Repair advise wanted

Postby Bas » Wed Nov 06, 2013 9:35 pm

Hello,

My Gts has some minor holes in the rear panels, due to the mounting brackets of the panniers that were installed
Does anyone know the best way to repair these holes.

Thanks,

Bas

How about black rubber blank grommets?

Will fill the holes with no messing, will look professional and will save the holes in case the pannier brackets ever go back.

Cheers

You have to refill them with some ABS-compatible material, then sand, re-sand and apply some filler, re-sand and spray with the original paint or a close one, which is bicomponent (in my experience, since the lacquer coat is tinted).

You may be better off searching for a couple of panels in e-bay or around here.

Given the options outlined in the last two posts, I'd say rubber bungs seem like an awfully good solution.

Thanks everyone for the advice!

I'll try Pachi's obtion and try filling it, or there must be a very cheap side panel for sale somewhere.
Crisis is still going strong in Holland, and after 20+ years of hard labour I'm currently 5 months unempoyed.
So I'll choose the cheapest way to repair for now without using the mentioned ugly rubbers.

What colour is your GTS, I'll keep an extra eye out for cheap replacements...

Bedankt Chris,

Ik heb een blauwe Gts, als je nog adresjes weet die betaalbaar zijn laat me maar iets weten.


Thanks Chris,

I've got a blue Gts, if you know any adresses that are affordable please let me know something.

Hi there, Bas:

It´s in Spanish, but no need for words, I think.

Chris, try this:

http://www.motosdesguace.com/

Do not go to the English version (worthless anyway). Keep going in the Spanish one. Click on Yamaha. Scroll down to the GTS and go to page 8.

Let me know how it turns out.

Cheers

Weird, they made an English page but there's nothing on it.

I saw the items on the Spanish version, thanks Pachi.

I think however that Bas would like Blue side panels, so he doesn't have to paint them...

it is always good to see a source of parts... :)
Cheers,

Chris

Thanks Pachi and Chris for the mentioned sites.

I was also looking on http://www.rsbikepaint.com
Has anyone have any experience with them?
And does someone know the difference between the paint quantity and lacquer quantity that are mentioned on the order page?
There are also two kind of colours you can order: The dark purplish blue pearl and the stardust silver and was wondering if they all should be used when I want to paint the rear side panel.
