It's been a few weeks so probably not. If it were me I would do the eBay thing. There are a few blue s/h panels for sale on there plus you can get a pair of new aftermarket ones for about £25. These will probably not match your bike, although blue bikes seem to suffer less from sunburn than red, also you would need to swap the emblems over. There seem to be more blue than red at the moment too, including e/s battery covers (if a perfect red one of these comes up I would probably buy it!)

You could also repair your existing one, get a rattle can mixed up and respray it. The crack looks as though it has been caused by over tightening of the screw. It's quite important to get the adjuster nut right to prevent this, also make sure the screw has not been bent which doesn't help.

Red bikes seem to be the worst to match up. I have 2, spare genuine plastics, an almost complete set of aftermarket plastics and nothing matches. :lol:

Thanks for the reply. To be honest I can probably live with it, i Keep looking on eBay but they are few and far between.
Something may come up .....
