Biker Bling Fairing Bots - Anyone Used Them?

Hi I have bought these bolts and although each area of the bike is separated into individual bags, there is no diagram so for some areas I am unsure where all the bolts are that need replacing. Some areas are easy - such as the mirrors and windscreen, but in other areas I seem to have more bolts than I need which isn't right.

Has anybody used these before?

Lol. I have tried to compare to other diagrams, but the other kits come with a lot more fixtures and so its hard to compare. I just didn't want to miss anything so a diagram would have been nice. Unfortunately the company do not have a diagram. Looks like I am doing it the hard way !

Hi all. Sorry just another question about using stainless steel bolts. I've been told by my father in law that they can fuse with certain materials and are then impossible to remove. Am I likely to have that using these with original Honda wingnuts? The new fairing bolts do not come with corresponding wingnuts.

Advice greatly appreciated.

Wingnuts?
Some of those bolts need to be torqued properly. I have no idea which of the important ones you are replacing, but you might want to check the manual for torque specs.
I would worry more about stripping threads with stainless bolts into aluminum parts - than seizure, don't over-tighten. Use medium (blue) loctite to keep them snug and protect from vibrating loose. Areas that don't need loctite can use a dab of anti-sieze if you're concerned about that.

If you're talking about the windscreen, those should be well-nuts. You can get them at auto parts stores, or a place like Cycle Gear.

I always use a little bit of copper slip, especially with the lower fairing bolts which screw into the alloy lugs on the engine itself and the mild steel brackets.

Thanks all. Found out there was an anti-seize compound with the kit

That makes sense...
There are metals in that stuff, try not to get it on your skin. Not good to get absorbed by the body.

Post up a couple pics when you're done.

Dissimilar metal or galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical corrosion and can be real problem, particularly if you live by the coast and have moist, salt air exposure, it makes an excellent electrolyte (There's your science lesson for the day). Your father in law sounds like and aircraft guy. It takes a toll on aircraft that live or operate in coastal areas. If your worried about it the anti-seize will work, it's just a little messy. We use it on our captive fasteners on certain panels, by the time you get them off your fingers are black and so is the aircraft. Shouldn't be a big deal though since your not removing them daily!

Re: Biker Bling Fairing Bots - Anyone Used Them?

Pretty much ALL of my OEM 8mm and 6mm fasteners are now Stainless Allen heads. I'm just OCD and like to have them polished. On certain ones I put some anti-seize on them, but unless you're riding in salt water or never taking them out they'll be fine.

But I'm odd, so I can't tell you to do what I do

Sorry for the sideways pics, nature of the beast.

Re: Biker Bling Fairing Bots - Anyone Used Them?

Thanks for all the info! Pics attached as requested. It wasn't a complete kit, just fairing, but I've changed what I can. I've used anti-seize on everything just in case. Bonus picture of the exhaust if anyone can tell me how I get that back on? Noticed it as I took the pictures.

Re: Biker Bling Fairing Bots - Anyone Used Them?

Just use pop rivets for the exhaust band

why is the panel gap so wide?, that should close right up when fitted. Are they Chinese fairings?

Do you just pop them in the rivets? And no they are original fairings. No idea why its done that... might need a little re-jigging.

Yes, just stainless steel pop rivets will hold the band on, you'll need a rivet gun. not expensive and a useful tool to own, they do come in handy now and again.
