Replacing Lower Saddle Bag Cover

Post by tim.mckee »



HELP. My left lower saddle bag cover (the one on the bottom of the saddle bag with the chrome trim) on a 1999 GL-1500 has cracked. I'm trying to epoxy it now but I know that is only temporary. I'd like to replace it (candy apple red). Any suggestions on where I can find a replacement?
I'm on Google so I may not see your response since Google doesn't like Golwdingdocs. If you like to copy me on e-mail that's fine, tim.mckee@yahoo.com.
Many thanks y'all,

Here is a new one.

A used one.

If you need the chrome trim, this fellow might sell you just the piece you need.

Epoxy will not fix ABS, it will crack and break free, because ABS is soft and flexible, and cured epoxy is hard and stiff.

The best way to fix a crack in bodywork (I have done this MANY times) is to sand away the paint (if any) on the back side of the crack, cut some ABS sheet to fit over the crack, heat and form the ABS so that it will fit properly to the cracked area, apply copious amounts of ABS glue over the crack, and clamp the ABS sheet in place. The repaired section is usually stronger than the original piece.

Agree with Wing Admin, do not use epoxy.

Here is a kit that I am going to get to fix a crack on my Duel Sport.
