Question What is the strongest super glue? Need advice

Hey guys my brother somehow cracked the side panel on a brand new plastic for my dirtbike. Short of spending $50 on new one, is there any strong super glue out there that could work? I mean like once it's glued, it's never coming off. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

PS. The crack is where the side panel and seat come together and bolt down. An odd spot I know...

what kind of plastic ? ABS maybe ?

I use the hobby store grade superglue...
Works well for many things...
but it don't hold well or for long on many plastics.

A more permanent fix/solution would be to plastic weld that.
You can pay someone whom fixes/paints plastics on motorcycles.
or go down to Harbor Freight and buy yer own plastic welder.

^ tho' I have no idea if any of the available HF junk works

I had a cbr900 I laid down... more then once
Most of the plastic required some form of mend before re-painting.
After plastic welding things back together, I never had another
issue with those repairs. (and the exterior looked as good as new)

slow curing epoxy used in plastic models. the slower the cure, the stronger the bond, generally. It usually comes in two tubes and has to be mixed together.

Plastic welder, its super easy. I fixed a pair of kayaks with huge gouges out of the bottom and they are seaworthy now after months of use.

You'd be fine with the plastic version of JB Weld. I used it to fill a small hole in a gas tank (not a through hole). So far, all's well.

Yea Ian, it's on the backside of the side panel where the seat bolt goes to. The backside part of the hole on the panel just busted off in a perfect circle washer sized piece. Now the seat bolt is too small and doesn't tighten the side panel down. Make sense? Lol

JB or nearly any type of 2 part epoxy should be fine. I've have good success with Gorilla Glue lately on small stuff.

If it's in a spot where you wont see it (sounds like it) then you need to fist scuff it all up with 60 grit for good adhesion, then use some slow cure two part epoxy and if you can, add in a piece of metal mesh for some real strength.

That pic sort of shows what I mean..

Perfect sense.

Just goop some of the plastic epoxy stuff around it. The piece will weld right back on.
