PostSubject: VS1400 drive axle cover   Sun Aug 09, 2015 8:47 pm

I've had my drive fitted for over a year now bit I've not finished the look really. Is there any covers to buy for the axle and for the bolt once I remove it?
The wheel is out right now but when it's in it looks like a cover is missing and would make it look much better with one on.

Never heard of one, maybe there is. Easy to mod something to fit the axle. Made and fitted a flag to my surplus to requirement suspension bolt.

The VS1400 has a chrome cap to cover the spindle, you'd probably get one from robinsons foundry? the suspension bolt? remove it and get the grinder out or make use of it like Dave did (I think Peter did something too) there's usually plenty of plastic fake swing arms on ebay that could easily be cut to suit the 1400 drive if you like the swing arm look?

I suppose the suspension bolt I may be able to use for a side mount reg plate. Otherwise I'll just cover it somehow. I'll look at Robinson's foundry. Cheers.

For the suspension bolt I got a friend to make up an alloy cover & finished it off with a stainless washer & domed nut to cover it up but I think I'll be giving Robinson's a bell as like Rattler my spindle bolt hole is uncovered. 
Thanks for the idea Simbo!
