the title says it all really, basically i crashed today the bike is mechanically sound but fairing's are fucked (they weren't exactly great before the crash either) so i want t swap them for these it will be a project for the project section i guess i just want to know what im getting my self in too ? what tools will i need anythig else i have to buy? do i need any special skill's or can i just jump right in (like i did with my engine XD)

oh and before anypone moans at me about the crash i never said i was a good driver, and it was in the wet and over a man hold cover (those things are like fucking ice B| )

are you after advice on re-spraying and repair or where you can find a new set of panels? :confused:

always try to avoid lines/arrow/markings on the road and manhole covers with a bike mate, thats one of the first thing you learn wen taking (motorcycle) lessons.

and also be carefull in the area of feulstations, especaily corners and roundabouts fuel can be spilled on the road from overfilled fueltanks of cars.

Other than that i dont really understand your question and what you want to do with the fairings, they just screw on and off thats all.

Note: i know that their not just going to fit straing out the bos but i am prepared to cut and weld them to make it look nice and fit :)

i think the af1 125 ones should be Ok if your handy with cutting metal, welding and mading brackets ect but the other two will be too long lenght ways for sure....

wud it not be better to fibre glass and respray your current fairings?

Feel sorry for you man , I needed a LH center fairing as half was missing. Someone was selling a RH panel so I messaged him if he had a left one, he did but it needed respraying and the mount fibreglassed on ! Got it for free ! Saved me 258.

the new types do look pretty good naked ;) ;) heres how you can solve the dirty engine n that

clean the engine with de greaser

spray the engine covers with high temp paint

buy a streetfighter fairing/headlight combo

or if you really dont like streetfighters then have you got the broken peice?

get some fibre glass and spray paint, get a strip of aliuminum and screw it together on the back peice so its hidden, fibreglass other side and paint and boom it done

im sure if you look hard enough you will find a fairing that will fit but its a case of looking at MILLIONS of bikes ect
