1993 CBR900RR Upper fairing reinforcing

I recently purchased a brand new OEM upper fairing for my 1993 CBR900RR. Are there any places where cracks develop from vibration? I already had to strengthen the two tail pieces where cracks were starting. I will post pics tomorrow of the fairing.

Try loosening all bolts and screws. Give everything a gentle push around. Then retighten. Fairings should line up without much trouble. If you need to start bending to get in place then something must give and crack.

Re: 1993 CBR900RR Upper fairing reinforcing

I guess I found an answer to my question. The brand new fairing had a crack in it! Oh well, time to repair.

Wow! You did a helluva good job fixing it

But came out of the box from Honda with the crack in it?

Re: 1993 CBR900RR Upper fairing reinforcing

Correct. New with stress cracks. I would have exchanged it but there is no guarantee that replacement wouldn't have the same crack and I didn't feel like waiting two weeks.

That sucks. Usually Honda stuff is pretty good with that, but it is 22 years old.

I agree. I would also be open to repairing plastic for anyone on this forum.

Re: 1993 CBR900RR Upper fairing reinforcing

There are other tricks I will share in the future. Next time I will go into more detail with the repair. I was in a bit of a hurry this time.
