Fairings!! Fairings!!! Fairings!!!

i guess it even happens to the best of us. yes i dropped my bike but there is minimal damage to the fairings. i was doing 5-8 mph in a parking lot pulling into a parking spot when this a**hole came charging towards me. i hit my brakes and ended up on my side. needless to say I'm in the market for new fairings for a 03-04-05 r6 in blue. for those who needed to replace their fairings where can i get the best price for either a fairing kit or just pieces?

Sucks dude. GL with finding some fairings.

I would go after the city and tell them the hole caused the crash and they should pay for them

Re: Fairings!! Fairings!!! Fairings!!!

That sucks!

Which pieces need replacing? And how badly? You may want to wait a few weeks and see what pops up on classified/ebay/craigslist if the fairings are only cosmetically damaged.

I vote 48 hour temp ban, seeing as he was in so much of a hurry he didn't think to search. All in favour say "I".
