ABS cement is no longer readily available at Home Depot, Lowe's, Ace etc. here in East Tennessee. ABS plumbing doesn't meet code here, I think. But, good ole' Amazon is shipping a can to my door today. I'll be using it to repair a tab on my '78 GL1000. The repairs can be reinforced with fiberglass cloth if needed. I used it with wrecked GL1800 plastic to build a entire new under-cowl piece for the '79 CB750F that I rescued over the winter.

Too much pulling them off when connecting the straps to hold the bike in the trailer.

Plastex. From Amazon or Eastern. Eastern gives you a range of colors. I was able to repair the trunk lid hinge mounts. and with a little added steel wire, I was able to make it I was even able to make it stronger than designed which could possibly help you. Make your mold from the front side and strengthen the backside.

And I do not recommend any petroleum based lubricant on rubber. I use silicone lubricant. Small tube goes a long ways. Oil based causes the rubber to swell as most rubber grommets are made from oil.

As evidenced when an ounce or less of oil in brake fluid will make all rubber parts in the brake system swell, causing permanent damage. Same as other rubber components. You can see this in the rubber cell phone covers from Otterbox. Over time the oils from your hands cause the cover to swell.

AND before any one shoots me down. Rubber engine seals are not rubber but a viton or silicone rubber.

Once upon a time I too thought the petroleum damage to rubber was permeant. You can actually resuscitate the rubber by boiling it. Apparently this causes the rubber to release the contaminants. I found that hack on youtube and have used it a couple times with 100% success.

Take a look at this product. Its a cyanoacrylate compound that works well for bonding and rebuilding ABS, PVC among other plastics. www.plast-aid.com.
I've found that silicone spray or grease works well on grommets.

I saw a utube video, I believe by cruzman, where he used a plastic repair kit. He said it seemed to work pretty well. You might look for that utube and see if it is something you might want to try.

Great, keep us posted. Iím sure many broken tabs will be in need of repair at some point in the future.
