radiator shroud tab broken

I broke the tab on the left radiator shroud , ts anwhere it connects to the gas tank , while changing out sub frame bolts. To make matters worse , I lost the tab. Any ideas for a fix, other than a zip tie? BTW, its an 07 KLR.

Bummer. I did the same thing but fortunately still had the tab. If you can find the tab try using some Gorilla Glue, it worked for me.

Good luck

Make a little metal bracket, and drill a hole through the plastic. The bracket will be kind of a L shape that way it connects to both mounting places, and you never have to worry about it breaking again.
