How hard is it to put the later model blue plastics on my Open Enduro?

I was wondering if its that hard to put the blue plastics onto my open enduro and my ones on my ttr are really scratched and cracked. And also this might be a long shot but what does it take to fit the blue tank on to the Open Enduro

 

Thanks, Dan

Wow - I haven't looked at that thread for a while Moo - what a lorra work!  I am feeling tired just reading it no

Lots of lessons learnt and it was nice to get feedback so that I know other owners found it useful in several different ways biggrin

Regarding the panels and f&r mudguards, these are totally interchangeable.

I was lucky when doing my project bike as I has spare frames to take the tank fixings off to weld to my purple frame before powder coating. There is a simpler solution and I have somewhere a bracket that would do the job. Will try and find it and post up a photo.

As promised, here are some photos of the bracket I mentioned:

And, stating the obvious, this is where it goes. I already have the mounts on my frame but it gives you the idea.

So anyone intending to use such a bracket would make it up first, sit the blue plastic tank on the frame with the big black rubber support in place, place the bracket on the frame such that the captive nuts line up with the tank mounts, mark it up and then MIG weld the bracket to the frame. Simples biggrinbiggrin
