    Mudguard - is there a way to...

    Post by ditpBEN on Fri Apr 06, 2012 4:24 am

    With a standard front mudguard on a PX is there a way to get it off without messing about with taking the forks off?
    Mine has crap paint and i'm going to put a hugger on eventually.
    Thanks Very Happy

    Not really, unless you cut the fucker off
    That depends on condition and whether you want to keep it tho.

    If you just want to paint it then mask off the rest and give it a quick going over with a rattle can. Just remember if you cut it off, you've still not solved the problem of getting it back on...

    Thats what I did, masked it up and sprayed and its not great Crying or Very sad It really bothers me if paint isn't perfect, which is unfortunate as the whole scoot has crap paint! And I won't want it back on anyway if I get a hugger. Hmmm, i'll just think about it haha

    I haven't really tried tbh, but I may have to. I have filled my brake shoes and that seemed to solve my brake bidder Smile

    The T5 headset removal is straight forward, just a fuck about, the main difficulty is the fact they stopped making the tool and the oem locking ring, so you have to man handle the old one out and then half-bodge a new double lock ring set-up on.

    its always worth doing a proper job, just drop the forks out, then you can do a decent spray or just not be destructive and sell it or something.

    Put the stand on blocks of wood or bricks, take headset top off, disconnect speedo and if you have a drum you will need to disconect the brake at the bottom end, also remove the brake lever and disengage the cable so you can allow the headset bottom to move. on the neck of the steering column on the right there is a pinch bolt. take that out ( may be a bit stubborn ) the head set will come off with some side to side rocking and lifting. then there are some lock nuts that require a C-spanner to remove. the forks should then drop out. remember how the bearing came off.

    Hope thats a help.
