I had a couple cracks on my 2002 plastics. I bought a plastic welding kits from Harbor Freight and it worked great. The welds have held up for years now. I only did the repairs from the back side so the crack is still somewhat visible from the top side but it doesn't bother me. Epoxy didn't last for me so I bought the welding kit.
I got the welder that you hook up to an air compressor/120 outlet that's costed about $50. Since I wasn't sure which rod to use and I have spare plastics that are beat up I tried the 3 rods in the HF kit. I believe the rods were PVC, PP and ABS. After testing the abs rod worked best for me but my atv plastics are 2002 and 03. If you have spare plastics just test which rod works best. That's if you have a Harbor Freight near you.
