Water in the sub frame

Post by Derick » Fri Sep 25, 2015 5:44 am

Just would like to make any new and existing owners aware of the sub frame filling with water issue:
Make sure to take the rear foot peg brackets off to drain any water out.
Leave the bolt holes exposed for a few days so the inside of the sub frame is completely dry.
Then, from under the seat, remove the fuse/tool tray or the white tail section to access the top of the sub frame tubes, then fill with cavity wax/ wax oil.
lastly bung the sub frame openings with plumbers silicone seal or similar to stop any more water getting in.
Job Done.
