Yes I agree something hard as suport but I just put some protective tape on the outside as well so dirt does not work in to the crack and see how it goes.
The picture is what I see so I'm looking over it.

I don't know once a bike is a certain age it starts to collect character, is one year old enough?

In my opinion a bike "starts to collect character" from the moment you start to make it yours with accessories and mods. That's your stamp of individualization, thus, she's yours.

On this lap I'm planing there is going to be some seriously hot weather. I'm going to have to carry more than enough water



This will help



Slippery enough



Yes it blocks air flow but just add it to the general confusion

I'm so glad I now have the Road 5 Trail

On dirt the Anakees may have the edge but on road the Road 5 is all about road. If the centre lasts as long as the Anakees il be happy 15,000km
The edge rubber is way better than me. It's slick compound and will always be there.



More than 25% of the overall noise is now gone

Yes I would like to own the crack but it's unsafe now new ones are dear enough to make it worth making my own. Especially seelng how it's one rock one crack I may need more.

A few changes



And cut it out



Bend some wire to get the bend





Some filing



Glued



3mm ply screwed and glued then smeared with plaster filler



Madstrad screen fits. I have done some experimenting with acrylic off cuts and think I know how the sheet is going to slump.



Lay the flat screen across the dish and angle two paint stripper guns one from each outside to heat the outside first.  Point to the centre of the dish so the air flows to the centre. As the acrylic heats it's going to bend away from the heat as it heats it expands.

Thing is, the right way is to put it in an oven and to do that I'll need help

This is really fascinating stuff dude. Nice work, keep it coming, I was very interested to see how you were going to manage to apply the heat evenly enough to get a uniform slump.   :047:

Complimenti Tioli, sei molto bravo e ingenioso e mi piace come tieni curata  la tua motocicletta.
