Olá pessoal, apesar de estar relacionado com a AT, deixei este post original em inglês no ADV Rider, mas julgo que também poderá ser uma mais valia aqui para a Família XT - no meu caso, se tivesse encontrado na altura um post do género, tinha facilitado em muito o trabalho… Abraços!


Hey guys, just sharing some work that i have been doing lately on the bike, in order to have my plastics back together, hoping that someone will find this post helpfull enough so that they can do the same, if having the same problem- i believe it is a common issue for the Africa Twin owners that push their bikes “to the limit"

I had never used these polyester repair kits that you can find for sale, so i was pretty anxious to use it, hoping to use it well.

After some tips from a few friends, i can say that in overall it was a job well done, despite beeing the first time using these materials. What i can say is that it is extremely important to use a mask, because of the vapours of the resin, and also a pair of gloves - i mean, a lot of pairs of gloves. Everytime you put a layer of material, it glues all over your gloves and you need to keep changing them.

For me i got to the desired thickness by applying 3 layers, during a whole week. Its important that the material gets hard and dry enough before the next layer.

Also, very important to be methodical and patient, always display the material you are going to use already cutted and ready to apply, because the resin can harden very fast.

First up, the damage in hands….

To use as mould/cast, use ducktape in thin cardboard, and spread some vaseline on it, so that at the end its easier to unmold:

Its very helpfull to use a brush to aply the resin - you will need one for every layer, because obviously they also get hard as rock after using it once:

Aplying the material is easier than it looks:

To be sure that the material will glue it self the best way possible on the bike plastics, its also imortant to “cut” some pieces out of the plastic, to make it abrasive enough to the resin to penetrate in:

For the bolts that hold the front plastics, on the bottom bellow the headlights, i had to glue first a nut, so that after i could apply the resin and the fiberglass - you can rub some vaseline also on the bolt and the nut, so that the resin and the rest of the material doesn’t glue on them:

A bit difficult, but with some patience it gets done:

After unmoulding - don’t care much about the “looks”, everything goes into the inside, not very visible, so its just important that the final work is permanent:

Good thickness:

Very easy to drill:

Some finishing touches on the ones that would fit the other parts:

And voila! Hoping they will last some harsh riding!
