    Glass Repair to deck on an 09 FZR

    I need to do some repair to the deck on an 09 FZR and the resin that Yamaha used is gray. Is this part of the nano cell technology and will normal mat and resin stick to it? The damaged area is around the steering so this repair is structural and must be strong.

    Needs to be an epoxy resin (so no, normal resin does not work), not sure if the glass itself is different. When i had repairs done to mine, it took the guy a while. He said its tricky to deal with, required really good prep work. His work has help up fine for me. If you dont know...or cant find out, i wouldnt venture to far into it.

    Agree with above, must be epoxy resin and may require some skill to repair. Pretty much anything else is not going to work.

    Could you post a picture of the damage? For minor stuff I've seen body shops repair with automotive body filler on the FZ platform. Thats what they did on my ski.

    use thicker mat or carbon fiber when working with structure points.
    and epoxy resin is a must!
    if it say's polyester it will not work.

    Thanks for the replies. I will get some pics but it is major damage. The entire steering was ripped out of the ski ! I will get some epoxy resin and I think I have some carbon fiber so I will use that for extra strength. It is also an area that is difficult to get to the back for building it up so it will take some time to do it right but that's ok. Any other suggestions would also be greatly appreciated.

    Carbon fiber is stiffer. It is not "stronger" per se.
