  1. Leon, you live in the Netherlands. I would be shocked if you did not ride a bicycle! 😀 Ross
  2. Glad you are okay. Thanks for posting. For me the greatest takeaway and reminder in your post is 'Ride alert, watch the road'. Easier said than done when riding in an area with beautiful scenery (or nice bikes & fellow bikers). I have had had many riders recount the same experience to me. 'I took my eyes off the road for just a second and ...........Wham!'. Fortunately all of them survived unscathed. As for cyclists, I have had some tell me that riding a push bike gives you the same thrill as riding a motorcycle at speed on a curvy road. LOL! 🙄

  5. Thanks Seb. That's where I should have posted this thread in the first place. I the Moderator or anyone can tell me how to do that it's where it belongs.
  6. I did a forum search for PlastiFix, and your thread does not come up. can you please post a link. Thanks.
  7. I think that you are absolutely right. That's why I made the point of saying that one must make sure that the adhesive and technique match the type of plastic. There was a guy at the last local motorcycle show who was selling a kit for fairing ABS repair, but I have misplaced the literature. When it turns up I will post the details. In the meantime here are links to some advice. https://advrider.com/f/threads/repairing-broken-abs-parts.586425/ https://www.webbikeworld.com/repairing-motorcycle-saddle-bags/
  8. It might be different for each model. You have to look at the the back as Duc2V4 has posted. In his image you see the code PA6 +PPE which is mix of two different plastics. Usually it's just one type. Once you find the code Google it and you will find out the type of plastic. Some fairings are ABS which apparently is easier to work with. PPE is polypropylene which is notoriously difficult to glue or paint. My Givi E-41 cases are PPE.
  9. I came across this article and video and thought that it might be of use to anyone attempting to repair broken tabs on their fairings. Remember to always look at plastic Type code on the inside of the fairing before you buy the appropriate adhesive. https://diy-auto-repair.wonderhowto.com/how-to/fix-broken-plastic-tabs-bumper-0141489/
