Anyone know where I can get one?

Or what the best way to repair a crack in one is?
I also need to buff out some deep scratches on the front fender and right side pannier I dropped it. Any ideas?

Hi,

I've be successful with plastic welding rod melted into the back side where the crack has formed. It's always best to use plastic of the same type (or from a junk piece of fairing etc).

As far as removing scratches from fender and panniers, you can really only remove lite scratches with a commercial product such as Scratch Doctor. Anything deep will require fill and of course repainting.

Others can chime in here also.

Thank you for the reply. I hadn’t though about plastic welding. I have one I used on my kayak years ago. I’ll give it a try.

Thanks again!

I had to repair the bottom belly fairing on my k12s right at one of its load bearing mounts. Amazingly ordinary superglue worked instantly! This was a few months ago and its holding fine!
