BMW City Case Repair

I am new to this board and new to BMW touring. For those of you who are wondering, I used to ride an R65, then a Honda Shadow. I just purchased my first touring bike this last weekend. It is a 99 R1100RTP.

 

While trying to figure out how to get into the right side case (bmw system city cases) I managed to pull half of it open without unlatching it. The sound it made was good evidence that I had done some damage. Once I found the latch release, I opened the case to find that I had broken one of the latches on the lid side clean off.

 

Does anyone no of a way that I could repair this plastic, do I need a new case, or can I just buy the lid. Im afraid my explorative yank on the lid just cost me another $250.

 

I have been watching this community for awhile, I am very glad to join. I have already benefeited greatly from using the faq section.

 

Somebody please help me, thanks.

Depending on what you broke you can probably get by with a new lid from Bob's BMW or check the classifieds section here to see if anyone has got a set of lids you can buy from them.

I did a repair job using ABS black pipe glue... be carefull and it is like new. Real good weld. The black glue matches the black case lid.
