Afternoon bradman

Those can be a REAL PAIN to get to come loose. The pounding/shaking/even hanging from a tree limb & jumping will sometimes work but not always.

If you have a BMW motorcycle dealer near you then a trip to the dealer might be worth while. Back in the 11500RT days they used to get those on a regular basis.

The BMW tec is usually pretty skilled at getting those stuck seats to come loose (my dealer never even charged the customer).

Dirtrider: Your point is well taken and I would take it to my dealer at this point if I could, but unfortunately the damage is now done.

I pulled a little too hard on the seat and ripped a hole in the fender where the key assembly is attached to the plastic. I now have a huge hole. I'll be replacing the fender now. Maybe I'll try some JB Weld until the fender comes in.

Evening bradman

Whoops!

I doubt JB (alone) will hold that part back in place.

But you can probably use a piece of aluminum backer that extends out onto the remaining inner fender under that piece with some JB weld to bond it.

Also use a few pop rivets around the perimeter & through that broken piece to retain attachment.

JB is good in peal retention but pi$$ poor for edge bonding.

The fender might be ABS plastic similar to some of the body panels. Not sure? If so, ABS cement would probably work to chemically weld that thing back together, as a temporary solution until the new fender comes in. It'll look like a bulls a$$ though.

Pop rivets in the break with fender washers on both sides MIGHT hold until the new/used fender arrives.

Edit. Just noticed the two pieces.
Above won't work on two large pieces. Alu straps 1" x 1/8" x (however long, 2" overlap onto "good" fender each end) on the bottom side pop riveted with fender washers on the top side should hold it.

How much is a fender?

You could absolutely stitch that back together with a sheet of aluminum, some rivets, washers and a bit of adhesive. I bet for less than $25.

I doubt anyone would ever see it either.

MaxBMW has the piece for $141.00, but I've found it for as low as $39.00 on Ebay. I was waiting to make sure that it was the right part from the seller. When he confirms it, I'll buy it from him. Can't beat that.

The aluminum is a really good idea, though. Thank you.

If your sources fail to provide the inner fender you need, let me know. I should have one from a 1995 or 1996 RS kicking around in the spares box.
