Hey all Any info on cracked fairing(L top). Was pointed out to me by dealer when purchased, but they were small 10mm cracks(stress?) by screws. They are now(after 300mi) 50mm long.

Drill a small hole at the end of the crack so it will stop spreading, and repair as you like. :)

In general, stop drilling cracks does not work. It has limited success only if you have a perfectly smooth bore in the hole.

Plastic welding would be a much better route.

Have a good one.

All you need is a variable temperature soldering iron and some ABS welding sticks, I found it best to to just work from the inside of the fairing. This will stop the crack from spreading any further, it doesn't look pretty but whose going to see it from the inside.
Glues never really worked for me, so I tried plastic welding with good results so far.
