  • Need some Plastic/Fairing help

    What type of repair method should I use for this portion of the fairing that has broken off

    (the right side has been broken off for a while and I do have the original piece)

    Plastic Welding?

    you forgot duct tape...

    I would look into plastic welding... i think that would give you the best chance of it being a permanent job.

      Plastic welding is the best method. Next best is going to be glass but you really, really gotta prep the surface up rough or it will never stick.

            Plastic weld I agree on but only if it isn't a high stress area IMO. I have some to do also but I am thinking new plastics instead because I don't quite trust my talent as a plastic welder yet.

              Plastic weld if it is a mounting point / high-stress point. Otherwise just glass it.

                I had some plastic welding done to repair the fairing on my previous bike after I went down. I paid the guy $50 and he basically filled in everything I needed sloppily.

                When he was finished (took about an hour) I sanded the welds flush and smooth, then had the piece stripped and repainted. It was as good as new and had no weak points.
