Quick fairing question

I won't go into the whole thing - it's a sad tale with a reasonably happy ending - short version is about a fool with a cast on his leg driving a cage thinking somehow it would be easy to feel the difference between the gas and the brake pedal. While parking his car this aforementioned discrimination failed. He ploughed into a van which, although in park, managed to move a good 15 feet along the curb. This would be bad enough excepting my immaculate '00 K12RS was parked about 12 feet in front of the van.

I won't go into the whole deal but it turns out that the damage is largely cosmetic aside from needing a new driver's peg and rear brake pedal. My question is that it appears that the little tab on the fairing for mounting the right turn signal is broken at the base of it. Not off completely but not rigid anymore. Any way to glue this kind of plastic? Does the tab really matter that much given the way the signal is anchored with the 3 pins?

Thanks - Slam

P.S. - Judging by the reaction of one of Toronto's finest this guy may drive again, but that will be in another lifetime.

They are a Canadian outfit and the guys over on the Triumph site have good things to say about their product.

Thanks Bruce. This looks like just what I need.

Turns out to be available right around the corner from my place at a hardware store. Looks like these guys are a bit of Canadian ingenuity AND they make house calls for those in dire need. There are some examples of fairing and other repairs on their site. www.plastex.ca
