So you have a cracked plastic fairing on your bike. Most people trash it and buy a new piece.

Not anymore, you can fix it yourself easy. Here's the how to on how to plastic weld ABS plastic fairings. I start out with CBR 1000rr tail I fixed and continue the how to with the custom work I did to make an undertail.

Whether you're fixing a crack or doing custom work like me, the process is the same.

All four major bike brands: Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, and Honda all use ABS plastic Fairings on their sport bikes. ABS is weldable, and very easy to work with when heated with a heat gun, not all plastics are. You can buy extra ABS on Ebay for cheap for fixing holes or customizing.

Good post. Never thought of the way you did it. Seemed to work great. I always though of epoxy plastic or duramix repair.

yeah, post them up here:) I think any shattered plastic is repairable as long as you can piece all the broken up parts together...

The only time you'd question whether or not to do it is deciding what it's worth... would you rather spend the hundred bucks for a replacement or spend the time and effort to fix it for free?
