    How old were the gators and were they Triumph?, I paint a very thin coat of ACF50 on mine in the hope that it prolongs the life of them as I had gators on my Sportster that split after 2 yrs.

    @Duckadiledundee :laughing: your time will come. I never do much more than a quick wash on mine, yet today spent hours on it. :rolleyes:
    Switched it on, wheeled it out the garage, pretended I was going somewhere. Sad really :sob::sob:

    The best stuff I’ve used on rubber is Gummi Pflege. It conditions rubber and stops it from drying out and cracking. https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/1676147219...N9FqE0yqQ1wDvO-uc-PmC5wTEX4AA90BoCEq8QAvD_BwE
    I’ve used it on bike bits as well as the door seals on my car and don’t get cracked or sticking seals. Maybe it’ll help on your gaiters? :cool:

    More cleaning today and warm up engine along with a ride up n down the lane to throw some oil around engine n box.
    Your not alone, and matter are made worse as so many bikes today have a mix of yearly parts :-( persistence is the only forward option :)

    Got to ride the Daytona :)

    Not working today so doing another Blood Bike shift - and had to ride my bike to collect vehicle I'm using. Will get to ride it back later too :)

    Glad to report all my recent work appears to have paid off and it's running sweet as a nut - can't wait until I can try it on some decent roads and do some trackdays.
