  • filling a hole in fairings

    The previous owner of my bike decided it would be a fantastic idea to try and hold the ducktail of my bike together by drilling holes into it. The result is that i have holes (look like drilled holes) on both sides of the tail, probably about 2-3mm in diameter. Anyone got any good methods to get rid of said holes?

    In complete darkness we are all the same. It is only our knowledge and wisdom that seperate us. Dont let your eyes deceive you.

        Yes - you can get a kit containing abs powder and solvent (plus applicators etc) for about $20 from most bike shops, can't remember what it's called but it might be "kwikfix" or something like that.

        Build up the edge a bit, let it dry, build it up etc until you've filled the hole - will take about 10 minutes. Then sand and paint.

        Piece of piss.

            like q bond? I have some of that, just wasnt too sure if i could use that much on it. Building up slowly seems like a good idea, thanks

                How big are the holes? Fibreglass tape (the shit they use for plastering) on the inside of the fairing will provide a bass for some sort off epoxy resin (q-bond or whateva) to stick to.
