Fitment Procedure

This fitment procedure assumes that the Recoveri manual data capturing process is used:

The accredited fitment person, with reference to SANS 534-1:2010 will follow the process outlined below:

  1. Inspect the sealed microdot container. (if the seal is broken or there is evidence that tampering has occurred, do not use the contents-place the container inside the ‘empty container’ Returns Receptacle and report)
  2. Open the container and mix the adhesive and dots together with the brush applicator provided.
  3. Brush a small amount of dots and adhesive onto the Recoveri Vehicle Registration Certificate in the space provided.
  4. With reference to SANS 534-1 Compulsory Positions, begin by brushing a small neat amount of dots (about a 30-40mm diameter patch) onto the information plate containing the motorcycle Vin No. If this plate cannot be accessed or is not attached, then locate the position where the chassis Number is stamped and brush the same as above-  1/2 positions
  5. In the same manner, continue marking the other compulsory areas:
  • Chassis or Frame - 6 positions on chassis/frame
  • Drive Components - 6 positions
  • Suspension Components - 8 positions
  • Instrument Panel - 2 positions
  • Engine Control Unit - 2 positions
    If there are excess dots, then mark optional areas listed as:
  • The engine or components- 4 positions
  • Other areas - 4 positions (under seats, steering column, rims etc)
