Fiberglass pieces with ABS glue. You can find it at Autozone and I am sure more places carry it.

Buy a piece of black ABS pipe, and some ABS cement. Use a rasp to file the ABS pipe into shavings, and when you have a good pile of them, mix them with the ABS cement until you have a thick paste. Slop the paste anywhere on the fairing you want to fix/reinforce. It will cure into a solid piece of ABS plastic, completely bonded with the original fairing.

Awesome advice. Abs glue with a matching plastic filler... should work!

Another good cement is Loctite's epoxy for plastic. Follow the directions and it wiil fix any plastic. I used micro balloons to thicken it.Micoballons are avail. from model airplane suppliers. jimsjinx

3M makes a flexable repair kit. It's a 2 part epoxy. I glued apiece of metal into my GL1200 fairing for support. Most automotive parts stores can get it. Also most auto paint stores will have it.
