Tank Fairing Cracked

It was the lower part of the tank fairing. If I did not wash my bike today, I dont even notice it. I know, probably it was my fault. But I never crashed or hit anything. Maybe it was some bumpy road. I think I probably will paste a layer of epoxy first.

my tank faring is also cracked. it just came that way from the factory, but I only noticed it later on. it is probably not a big deal, but still annoying. also 2 bolts were missing. welcome to India.

as you love riding, you need to love you bike

If it is still under warranty take it back to the dealer. It probably has been over tightened in a service or during assembly.

The obvious solution is to stop washing the bike, works for me.

Guess who is the last idiot tighten those bolts? Me Maybe the plastics are too flimsy maybe it was me tighten them too hard. But this part is facing the ground, so wont be a problem to me. I have already paste some expoxy, it seems it was solid enough.

what kind of epoxy did you use? i also have a crack on the fearing. i don't think dealer will honour warranty in this case, as they could say that the bike was dropped.

Just some regular LOCTIE epoxy you usually got from the hardware store. I let it dry for 2 days, it seems it is pretty solid.
