SWINGING ARM COVERS

Post by freeride on Sun 28 Feb 2016, 5:52 pm

Any suggestions for a supplier for swinging arm covers. I'm sure it's been covered before but not sure what we all call them? However,I'm not paying full price but I just want something to fill the holes up that OK and possibly shiny.

Once you have them off, its a good time so get in there with a dremel and get rid of all the rust that cakes in there. Hammerite the cavity and then bung a whole bunch of LM2 grease in there before sticking the covers back on.
