Fairing Spacer Kit

Does anybody know where to get a fairing spacer kit for a 2007 F4 1000 R? I was at the dealership today and one of the service guys mentioned putting 1cm to 2cm spacers to help the hot air get out. I gather, I would need longer pins when adding spacers, so I was hoping there was a kit out there. He says the hot air gets trapped in there. He mentioned a couple of things that can be done to cool down the engine.

When I first got the bike, one of the guys that worked for the MV Agusta race team said they just cut a big chunk of the fairing out. I didn't want to do it back then and don't want to do that now.

No such thing as a fairing spacer kit for an F4 as far as I know. True about cutting the fairing for larger holes but it's not about the heat. The race headers are bigger and don't fit in behind the standard fairing. They also run a wider bellypan to give the needed clearance

I was able to find this thread. I'll have to see if the company he mentions still makes them.

I also found this site. They sell spacers and I should be able to get longer pins through them.

Good luck finding a Dzus fasteners that are 27-37mm long!

Seriously, that does not seem like a well thought out statement from your mechanic.

Check the forum in detail and you will find the solution to your problem. The 1000 guys can reprogam their ECUs, you can also ceramic coat headers, change coolant, fans and manual switch etc.

Everything that Glenn says. A Microtec ecu installed by X Bikes is the kiddie!
From the aspect of getting the hot air out more efficiently, I removed the metal gauzes at the exits and on the tail too.

They Deffo slow the airflow down..I did a scientific test by blowing through one I had spare and it definitely stopped the tickle on the back of my hand other side..Easy to re install if needs.
Guess what MV did on MY10 models
Same.

Ice, there is a shop in Gardner, MA that re-maps the 5SM ECU that your bike has. Remapping will change the fueling and ignition tables and that reduces generated heat. Additionally, the fan on/off points can be modified to help.

Thanks Joe. I was looking at them to wondering if just removing them would help. I have a Power Commander installed on the bike. I'll see if I can modify the on/off points for the fan silentservice703 and what else I can modify in there.

You can't modify anything in the ECU unless you have the software and the knowledge.
I don't have either, so I rely on Rob to tune my ECUs.
Others have, too.

simple remove the stock Dzus bases and bend sheet metal brackets to move the bases out

whatever distance you want and pop rivet them back on
