I read on a forum months ago someone had repaired their cracked fenders by using "plastic welding" and the fenders are good as new. Does anyone know if there's a kit you can buy to weld the plastic back together?

I bought a welder I found online. I welded a couple cracks only to rebreak them worse each time I went riding. I don't worry about breaking plastic or denting rims, bending bumpers anymore I can't keep up with it so I'll just ride till iteed to be replaced.

As a follow up, I bought the plastic welder from Rocky Mountain ATV instead of Harbor Freight b/c you don't need an air compressor. My review on the welder is the cracks look better welded that the fender flopping around. However, you can easily tell it's a repair job as you can't make it perfect. On the smooth part of the fender it looks real good, but the textured part of the fender doesn't look to clean. The welder is very easy to use and the "natural" color plastic rods you melt really dry close to clear/color of your machine. We'll see how it holds up.

I wanted to provide a follow up on the Plastic Welder I bought from Rocky Mountain ATV since I've been on a few rides since I welded the plastic fenders together. To my surprise, the fenders are still welded together and on yesterday's ride with tight trails and rubbing against trees I thought they'd break since the trails were similar to the onse that crakced them originally. But they never did. Very satisfied for the $30 I spent.
