You can get em from www.RonAyers.com. Suzuki sells em for like $2.00ea : what a farking ripoff!!! You might also try your local automotive parts store. Orrrrrrrrrrrr, do what I did. I went to Home Depot and got some. Seems like they were maybe $1.50 for a package of two?

BTW, I think they may have been correct. It does appear that BLACK is indeed the FASTEST color. R.O.R...R.I.P.M

I had the Damnedest time with the push pin thingies ... They were so stuborn I about put a dang hole through my fingers ... and caught them in the pinch point too . Then I used a flat head screw driver to fit in the faring, to push on the top of the pin out and it worked great. They fell right out :P ... Not as easy as your way though ...
Great write up Sas .

There were many a time on my Pre 98 when she was running like crap, that after working on it, taking it out and finding it still running equally as bad, that I wished I knew where to get explosive bolts so I could ride down the street pissed off and press a button and the kat would shed its skins before I stopped at the garage door.

Wishful thinking!! and a motor rebuild later and now she can keep her allens... for now Muhahaha!! Wish there was a fumoto valve type of release for fairings. Not to mention them silly little spacers I keep kicking around the garage now and then. <g>
I've given up on trying to keep them on the fairings or the screws
If its not broke, Hit it with a bigger hammer and blame it on cheap imports

RIP Dad 3/15/08 Love and miss ya already
