Default Terminology...

I'm having trouble finding via Google certain items for sale that I am trying to acquire and I feel that it's possibly due to me not being correct in my terminology when I search for them.. specifically right now I'm looking to acquire for the right price what I assume is called the front fairing. My bike needs all fairings but for now I'm just going for the mandatory requirements in order to pass inspection, and for now I need mirrors. I assume that they attach to the front fairing which is why I am searching for such-- if anyone could possibly correct my terminology which would lead to me actually being able to search and find what I'm looking for that would be awesome. Or if anyone has or know someone who has or wants to point me in the direction of somewhere I can get said parts for my 98 katana, thatd be double awesome

-- much thanks in advance!

Mirrors do not attach to the fairings. If you need mirrors, all you have to do is search for mirrors. eBay amongst other places likely has them

If you look on the front of your bike you will actually see the old mirror mount for the left side still bolted on the bike. It's broken off, but still attached. Not necessary to have fairings for mirrors to be mounted. Matching point on the other side with out the broken mirror part or bolts, but the mounting point is there.

1 mirror is all that is need for you to pass inspection. 1 mirror, no turn signals (remove them all, and you will pass. ) Fix the tail light. Make sure the tag light works, and you should be good.

That said, I have a few parts including some damaged main fairings in the garage. If your wanting, should consider dropping by.
