Quick question...solid slugs or will similar diameter tubing be sufficient as long as its around the same thickness of the original.

Default Re: angled frame slugs

i am struggling to find tube at the usual UK retailers (RSm metals4u, metal mania)...so for the frame slugs i am looking at using tubing which is what came from the factory. so, the top rail is 3mm wall thickness and would take an outside diameter of 28mm. the bottom rail/support is 2mm wall thickness and needs to be 24mm outside diameter. are these odd sizes?

could slightly larger outside diameter tube be slit to reduce its diameter or will that just fuck its strength up?

any other sources you UK guys can point me towards please? any other advice appreciated. thanks

it worth looking into pipe instead of tube. i have found both the XJ i did a few years back and the bandit the OEM metal used was closer match to pipe than tube, for inserts then you can use tube. example pipe is 25mm ( pipe is measured ID) tube 25mm (measured OD) works well

ride it like you stole it

Tube is measured by it’s OD. Pipe is measured by it’s ID.
