Hope this is the right place for this post, mods move if necessary.

Out riding today and noticed the left-hand side panel had gone all wibbly wobbly.
When I got home I took it of I found a little lug had broken off.



This is were it fits.



Small bracket on the side of the air filter



I hadn't done anything weird to break it, only got 200miles on it.
So can only assume it's weak spot.

Anyhoo, Super-glued it back into place, and added a couple of small bits of Alloy angle to give it some strength.





It may not be pretty, but should be stronger.
Couldn't be bothered to take it back under warranty.
As long as it don't break again, no one will ever see it.


FYI.
As I'm posting up pics.
If you wondered why the rear fender extension was so heavy,
This is what is inside.

When I took my fender off yesterday I say it dropped 8 pounds off the bike.

JB Weld works really great for fixing broken tabs on motorcycle plastic.

I broke the one on my grom's right cowling too ... just left it that way. Doesn't wobble at all. Getting that thing back on to the bike's a beeyotch!

Mine has the same broken off left fairing tab, but I can't find the broken bit. *shrug* seems just stable enough.

The rear fender is amazing, you can actually pick the bike up by it. Why?!

I weighed mine when I took it off. Pretty incredible.
Original rear fender / plate hanger assembly with light: 1.25kg

Also interesting:
Original non-TDM indicators x4 (some wiring was cut off to reuse): 0.61kg

It's probably for some safety issue, in case you get rear-ended
Guessing.....
In Europe anyway, there's a homolgation requirement for the fender to be the furthest back part of the motorcycle.

I would have to admit though, that I've had muddy water sprays up the back of my jacket and helmet while it's been raining here in the last few days. I could do with finding a suitable piece of black plastic to bodge up a winter time splash guard.

Vagabond tidy tail and luggage rack ... the rack intercepts that spray from your back. Tidy tail without the rack = folly. What we need is a better sub-fender that completely covers the rear wheel. I'd buy that.

Did your take it in for the warranty fuel pump, " they take the left side off to replace the fuel pump", the dealer mechanic broke mine, noticed the left plastics was wobbly and tab broken off when i got it back. Dealer replaced the part, I installed it myself no problems since. Dealer mechanics need to watch a few Youtube videos on Grom plastics removal.

Broke my clips last night, went to the hardware store and picked up these L brackets. Stronger than stock! Little super glue and a self tapping screw and it's better than new!
