hi all...was out checking my tyre pressures this morning and I noticed the right hand crashbars
were not attached at the bottom.on closer inspection I can see there rubber mounted to a plate
attached the the block....ive had a look on motorworks and they sell the plate needed...
as a quick fix could I glue it back together with a 2 part epoxy glue....
both atachments have come off but is still held on the top ok...

I have found that with rubber you are best to clean the surfaces with acetone and use superglue on them.

If it's under about 15°C the superglue wont work.

Hi Aeronut,
 I had the same problem a few months back .When I purchased Big Red
I trailered her home using straps on the crash bars and through the frame at the back. When we got home the bar was flopping by the top mount. I got a new one from the dealer for a reasonable sum, and a few
days later managed to grind off the forward nut on a curb in a parking lot during a sharp turn!
(not sharp enough I guess!).

Before you go splashing out on new tyres you should check the valves. If you have the screw in metal valves they have a tendency leak where the "rubber" seal breaks up with age/alloy crud build-up.
