Managed to break off one of the lugs on the air box that the left side cover hangs on (the cover withe seat lock). Planning to attempt gluing it back on with guerilla glue but welcome any advice on better repair.

FACE one of the worst feelings when you know you broke something.
Some sort of super glue is probably the only option. I hope it works for you.

A product that I have had good success with is LockTite "Plastic Bonder". It is a 2 part epoxy that has worked well on this kind of material. Bought it at the hardware store. ...J.D.

A good epoxy should work--like above--Locktite is a good product.
