Tank damage plus a few other areas
on: June 26, 2015, 08:14:55 PM
Does anyone know a decent smart repairer in the Bedfordshire area who could repair my tank? I have 2 very small and one larger dent on a newly purchased Crosstourer. The paint has not cracked or split so I am hoping it can be repaired.

I also need a new plastic engine cover for the throttle side of the bike as the existing one is badly scratched. Any links to places to buy would be appreciated or would love to hear from anyone who has managed to find the paint and repaired engine covers themselves.

Thanks

Try R & G, I have one of theirs on mine. Did you drop yours?? or was it a slow speed topple?? either way its a b+++++ when they go , I tried to stop mine and nearly put my back out . Another good point for  my old KTM adventure  - No problem if you dropped it and easy to pick up-

I didn't drop it (have not collected it yet) but the previous owner did not look after it which is a shame but it will get looked after now and look as good as new before too long.

I wouldn't bother wasting money on getting the wee dents fixed etc. Save your money for replacement screens and suspension components haha.

and only joking!
What do you mean it's raining....get ootside and ride the thing.

Buy the R&G casing cover and get a Bagster tank cover - hides all and cheaper than  getting stuff repaired  :305:
