I broke the rear plastic on my 05 650. Anybody found a (GOOD)fix for it besides pop rivets? Thanks for any advice.

plastic welders are not much more than a high tech soldering iron with different tips for it and an adjustable temprature knob. They aren't cheap either! I am going to try mine out this weekend on an old 3 wheeler I bought to fix up. I have used one before but it wasn't as nice as the one I got. I'll try to post some pics of the before and after of what I get done this weekend.

I don't know if this will help but on the hood of my pantera there were many cracks and pieces of fiberglass broken right off. Went to wal mart got some bondo resin and some fiberglss sheets, pretty much just cloth. put down some resin, a sheet of cloth, some more resin and let it dry. you can do this a few times if you want it extremly strong. After that just sand it, paint and there you go, better than new. Worked wonders on my pantera. Going to have to do it to my crappy little e-ton as both front fenders are held on by duct tape right now. this stuff will work on almost any material and is pretty cheap and somewhat easy, it has to be warm were your working though. Here's a picture of what it looked like before paint.

Hope this helps
