She is still able to ride but I'm going to try and have a new fairing this winter so I can have her ready for riding season.
If it were mine, I would be tempted to gut it and see if I could realign at breaks and reinforce inside using pieces of ABS plastic and ABS or ABS/CPVC/PVC adhesive from Lowe's .



What's to loose now?

You have a very valid point and I plan to look into it my only worry is that when i got hit it broke the turn signal mount on the fairing so I would have to rig another mount

Yeah I know you mentioned it that's what I meant to say. Didn't mean any insult if I did.

ABS repair

If you are going to do any repair or rebuilding of mounting points on your ABS fairing, try one of these products.

I used it when I repaired my GL1800 fairing. One of the headlight brackets was broken off. These products are a God send.
