Fairing Mods/ new color scheme....

thoughts??

I decided to cut out the fairings a bit just like the CC version has.....
So I had an extra set of plastics from a EVO 3 red/silver and thought I'd give it a try to see what would happen. The front nose, fairings and tail unit have paint chipping off of them (looks like lack of grip from paint to plastic). So I use the old trusty hack saw blade w/ tape wrapped around one end Yeah.... you know how us red-neck's do it!!! For some reason the holes don't look too bad after a few shots of tequilla (Don Julio *real*) they definately look like they'd vent more heat out, and atleast it wasn't my stock fairings.

so.... what do you think?? colors?? holes?? cuts?? any input will be taken seriously, except Lewis



*** some files/pics were too large, not sure how to make them fit***

haven't had the chance.... my speedo is in route to England for a re-face(hopefully on its way back).

It looks like it'll vent way more than the stock fairings.... but am on wait..... another thing is : I haven't heard back from my friend that is doing the speedo.... hope he's ok (and my speedo too)

if it doesn't help with heat, it might speed up tech check at the track (nice view of oil filter)

That doesn't look too bad at all. Am interested to know if it does meaningfully help the cooling.

Great idea and nice work. I would clean up the rear section of the cutout and get rid of that sharp edge that protrudes into the opening. It'd give it a cleaner line and the air is still going to come out of there. No question but what it'll help.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

I spent about 25 minutes on it...... yeah it's rough a bit..... I'll work on the edges when it's time to paint..... I was thinking of painting the fairings black and leaving the top silver.... I have an extra nose and 1+1 tail unit still (red w/ paint chips) not sure what I'll do with those yet.... and the bottom fairing is all busted up... I may get a plastic welder and see what happens

Personally I really like the blue. Goes with the rest of the bike. Black is gonna' look kinda' dead but then it's not my bike.

Hmmmm...... it looks way better that the others i've seen
I don't know if it's because of the different bottom fairing color or not but it's very nice.
Great work

How have you done it?
