Plastic Welder

Anyone have a plastic welder that knows how to use it? I need a front fender repaired on an f4i if it's repairable. Call me at 281-226-0396. I am willing to pay unless it's as much as a fender would cost me to replace.

if its a clean break you can reinforce the inside with some ABS epoxy. its the same plumbers use when they join to PVC pipes together. ive used few but the best one so far was "Plumbers Goo" and it was in a purple tube. i found that one at Walmart but if you visit Home Depot they should have some ABS type glues.

there is also a product call plastics-fix that welds plastic. all you do is sand down and use body filler to make it smooth.

Give Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited a call. He knows a guy on 290 that does good work for reasonable prices.

Probably not worth the hassle if it's torn up bad. BTW, when did you get a F4i?

I bought the bike about 3 months ago or so maybe 4. The ol' katana only lasted about a month. The front fender broke where it mounts to the forks there is that long rectangular piece. It broke right in the crease on the fender. I think it's repairable. I have been trying to buy one but man these f4i parts are like gold. They aren't much cheaper than new ones. But it's all about supply and demand. I found a guy that can straighten the front wheel for $90. And the rest of the parts I've already bought.

As previously posted there has to be a place locally that specializes in bike plastics.
Although not local, I've had conversations with the owner of this place.....
