A cool trick?

11 posts in this topic

I read in Dirt Rider magazine that you can use a heat gun to remove white marks that are the result of crashing on Yamaha blue plastic. Now, I never crash

:) however, I was wondering if anyone has tried this. Does it work?

This is an old trick to use a heat gun (perferred) or a high watt professional hair dryer to remove the white spots that develop for some reason in Yamaha blue fenders both stock and aftermarket (ie Acherbis, etc)

I don't know how many PROFESSIONAL HAIR benders we have on the forum so use the heat gun and be carful not to over do it and melt the plastic--go slow.

How bought this for a trick I read in the same issue of Dirt Rider

Spray baby oil under the fenders and other locations where heavy moto-mud might clump up and stick.

Then the dirt will come right off. For MX tracks, this sounds like the best tip I have heard of in a long time.

I haven't tried it yet, but can envision it will save a lot of clean up time.

john, WD40 and lots of Armor All will do the same thing. However; baby oil will give your plastic that fresh smell and soft feeling we all love! :)

Whoa I should try putting it on my Dad to see if it keeps my roost off him. :D

You know what is going to happen now? We are going to piss off our girlfriends/wives by leaving their hairdriers in the garage...as if we don't do that already by riding blue betty too much.

Back in the day we used to use that PAM (cooking lube for pans) stuff on fenders to keep mud from sticking. Sprays on so it is a little easier to apply. I'll bet a silicon spray would work too.
