ok i have a friend who is a plumber/pipefitter who used to have a bike.he told me he used his abs epoxy for plumbing to patch his fairings before.he said this bonds to the plastic better than just plastic epoxy that you buy.anyone else heard of this?

Sort of. I've used ABS solvent to repair broken panels before. It takes a little bit of practice to get it right (using a spare bit of fairing will help you get it right), but it's very strong when you do get it right.

I've never heard of ABS epoxy, but that doesn't mean anything.

Napa has some plastic welding two part epoxy that works wonders. Comes in a plain black tube, squirt mix and apply. I found it works best if you take a dremel or drill with a burr on it and V out the crack area on both sides.

Im alabout 3m's product called "duramix" the 4010 compund is perfect for the bikes and ive use id on many of my friends bikes. Its designed for the material of the bike fairing, it is also very stong and flexable so it will not crack with stress
