Plastic Panel Tips

When taking modern plastic panels of your bike to carry out any maintenance you will find that they have a no of rubber grommets or plastic lugs holding them in place, to make refitting and future removal much easier raid the first aid box and get the Vaseline/petroleum jelly out or go to the chemist and ask for a large tub of Vaseline, but be prepared for some strange looks. Smear this over the rubber grommets and plastic clips this will make reassembly and future removal much safer, you are less likely to brake the lugs/clips off and cause any damage, word of warning, don’t use oil or grease, especially spray grease as these have solvents in them which attack and embrittall the rubber/plastic.
