    Ride plate extension/JB weld

    As anybody tried using JB weld to hold a ride plate extension on.I did it and will give it a run when the weather a little better(to freaken cold).I will post pictures some time today.

    How many extensions to you plan to keep putting on when it falls off if you do any serious riding and jumping? That sounds like the redneck way of doing things. I hope you dont use duct tape and bailing wire to repair things also. LOL

    No way,I think it will hold very well for my test run before I get it welded on.We use jb weld on parts were I work and it holds up to the test if done right.

    I think Buddydoo is on to something. I don't think this is a redneck idea, i think it's a great idea. Use JB weld to test different sizes and shapes of rideplate extensions and then once you find what works best for you, then weld it on permanently. Makes sense if you ask me and i've used JB weld for lots of stuff with great results.

    I don't weld but have had welders tell me that welding aluminum that has had epoxy on it is something that they don't want to do no matter how clean it looks.

    I work with welders and they said it would work.I'm trying a 3/4 extension to see how it works.It's good for a test and if it stops some of the bouncing at top end it will be welded on.I see it like this,it won't costed me a penny just for testing or to get it welded.

    There's a lot of pressure back there Buddy..you're talking about enough force to break your finger if you were to hang it off the rideplate..I don't think it will hold for long. I hope you got a good diving mask.
