I'm interested in knowing if others have had the same problem i've had, which is the rear right side just below the back light comes loose and wobbles. I recently noticed my '08 executive has the same problem as my old '03 had.

Anyone else have this problem and any ideas on how to fix it? I went out and put some krazy glue on it but it didn't stick at all for some reason.

I think you are talking about the lower frame cover that runs below the tail lights and above the rear fender.  It is not unusual for the tabs that lock it to the rear side frame panels to get broken off when the panel is removed. 

The push pin that attaches it to the side frame cover also has a habit of working loose and falling out.  Some folks have replaced that push pin with a speed nut and screw.  Others like me have just put a zip tie through the holes where the pin goes.  I have zip ties in mine on both sides.

The parts are ABS and cyanoacrylic glue (Crazy Glue) doesn't work on ABS. try 5 Minute Epoxy...

I haven't had much luck with repairs made with epoxy lasting.  Best way I have found to reattach broken tabs is to plastic weld them back on.  Second best is ABS plumbing pipe cement but that is getting hard to find.

Do what Craig says.  I had the wind rip off the back of mine.  Going across South Dakota at about 85mph.  Pete saw it sail off into the praire lands.

Funny you should mention this. The fellow who bought my totaled Burgman "Glued' it back together. Wonder how long its gonna last.

On my 05 I put different kind of plastic pins in it to hold up that back piece. They had ridges on them. They worked fine. My 06 has a zip tie on one side from the previous owner. Holds well to as you described Craig.

Have a look at this old post - http://maxi-scoots.com/scoot/index.php?topic=309.0 .  Maggie's link to the old SLSC site doesn't work, but the others are still good.

Plastex may work for repairing a busted tab.  I used it to repair cracks in the tupperware on my wife's Reflex (see below).  It's kind of pricey but worked pretty well for me.
