Sugru is the new self-setting rubber for fixing, modifying and making stuff.

Hand formable

Hand formable

Sugru can be formed and shaped by hand for up to 30 minutes once it has been removed from its packaging.

Sticky

Sticks to almost anything

Sugru forms a strong bond to metal, ceramics, glass, wood and some plastics like perspex and ABS and rubbers like silicone and butyl rubber.

Air cures

Air cures at room temperature

Sugru is like modelling clay when you take it from its pack. Once it's exposed to air, it cures to a tough flexible silicone overnight using the moisture in the air.

Fix a BMW motorcycle instrument cluster Rebuild rusted parts

Fix a BMW motorcycle instrument cluster

sugru was the ultimate repair tool for my 37 year old instrument cluster for a BMW R90/6 motorcycle. 

Those instruments are really hard to find and very expensive to buy. Most of the plastic towers that hold screw threads did crack completely due to rust in the screw holders and expansion. So I had to rebuild parts of some towers and some had to be rebuilt completely. I did use original M3 screw threads and simply pressed them in sugru. 

The thing is that most of those instruments from the BMW Airhead models (air cooled boxer models 1970-1995) have this same issue on instruments and thus buying a "good" one is almost impossible, even cracked ones go for several hundred euro. Using a sugru pack for about 8€ solved the problem perfectly. Alen
