Yamakaze - that is your right shroud that is broken right? Too bad it wasnt your left. I have a left OEM shroud sitting right here next to my computer that is in perfectly good shape. The right one is cracked in the identical same place as yours.

I've gone so far as to actually drill 3 holes around the perimeter of the washer and rivet (use rivet washers on the back side) the plastic and washer together. Surprisingly tough. A good tough piece of plastic also works (like a 'free' semi mudflap found along roads everywhere).
Zip-ties work sorta, but act like a "hinge" and allow flop. I used the plastic piece of mudflap and a hot melt glue gun to fix my kid's broke-in-half rear fender from underneath. Worked so good for so long that I did it to the new fender to reinforce it.

Go to WalMart and get a fiberglass repair kit. Trust me, the best plastic fix you will ever find.

What kind of digital camera do you have Yama?
I've just been using the digital camera that is part of my camcorder. It works ok, but I like the clarity of your pics.

How about coming up to Seattle and you can
safety wire my roadracing bike?
