don't use that stuff on ANYTHING that holds weight or stress.

I've seen many a thread about this stuff on other sites populated by some of the most talented builders in the uk...and its been universally panned!

I wouldn't use it on subframes etc...I guess its cool for battery boxes...but from what I've read...if used incorrectly ( don't beleive the hype/claims) it can cause you big problems

just passing on whats been said for the last few years across the net!

I've also been using this stuff for a while now, under the brand name of Lumiweld and echo what's been said so far.
Great for repairing damaged/cranked engine casings etc, but the manufacturers don't recommend it's use for structural work.

Mini update
I've made some brackets to re-position the fairing to work with
Fat Bars, I'm still waiting for the Fat Bar Risers to be delivered.
Streetfightertore.co.uk keep tellin me the've been posted
but I aint received owt. pullhaur2
When I've fitted the bars I can adjust the fairing and measure it up for the final (pretty)brackets to be made.
The seat has come to a halt. badmood
My idea was to make it slide between Rider only position and 'With pillion' but I think I bit off more than I could Chew digging

Ha I've got the same kind of problem with my CB.
As it's to become a cafe racer I originally was going to fit/adapt/make some rearsets.
But if my daughter wanted to go out on it I'd be knackered.
Because I needed to fit a different tank and seat unit to get rid of the eurostyle look, I figured kill two birds with one stone and fit a shorter rounded tank, to give the same as moving the pegs back and that way keep the pillion pegs.
Eventually I got a CB900C tank from the US, but banging my head against a wall on the seat.
Strangely I thought a seat would be easy, but doesn't quite work out like that does it buddy?
