Complete new front fairing?
« on: 09 September 2020, 09:15:27 PM »
Hi,

Had a smallish accident this morning, for the first time in 23 years of riding bikes.

Kid went through a zebra crossing at full speed on his bicycle, not stopping to look left or right. I did what I best could and thanks to my reaction I only hit his rear bicycle wheel, but also caught a part of his rucksack and him with my fairing, which sent him spinning for 180 degrees. Landed on the tarmac with bruises and shock, but nothing serious.

I managed to stay on the bike, however my front fairing took a beating, broke and left side got pushed inside. Mountings for the fairing are all broken (mounting frame included). Inner black plastics are both warped. The left mirror is done too.

I'm looking to buy a complete new front fairing with frame, because this one cannot be patched.

Looked through Wemoto, but they don't have any. Ebay has partial fairing parts only, I need everything that goes in front except for the lights, instruments and blinkers.

Any clue where I might find that?

Thanks

I had this problem trying to get a front fairing when I had a 600, ended up having to get a fiberglass one and spraying it.

And are his parents or their insurance paying for the repairs..?

These appear to be in stock at £242 at #5. You need to pick the right colour.

Thanks for the link.
Just been to the local Yamaha dealership and parents were fair enough to pay for all the original parts immediately, so I could say I was lucky because kid didn't have any insurance on his bicycle.

Total cost ~735 GBP.

I paid for the new right mirror from my own pocket, because the difference would be too visible. They were 17 years old after all.

Boxeye or Foxeye fairing?
If it's a Foxeye, I think the FZS100 fairing could be made to fit with modifications?If it's a Boxeye, does the fairing need to be undamaged or just complete? I have a Boxeye front in the garage but big frankenstein splits - would need a fair bit of repair.

2003 foxeye.
The fairing cannot be repaired because all the hooks are broken as well as the mini frame...

I purchased the boxeye version of the Ebay link that's been posted.  The quality is pretty good but beware of a couple of things.  The inside isn't smoothed off and is a rough fibreglass look. 
The mounting screws points to the frames were a different size to the original so the screws didn't fit.


Other than that its a cost effective replacement but factor in spraying costs.

The father paid for factory new, already painted front fairing, so fortunately I don't need to worry about that. Thanks though.

I found a place online that did decals.  They were absolutely spot on.
