2010's vented side fairing

Does anyone know or think the 2010's plastic will fit the 08 312? Specificly talking about the front fairings, looking to try and reduce the temp a tad. I have the impeller, bike still runs hot though..

I don't know about the new stuff, but you could remove the fairing screens. The screens are nice cosmetically but don't allow much air through. One thing you may find though is that the heat is just directed onto your legs and it will feel hotter.

I already looked at this and it appears that there is a different number of fasteners. I would expect that you would have to replace the whole front end of the bike.

From what I have read in press releases very few components of the new models (either F4 or B4) will retro fit onto older models. Almost everything has been changed.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Yeloboi - why don't you have the exhaust pipes (headers) ceramic coated inside and outside - I've just had mine done and the underfairing temps are much reduced.
The outer fairing where it meets the bellypan is now warm to touch where before it was hot to touch - and we are in the middle of our summer temps now - 32 deg C yesterday......

Nil desperandum bastardo carburundum !!

I'm not 100% sure what the correct answer is, however I have had a good look at the new 2010 bike and I would be amazzed if any of the fairing panels would fit the old 2000 to 2009 bike. The new F4 is not like all the other 2000/09 modules, its a completley different bike.

The only things that I could see on the new bike that would fit on to the old bike was the wheels and the levers.

Thanks for the response. I'm looking at removing the mesh and possibly making my own extra vents.

Are you really that worried about overheating to go as far as cutting new vents? Just curious.
