Spare rev parts uk

Recommended Posts

Morning guys and girls

I'm looking for a bit of help please I was happily flying my rev yesterday and gave my mate a go within 5 minutes there was a little pop followed by a " that's not looking right " looking at the lower left spar ! , with kite safely on the ground it was time for inspection with my mate saying " I hope I've not broken it ! " on inspection I find that one of the two rubber washers is missing letting the elastic cord half come out the sail ! So now I find myself looking for replacement parts in the uk has anyone any idea where I can get some please ??

Same deal here with a friend flying mine.

They are non critical so cut a new one out of a plastic bottle cap. Mount it so the dome of the cap faces the right way to be kinder on the sail. It got me out of trouble till the new parts turned up.

I think the genuine Revolution shock cord and washers come as a kit and cost me a fortune (for what they were) when I bought them last.

I just tie the bunjis in a knot an not bother with the washer. A field repair that became permanent. Puts the sail under a bit of tension but I don't mind that.

Well as a field repair I put both cords through the remaining washer and that did not affect the flying , I've just had the idea of trying some tap washers ! There cheep and readily available all over the place , there tough but not too tough, one other thing I have noticed is the cord has got granny knots on the ends so I'll change them for figure 8 knots as there bigger and easier to undo IMG_3662.JPGIMG_3661.JPG

Ok so I've added the tap washer , it's a little bigger than the proper ones but should do the trick but my OCD is telling me I need to change them all now !!! Lol IMG_3668.JPG
