HF site says 49.99 for the welder and 5.99 for some plastic rods in 3 flavors. not bad at all.  I wish I knew they were that cheap when I was fixing the plastic on the wheeler, I spent probably 20 bucks in epoxy and it only partly worked.

Anyone know what type plastic is used in the rods? Rolls of ABS for 3D printing are pretty cheap and LOTS of colors available.

Might be picking one of those up.  I have a stock tail piece that I will cut up and use. So glad I ran across this !
The ear on my upper fairing is broke clean off but I still have it.

How much was that thing?  I need to do some plastic welding on the Gsxr.

This particular plastic welder was 50$ at HF.    A few more bucks and you can get a bag of abs welding rods to go with it.  I have some Katana carcasses in my barn I'm going to practice on first.  I'll post up pics etc when I test it out.  I'm going to try and get to it tonight after work.

I think the trick on my YZF750 fairings will be to only weld one side of the plastic.  I don't want to mess up the body graphics on the outside and have to re-do them.   All the videos I've watched show welding both sides, sanding, filling, etc....     Which is what I hope to avoid.  I just want to weld up one side, prevent further cracking and keep the oem graphics as intact as possible.

You use the same kind of rod as the plastic you are welding, polypropylene, abs, etc...    Post up a source of the abs rolls if you can.

How far away are they from the crack?  That heat might melt em pretty quick.  Mine is getting a color change so I will be doing both sides and sand etc etc..

Look back a page or two.  I posted pics of the inside and outside of the left fairing, showing the worst crack.   It goes right through the graphics.

This place is good for samples: https://quantum3dprinting.com/shop/3d-printer-abs-filament-samples-10-meter-increments/

Once you figure out what you want, I usually hit eBay or Amazon for the whole rolls. Usually runs about $20-$25 for a 1kg roll.
