    Hi Guys

    I purchased a badger tip from a guy of the forum. Spent 4 hours yesterday trying to sit it and had the worst day in forever.
    I know have a sore and badly bruised right arm due to me sticking my arm down so many times to re clamp it.
    I would fit it in place on the tip start clamping it and it would slide off. When it did stay on and i would get it nice and tight. Would go to put the pipes on it and it would slip off from the bottom again.

    Must of happened at least 20 times. My fist then went against my door in the shed which has a nice hole in it :).

    Any advise would help.

    Mine popped off once at the turbo end, so I feel your pain bud, but lucky I have Tuffty on whatsapp! :laugh:

    It's very tricky to get on, but once on and clamped up, it's not going anywhere, so surprised it slips off easily, and I'm running the V1 version.
