    closing gaps in the fairing

    I can not close this gap in the third light, both tabs on the back are broken off. Any sugestions?

    Based ont he damage to the fairings and windscreen on that side I'm guessing you took a small slide. Check the lockin locations on the bike and see if any of them are twisted or bent. One or more of those probably got thrown out of whack in the slide and will need to be adjusted.

    Use a BFH, they can usually make anything fit where it doesnt want to go...


    for those wondering what a BFH is...
    Its a Big F'n Hammer

    =hardlydangerous;1498684]Your left side fairing is not on properly It does not line up properly with the windscreen on that side either.
    Even without the tabs there should not be that large of a gap
    something is off, bent or the fairings installed wrong.
    The 3rd light piece does not hold them together or pull them together but just easily slips into place.[/quote]

    you could go cheap and get some double sided tape (the foam stuff) and line the edge with it, then lay the overlapping fairing on it and stick it together
