    G'day Guys,

    I am just stripping the frame on my GSX and wondered if anyone knows a way to restore the wiring holders (see below) I know its a first world problem but thought I would ask as I have come this far :)

    I reckon they used something like Plastidip in the factory, i remember buying some in the late 80's for my Suzuki TF185 i was fixing, just came in a jar and you could dip your part in there?

    Might be able to use brush on liquid electrical tape too ?

    Or look at dual wall heatshrink from Jaycar, it's glue lined and thick, it wont fall off once it's shrunk

    Haven't seen the brush on tape before. Have used the thick wall stick heat shrink and it works very well.
