CNC Racing Frame Plugs

Hey All,

I have a quick question for those of you that have experience with the CNC Racing Frame Plugs. I bought a set for my B3 800 a little while ago and have finally found some time to install them. I've noticed there is a straight metal rod which doesn't appear to be needed. The installation instructions don't mention the metal rod at all. Any idea what it is for?Name:  20190217_122704.jpeg

Doesn't it fit into the hex on the plugs? I'd think it is a long wrench.

According to the instructions, that's to hold the nut for the frame plate caps. It's on the brake side so you need to feed it from the shift side. I can see the inner hole of the nut is hex shaped, like your mystery metal rod.

You sir are a genius! The metal rod is the "tool" mentioned in the instructions. As you said, it's used to push the cylindrical nut (or "special nut" as they call it in the instructions) through the frame from the clutch side to the break side. It holds the nut in place until the cap denoted "D1" is tightened on the break side.

Thanks for that! I need to try and touch up a tiny bit of paint and will then fit the caps. Name:  20190218_132815.jpeg

Love seeing threads like this. There is nothing more frustrating than sitting down to work on the bike and getting caught up on something.

I fitted mine last night. I dont think the instructions could be any more vague if they tried.

I'll give the plugs one ride before they fall out i rekon.

Use loctite and you'll be fine.

Loctite As in 'thread lock' or 'superglue' ? Its more relying on the rubber rings holding tight inside the cup - just cant see it lasting long.
