    GB Racing engine cover damage

    Had an off in the wet at Oulton. Ixon air bag worked well - good to know!
    Bike survived remarkably well with only damage to the GB frame slider and engine cover - totally did their job!
    I've bought a new bullet for the frame slider but some guys recommended just sticking a thick bit of plastic to the engine cover (which has worn down but not through) in order to extend its life.
    Anyone ever done that? (as opposed to just buying a new cover for £60).

    Id just replace the cover. Different materials wear different.

    So the cover worked perfectly probably saved you £1000s in damage and you want to bodge it. I know what I'd be doing

    Replace it as you will likely regret the decision not to if you crash again…

    This looks remarkably like what happened to John I was sharing the garage with at Oulton? Gen3? We’ll I say share but you were kind enough to keep an eye on my old bus for the night, while I done a runner to the pub.

    I thought it was you John. It’s Peter with the Gsxr that you kindly kept an eye on overnight. Bought the slick front off you.

    Ah....nice one Peter. Hope you and your pal got back safe and sound.
    I picked up some new wets and new engine covers! Off to Donnington Friday and Saturday. Hope to catch you on another day at some stage.
