repairing motorcycle saddle bags is just as easy as eating
Motorcycle parts like saddles are provided with products that
can make them look new and desirable again. These repairs are
very easy. In fact, sometimes it only takes a visit to your
reliable motorcycle store or home depot.
Saddle bag with cracks on it are not pleasing to the eyes. In
addition, it contributes to the overall unattractiveness of the
How do I do repairs? Actually, a friend taught me how to. First,
for cracks, you can use tape on the inside and pressurize thick
glue with a piece of flexible plastic into the crack. You need
not use sand paper because the glue and plastic will be almost
unseen. For best results, you can use plastic pipe glue that can
be found in the plumbing section. This glue dries up even
without heat application.
ABS shavings can also be used to repair saddle bags. It
dissolves effortlessly into the liquid within five to ten
minutes. If you want a richer mixture, add more shavings. Mix it
properly. To make the surroundings of the crack rough, use some
220 grit sand paper. When it is already rough, apply the mixture
over and into the repair area. In order not to seep out or at
least minimize the chance, begin from the inside of the bag and
place some foil on the other side. You can clean messy edges
with wet or dry sandpaper. Make sure that ventilation is good.
If you can have a fan blowing away from you - the better. It
helps in achieving easy and mess-free repairs.
Other miracle products are the liquid plastic by melting ABS in
a solvent, thick black plastic that repairs without the
application of heat and black ABS Cement. Repairing can be that
easy even without heat!
I have repaired saddle bags before - some having cracks and some
are far worse. My tools are the tape, plastic pipe glue,
shavings and the likes. They can make miracles. Fiberglass is
also a solution. Nonetheless, it is hard to have permanent
bonding to the plastic since it is slippery. However, you can
try them too.
