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

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".
