Looks Cool! I have an idea to glue it together. Perhaps use a hole saw to make a hole from the inside of the fairing and apply the glue or quick steel from the inside. Maybe even use some small bolts from the inside to hold it in place instead of glue? Reseal the hole with quick steel, epoxy or fiberglass.

You could try pop rivets/blind rivets. You could then fill them with some bondo and paint them blend right in. Or, if you have a rivet gun and a bucking bar, you could show off some stainless rivets.

looks good, black sounds interesting, Id go for black . Id try to powder coat them myself with a cheap setup and a owen from the junkyard. heat resistant paint is often matt and a clear coat with normal paint would peel off because of the heat im guessing. but thats just me , I like shiny parts.

+20 horsepower and better aerodynamics

I meshed my pre right before I sold it, looked great. Would do it on my bike but **** sticks out through the holes in the fairings.

Yeah, I just painted them all black few days ago. I like it a lot so far. Today I installed Kawasaki windscreen on it which is also black. So far looks good. I'll put out some pics soon. Last week I got my Alsa Tropical Orange paint delivered. Right before I got into an accident. So now there is even better reason to paint my Kat
