Stock Undertray Cracked

Was riding with a group today, leading the way, and the rider behind me told me my trunk was falling down. I checked it out and it was about an inch low. Once I got back home I looked under the seat and found the stock undertray was cracking! Did a halfway fix for now with zip ties, which I hate to do, will have to look for a more permanent fix later. Also noticed the flexing cracked the fender eleiminator kit

Never seen one crack there before. You can easily plastic weld that back together.

I agree, surely plastic weld can fix it. The cause of crack could be due to vibration.

My R6 did that to me a few years ago. A couple heavy duty zipties did the trick!

Not supported enough, and then flex and vibrations.
Repair, add some structural additions (mold in some additional material) and then add some more support

Wake up call. Have you considered skipping the second pizza and six pack?

Dang both you need to eat a sammich. Kidding. I hate hearing that line. 6'1" at 155 here and I hear that crap all the time. Yet a pizza and a 6 pack does sound good right now and it's only 8:35 am here haha.

I repair automobile bumpers that are cracked quite often. 3M makes a epoxy designed for plastics called Automix that works wonders. If applied correctly the plastic repair is bullet proof. The catch is its expensive (about 40 bucks a tube although one tube gets me about 5 to 8 repairs) and I believe if it were me I would just source one on ebay for 60 bucks or so (I recently checked since I really want to bob my fender and keep my original unmodded).

Thank you for the reply!

I think i'll eventually try to find a stock undertray, then cut it myself. I never liked how the previous owner cut this tray, it put a lot of weight on the mounting tabs, and they cut off where it connects to the taillight...

This caused the taillight to bounce, so i removed the rubber mounts for the taillight.... One bad mod lead to another...
