Re: Wanted 'Seat Concepts' seat for Husky FE450

Yes, get it rebuilt. I used these guys for my Triumph. https://www.viking-motorcycle-seats.co.uk/ Although my FE 450 seat was done before I found them, they will tailor it to your exact requirements. If it makes the bike too high, get an adjustable lowering kit from Freestyles near Tunbridge Wells. ...

With attitudes like that no wonder we’re miserable sods in the south east. ;) :lol:
It’s taken years of study and practice to be this grumpy.

They will be expected to put up acres of glasshouses I suppose. :roll:

Re: Hole in boot instep

I'd try Sikaflex - it's a bit more robust than standard silicone. Got to be worth a go..... D I used to have some of that for sealing the headlight on my TVR. It’s nasty stuff until it’s dry. Wear old clothes and sacrificial gloves, I seem to remember. Or is that POR15 chassis protection? :? Google...

Re: Hole in boot instep

Cheers guys. Not really planning on giving up but, being mediocre at my riding heights (I didn’t start trail riding until I was 55), any avoidance of cold, wet, both or too technical riding reduces my desire to ride to spring and summer. Horse trials are odd, max 30 miles Or so, sometimes half that,...

Re: Hole in boot instep

Oops. They are W2, not W4.
I need to try them on as I have weird feet. High arch and instep and crunched toes so all my weight is on the balls of my feet and the heel, which makes firm soles incredibly painful...see ski boots. :(

Thinking the same Dave.

Re: Hole in boot instep from footpeg spikes

Not sure but I would take them to a saddle maker. They may well be able to make a decent repair. Then I look to invest in pair of sealskinz socks. Do I mean instep? The footpeg spikes wear a hole in the underside between the sole and heel. Title changed. I went to our local cobbler wizard today but...

Hole in boot instep

My W2 boots have a reputation for their instep being damaged and, after some years, mine both have a small hole that goes through to the metal plate built into the sole unit. My wet weather riding is now minimal but the boots are so comfy and in otherwise good condition, although the toes have sligh...

Re: Another scam

Even with the possibly legit ones, I always go through the website. Always getting paypal, ebay and google but I’m probably being over cautious. Apparently codes 033**** or similar are likely to be dodgy. They also use random non existent uk numbers for your caller display. If there is a gap before ...
