Newbie stripping
« on: 22 October 2016, 08:08:28 PM »
Stripping the bike that is 😁
Having a broken fairing that i'm planning to replace with a triumph triple round headlights or a single one or a "streetfighter"  look light with fairing.

Need info on bracket for the speedometer etc. And also where to get a tidy tail bracket.

Have searched the forum, but couldn't find the info i'm looking for.

The bike is a 98 😀

People always over estimate how difficult bodywork repairs are. Have a go - Whats the worst that could happen?  :)

I like the bike, but the fairing is ugly so that is not coming back on. Anyone with light from a gsr or a mt?

You can buy the bits for headlight conversion on eBay and just make a bracket for the clocks ....

Easy to measure the hole centres on the fairing bracket then centre's for handlebar risers then make a few templates from cardboard before cutting any metal
Complete fabrication, I didn't make it up!
