Acebris Sahara Repair Help.

Looking for some advice on repairing a dime size gash in my Sahara tank. Anybody have any experience with plastic weld or other types of plastic repair?

I can't get pics to load on Photobucket for some reason, but I used clearance lights for trucks or trailers and mounted them in the hand guards.

Rocky Mountains house brand handguards with built in turn signals is another option.

Very cool! Was not sure if those would be a problem here in Alabama, but I can't find anywhere on the net that says that they would be.

This works well.

You might want to contact Acerbis and figure out what kind of plastic your tank is made out of. If it is anything like what Clarke tanks are made out of (cross-linked polyethylene), it'll be extremely difficult to repair. Plastic welding does not work, as the stuff gets really brittle if you do. I tried repairing a Clarke gas cap by melting the edges of the crack back together and it broke apart almost immediately.

A friend of mine has those and they work really well. He did get pulled over though because the cop couldn't see them. No ticket, however.

With that said, another possibility for a hillbilly repair if not to big of damage area, and if at an accesible and flat portion of the tank, might be to drill a hole to make the gash round, and use a flanged screw / gasket washer / tank / washer / lockwasher / nut, to seal the hole. Obviously there are plenty of reasons for this to not work, but if it is a small enough damaged area, at a flat portion, close enough to the gas cap so you can hold the nut, then it could work, in theory. Just throwing it out there on the slim chance that it could solve the problem at hand.

Acerbis Sahara Tank Repair

Thanks for the help, unfortunately its about 3/4 down on the rounded part of the shroud section. I was hoping that something like JB weld for plastic would possibly work but I'm still looking into it. Not a lot of info on the subject I'm finding out.

Maybe you can find an epoxy that is compatible with gasoline and plastic, and fill the gash as is, or clean it up a bit first.

Try here. Lots of info on adhesives, maybe too much. But you can call them too and ask for advice. Should be able to find out about gasoline and plastic compatibility, surface preparation, and more.
