  • Fairing doesnt fit

    I had a fall back in dec, my new fairin has arrived but it doesnt quite fit. The garage has said that the fairing bars have bent a little ( its only out but 5-10mm ) now the fairing is on, but whats the best way about sortin it out so it lines up correct? Can anyone help?

    Cheers

    You mean the "birdcage" aka fairing stay is bent ? I'd try to bend it back CAREFULLY . Failing that , a new/used fairing stay .

      Bend it back carefully is right. A pipe bender, or alternatively a flat board, C-clamps and the occassion swack from a weighted mallot may help, depending on what the shape should be. Depending on how much it has weakened, you may want to replace it or fill it with epoxy to restrengthen it. Afterwards, you will want to repaint the frame members to keep them from rusting. I like this stuff:
      POR-15 HardNose Paints.

      If the rebend approach isn't feasible, PM SpecialK, scour eBay and contact a salvage yard (in that order).

      Good Luck!

        Cheers for the help. I've tried a rebend which is ok for the time being till i can get another cage sorted.
