The ABS fairing on my EX250 cracked quite nicely where it needed to, so that's no cure.

Maybe its not ABS,, Its the rubber maid stuff like the Gen I KLRs are made of.
It just bends and does not break,,, There was a china place that made some for the CBR 600 Honda, I helped install it, You could bend the stuff like crazy and it did not break It did melt when the bike caught fire,, LOL. Crazy stunter,

I would be standing in line. Suzi had better come out with this X-strom fast, because the new KTM is looking mighty tempting and the Tiger 800XC is already on my short list. Either way, I will be upgrading soon.
