Yes I thought exactly the same about making up some rubber covered plates and as Mark Broadhurst states his don't leak I would think this would be how he does it.

NEWSFLASH - Mark Broadhurst said his products were faultless and everyone else's are s**t.

Did he invent welding, and everyone else just copied his idea too?

:lol:

Show me a scooter dealer, engineer, mechanic, or tuner who claims they have a 100% success rate and who are completely faultless....and I'll show you a liar.

This will be my last post on this issue. Yes, you're right I did reply earlier, but that was before you had pressure tested the Casing. Why would you not say anything, even if you had waited 2 months. You should get back to me if you are not happy with something we have done, so in the first instance we can try and rectify it and secondly you could demand some, if not all of your money back. Like I said previously, we have had a few out of hundreds of Casings that have required re welding, with no problems, why would you not trust us....you mark where it's leaking and we'll re weld it. You are right with the suggestion of making blanking plates so we could pressure test, I admit that, but too late for that now though. all this doesn't resolve your issues now, so if it is a refund you wish.....no problem, text or email me your bank details. I am afraid I can't think of anything else I can do, other than falling on a sword.

Thanks for that Paul great gesture I tried ringing twice when it first happened couldn't get through and I also tried to be honest when I started this post but I don't wait around that's why I bought a new casing the next day anyway this is the last I'm saying on this
