Protection guards for side cases

Hi all
So, I ordered the 2 piece protection guards for the side cases for my 2012 K1600GT. This was of course after I dropped it in a parking lot. Anyways, I got them today, they come with double sided sticky tape. Which doesn’t work at all. So I guess I’ll glue them on? Any suggestions? Plastics cement? They attach to the black plastic parts below the painted parts. Of course, my tip over scratched up the painted part! But the protection pieces mount below the painted surface, but need some kind of glue that will work on the black plastic part. Suggestions?

I would use Automotive-grade double-sided tape it won't come off once you use it unless you wish to remove it your self.

Past bikes, 2013 Victory Cross Roads, 2016 R1200RT then 2017 K1600GTL 2018 then a 2019 Indian Road Master before buying another 2019 R1250RT Shift Cam in Oct. 2019 with Top Box / Fog Lights.

Your other option might be to go to a automotive paint shop and purchase some trim adhesive. A lot of automotive trim is just glued on.

Out of curiosity, could you link to the guards you purchased. I would be curious about those

thanks for the suggestions. I was thinking of using polyurethane glue, but that tends to be messy. Not sure how to link the item I bought, but they are the plastic guards. There are 2 of them for each side case, and attach to the black plastic part, not the painted part. The double sided tape that comes with them is useless.

3m is the good stuff used on cars. This should work.

I removed the tape that came on the units and applied 3m automotive tape all the way around perimeter. No problems since install. 3m tape i used was thicker than what was on pieces, as received..
