Works needed for roadworthy DIY attempt

Hi folks,

As per another thread I posted, I was rather brutalised with the roadworthy RWC test recently for my 05 CB900f. And now the shock has died down, I am beginning to plan the work to rectify the problems.

Any assistance with this project for a long term rider but novice/all too easily irritated mechanic will be hugely appreciated.

Photos are below.

(Needed new rotor and rear pads. Dont have the confidence to change the rear rotor unless its easier than I assume, but the paddock stand I have doesnt fit! Unless I add bits on the end of the main axle bolts I believe with a damn drill, so will leave that be...Have got the pads and ordered this rotor>

Tried the pads last week, but couldnt get the pin out, need to seek more instruction!)

Issues
Front fender CRACK/ Breakage
Can I glue this back together? Or will it still not pass no matter the quality?
If not, would this do>>

(wrong colour though! Any other options?)

Heated Grips 'fouling' other cables/grips.
Plan is to disconnect the control box (from the battery I assume?) and remove then replace the grips? Will these fit with the funny bar end mirrors I have?

Danmoto exhaust cans (were too loud)
Have the option of getting the baffles from danmoto for approximately $55AU with postage.
Yet wonder if these might fit?>>>

Finally, the lack of a reflector on the rear plate/holder? Can I find a red reflective sticker and put on the black box bit sticking out about the plate? Or any other ideas!

Plastic welding is a thing, stronger than gluing. Very few here face Australias checks so I'm not sure you will find a good answer here.

They should fit any 7/8" bar, if they interfere than they are not within specs. Moving the bar end out should resolve any clearance issue, but be warned that dropping the bike on the right side would likely move the bar end mirror back into interference territory. I stick to rubber grips. If crap interferes, a razor quickly cures it. Through-hole grips are not an issue unless I cut the bars down and find myself trying to pack 10lbs of crap into an 8lb bag.

They might, but they might not.

Australia has their own set of laws, I'd find a local forum to ask. Here (TX, USA) we get away with a couple of 1" reflectors holding the plate on. $0.99/ea on the high end.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Ok, my turn.
Fibreglass and paint the front fender. Get a small fibreglass repair kit for a car, some body filler, spray paint and go for it.
Not sure about the grips.
Not sure about the baffles you have picked out. Personally I would get the Danmoto ones. You know they'll fit.
For the rear reflector why not fit a small mud flap to the bottom of the license plate. A small reflector could go on that.
