Old faring makes it to the repair bench.


finger-repair-plasweldWe introduced recently plastic repair patches for those who wanted an easy way of replacing missing pieces from their farings. It saves time and effort looking for matching plastic material that needs cleaning before it can be used as an insert.

This post illustrates what can be done with our 200 X 130 mm patch and a meter of welding rod.

We have had a broken faring in the workshop that we were going to repair and sell on. It has been on the shelf that long I can no longer remember what bike it came from. A couple of times it has been raided for spares to repair customers farings. I thought it was time to repair it and in so doing demonstrate what can be done with one repair patch.

The faring in question has had the end of the windscreen finger cut off to repair another. A template was cut from a piece of card as a guide from the intact side. Then laid on the repair patch and cut round. A bit of heat was applied to the cut out to shape it so it mimicked the curve of the finger. Then the edge of the faring and shaped piece had the edges chamfered so they could be tacked and welded together. In a number of places it needed over welding to build up the material so it was identical to the other side. Once the heat had dissipated it was machined and rubbed down with some wet and dry for a smooth blended finished. When painted you would not know that the bit had been missing in the first place.
