Evo Mudguard Mesh

Recommended Posts

Any hot tips on how to make it stay stuck. The OEM sticky stuff gave up pretty quickly and household silicon just doesn't seem to bond with the smooth underside of the guard, reverted to duck tape for now.

I clean the surface and use hot glue or a product from Valco called VH 350. Also use some small clamps from the hardware store to hold it in place while either one sets up.

Hot glue gun as above also been practicing with plastic welding kit (hot air) with which you can carefully remelt the OEM hot glue ..maybe a good hair drter would achieve same result?

It's high time Beta made a 2 part rear mudguard assembly maybe like Gas Gas

Have used SuperGlue to glue the OEM stuff back onto the plastic and use a series of small plastic grip clamps (and grease proof baking paper) to hold in place for a while and have also used hot glue gun to reinforce or extend OEM stuff. The SuperGlue works best if the OEM stuff is already lifted but be careful and only use little bits - it really is a case of more does NOT equal better and you don't want it running through the mesh onto the other side. Annoying to have to do this on a brand new 2012 bike.
