PostSubject: Neck Cover Tidy Up   Mon Jan 26, 2015 12:45 pm

I'd always hated the way the top of my neck cover didn't quite together - I'd always thought it was because they were a bit old & tatty.

" />

Then I ended up with a new(er) pair (came with a pair of side panels I picked up from ebay) - much better condition, that'll sort it then.  Fitted 'em yesterday - exactly the same.  Now, it's either a common problem or I'm very unlucky.  Closer examination reveals it's a crap design - whilst it has mounting lugs towards the tank, there's nothing to hold the front part together.  I was tempted to go back to my previous idea - black gaffa tape - 

" />

but decided that'd look as pants as it did last time, &, as I'd smartened the bike up, that just wouldn't be right.  Tossed around loads of ideas but couldn't think of anything.  Then looked at the speedo I'd just fitted back on & thought of speedo - tank trim.  Hunted around in my Big Box Of Bits & found the remains of that project.

Bit fiddly to fit & not perfect, but a definite improvement

Good job, a few of us did that a while back. I have it all around my tank and clock housing.

I think I will be doing this to my neck covers in the next couple of days. It's always bugged me gut I couldn't think of an easy way around it.
