Re: Question on upper fairing/mirror stay

hard to say without seeing it..if its only bent, not cracked and feels solid it should be fine...just dont go Rossi on it.

Re: Question on upper fairing/mirror stay

It is bent to the point that it will not mount back on without pulling the plastic out of wack and in the process of straighting it i broke the part that the mirror mounts too so i was trying to find out if i can just leave it off or does it have to be on there cause i dont mirrors anyways thanks

Re: Question on upper fairing/mirror stay

I think i might have said that wrong all im asking about is the metal brace that runs from the tank to both sides of the fairing where the mirrors mount the plastic fairing is fine just bent that brace or whatever it is i read it is called the mirror stay or something like that

Re: Question on upper fairing/mirror stay

I would think that the upper fairing would be fine..i haven't tried it though but i would do it...take it for a spin and see how much it flexes at different speeds..i would imagine that under 50mph you would be fine and around 60mph it would be most probably ok but a litlte risky... OEM's a quite flexible but if it was aftermarket of dubious quality i would stay below 50. If u left it in place it would give support to at least one side... i assume just one side is kaput.. watch out for dem trucks though..just let go of the handle bars and grab the ears of the upper fairing

Re: Question on upper fairing/mirror stay

Leave it on so the other side is supporting the fairing and then just dont go over 60-70 mph until its replaced.

Re: Question on upper fairing/mirror stay

You can always give it a bit of heat to help put it back into shape.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.
