Sprint fairing blades

TL;DR - Where can I get some new fairing blades?

Came off the sprint yesterday, a gent undertook and pulled infront of me without indicating at a set of lights. I had filtered up to the front and was on his right hand side, intending to head straight on. Hit the side of his vehicle then went down and me and pillion came off. No real damage to us, my pillion cut her knee slightly so thats ok.

Now its time to look at repairing - I would claim insurance, but I don't want months of hassle, and with the other jobs that need doing on the bike I was going for a full respray anyway.

The panel that took the full fall (RH fairing) is very scratched up and will need sanding and repainting. But i lost the chrome blade thing from it - does anyone know where I can get one?

If not, a set of aftermarket carbon fibre ones or something would be quite cool.





Cheers,
Dan

As have a OEM left set here with me, and the invoice for them, so I can tell you
the "blades" are 18.42 each from the dealer
left part # T2301526
right part # T2301585
you`ll also need 2x each of retaining washers T3550139 (0.99 each)
and 2x o-rings T3600151 ((0.85 each) for each blade
all prices are inc VAT

breaking the blade was the motivation factor for having R&G chrash bungs fitted

Hi Dan do you mean the shiny chrome strip?
If so if is generally referred to as a "swoosh".
I have no idea why!!!

Good luck and sorry about your wee off.

Cheers
Dave

BikeBandit sells any Triumph part that is available from the dealer. The only difference is they use their own part number and take twice as long to deliver.

Dan, they are not that difficult to copy in billet aluminum. I have one on the right side of my bike. Just takes a bit of oomph to bend it and then a lot of filing.

Brushed aluminum would look very nice on the Sprint 1050's.

OnD - fell like making 2 more? At least I'll know they'll never crack!

Nope.

But I can give you a rough idea how I did it.
Start with some .0625 X1.0 aluminum bar stock. Probably will have to be T6 due to the dimension.
Bend it. I made a bending jig which I placed in a vise.

Trace the pattern, then saw about 0.025 proud of the line. Then mill the sides for a smooth finish.

Shape it with a file.

Mark the fairing reliefs and then mill them out. Then use the fairing to mark the mount hole locations, drill and tap them.

Use a fine file to remove marks and then progressively finish it to 1000 paper and then with crocus followed by metal polish.

And don't ask me why one of the pics is shown below and out of sequence? Just when I think I've got the hang of forum procedures, something like this happens to humble me.
