well back in december, i went on a toy run... and on the way home i stopped at the mall to get my new sunglasses...

while pulling through the parking lot, someone pulled out in front of me... my tires were cold and i tucked the front... :(

so i am considering options for replacing the busted front fairing...

option 1: use abs plastic repair material to rebuild the missing section

option 2: buy used upper fairing and repaint it to match (very hard to find)

option 3: buy new yellow upper fairing (expensive)

option 4: get t595 headlight and fairing stay, and use airtech race fairings

I am leaning towards option 4... because i really like the look of the t595...

and the whole fairing set is only marginally more expensive than the upper for the sprint rs...

what are your opinions on these options...

thanks,
Chris

Watch Ebay and Craigslist. Ive found bit's for my bike at great prices. Cheap way to go.

Dont feel bad, I dropped mine right aft i bought it in 2002 and it had just under 1000miles on it. Shoulda known better but...there are two types of riders. One's that have dropped their bike, and one's that Will drop their bike.

i have to find a headlight and fairing stay first...

but i plan to do the conversion before my new baby is born in june :)

for now... i am going to try to fix my stock fairings cause i love the look...

i found an orange front fairing, but the price is too high because i would need to paint it and add the decals...

later,
chris

I have a pair of Lucifer Orange fairings that are brand new complete with decals
Option #5 - buy these & paint nose & tail fairings! :p
These will be less than half price of new. Contact me if interested.
wouldn't help... i need the part around the headlight...

sides and tail are just scratched....

later,
Chris
