Repairing Broken Tabs

Anyone ever attach a tab / broken fairing mount back to the fairing? I have a mount that was close to the radiator that broke off my large middle fairing. It is not a body mounting point it just holds a grommet that attaches the inner plastic fairing under the headlight assy.

I saw some stuff on the net "Plastex" ... just wondering if anyone has had any luck attaching stuff back. I also have two tabs broken on the side fairing under my seat. You have to take them off to basically start any job which requires removal of the seat so not sure if there is anything strong enough to hold.

Drop your bike ?
Plastic welder. No I don't have one. You can fibreglass some things but it does not flex like plastic and will break down the road.

No did not drop the bike . Thats the strange thing about it. Its a pretty solid piece of plastic that broke off. I have not bumped anything ... the only thing I can think is since it was so close to the radiator the plastic weakened from getting hot/cold.

It snapped clean ... its hard to see in the pic but the paint is bubbled up like it was burned.

Have to get with you on that when I get a chance. I dont see the point in scrapping a perfectly good fairing

Gorilla glue works great. Used it to fix a tab on my side cover and a handle on a spreader. Stuff is awesome and sets up like iron.
