Well mine has been a bit stiff to latch.
Reading on the web created all sorts of paranioa about it locking itself shut so I thought I better have a look.
Some time later I've removed the necessary panels and trim bits and ... it's fine. All working as it should, nicely greased (some of which I'm now wearing and for which I will get hell of She Who Must Be Obeyed later).
Putting it back together a screw decided to go exploring. One tab decided to part company with the panel and it's at this point I've locked the garage and gave up for the day.

Bloody internet...

Half a can of WD-40 should have taken care of it from the beginning... Sorry, I couldn't help it.

I just finished completely rebuilding my bike and with the latch nice and lubed it doesnt latch really easily. The gasket puts pressure on it so it takes some force to close. I found the best way to do it was set the seat down the give a nice firm push right over the latch. I can slam it but I hate slamming things

Plastics back on, superglued fairing tabs seem to be holding, all is well in my shed.
And the missing screw? Fooknose where that has gone. Probably found a worm hole in the space time continum, somewhere a little green man scratching his head and trying to figure out where it fits in his spaceship :-)

Awesome. If the super glue doesnt hold get some "Extra Special" (not a joke that's what it's called) black abs cement. It is incredible for repairing plastics on a bike.

Cyanoacrylate, or superglue as it's commonly called, is not suitable for wet, damp, or moist areas. It eventually loses it's surface bond - ask me how I know! A possible way round the problem may be to paint/seal over the repaired area that is exposed to the environment.

I used plumbers glue for use with plastic pipes. It chemically softens the plastic (don't use too much) and can be reinforced with scrap plastic from modern doors/windows/gutters.

Yeah the stuff I'm talking about is for plumbers. It's much better than the general purpose stuff you get at Lowe's.

Also, Legos are made of abs and make really convenient reinforcement.

Another issue with CA glue is its very inflexible once cured so it tenders to crack and separate.

Hey, I didn't know that! Just think of it - build yourself a whole new fairing with lego blocks glued together Smile

The thought crossed my mind to make something out of Lego and stick it on but I couldn't come up with anything cool
