny silver reflective side - made by bosal exhausts and used to shield fuel and electrical lines from exhaust heat.

Measure and cut a strip - fold it over and staple the two ends together with a normal stapler - silver side must be on the outside facig the heat source to reflect the heat and shield the fuel line

Sorry for cross posting, but I had to cast the net a bit wider.

Thanks for the advice Jagsding.

You can get braided fuel line from Hosefit in Paarden Eiland (021) 510 4299 that should do the trick.

Added a new 3mm Polycarbonate screen last night.

Template :


Heatgun'ed it to give it a curve.  I tried the oven method and it works well, very well, but I did not have time last night and I did not really have anything to bend it around.  I could also not find my piece of felt to bend it on.


Anyway, it came out well.

To do on my list :
  • Mount the hooter
  • Mount the spot
  • Wrap fuel line and pull it away from exhaust with a cable tie.
  • re-wrap the exhaust and use tie wire to keep it nice and tight.
  • Wheel bearings
  • Front break pads
  • Figure out something with the GPS
  • Mount the CAP/compass (if I am happy with it's durability)
  • Change tyres and tubes, ultra-heavy duty
  • Bathe the bike in lock-tite
