Re: Help I cant line up my fairings

once you strip her you probably be able to realign better. Good luck with the repaint.

Re: Help I cant line up my fairings

Ive had both sides of all the fairings off before and put them back on but i cant get the tail to line up. Could it be where the bolts go into, could they be bent out of place or something?

Chances are that the subframe is bent. But nobody can tell you that without actually looking at it and taking lots of measurements.

Re: Help I cant line up my fairings

Would the local honda shop be able to do that? Or an auto body shop? Or if its easy I could do it myself if someone could tell me how

That's a hard one. If you have your frame looked at by a Computrac dealer they will charge you $1000.00 to straighten it.
If you took it to a dealer, chances are that the guy looking at your bike has as much chance of finding it as you do. And you would pay for that service or lack there of.
Try taking the tail off and just look at everything. Use your line of site. Then look at the tail section to see if it has any flaws in it. Do the same for the seat. You can also look for straight Sub frames on E-Bay (be careful) if you find something out of wack.
