or you can also buy the plastics off other members with the same bike for cheap.... (jesse, I have that other tail fairing in good shape if you need it)

Damn, that' tight. I could have done that with my ex500 fairing...but then I suppose I wouldn't have a 'fighter.

And anyways, I didn't want to go searching through the underbrush for little pieces of plastic.

I got this. http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=41592

I have only used it once, and pretty much suck with it. Guess I need practice. I actually have a set of EX500 plastic I have to rebuild. I have to make up some pieces and then weld them and the larger cracks up. I then plan to fiber glass the bigger holes, and use spot putty the fill the smallers ones.

I have actually used a soldering gun to fix small cracks in the past. Works better if you use an extra piece of bodywork to lay over it, then you can melt it all the way around.

Looked like your job came out great! I need a paint booth like that, with racks and stuff!! Hell, I wish I could just keep the bugs out of my paint jobs!!

This is the plastic welder I use: Ebay Link. It's a pretty decent kit as a whole and even comes with a How-to dvd. Similar to welding metal, if you take your time and practice on scrap plastic similar to what you need to repair (ABS), you can make some excellent repairs. Also, here is a little "How-To" on plastic welding: CycleForums Linky.

The plasti welders i've used are fairly decent. have gotten good results. the plastic repair kits for 30 or 50 bucks blow chunks.
