    Re: got my Chinese-made replacement fairing set

    That's purty (for a red one)... ...I'm happy to see how good those chrome decals look!
    I ordered a set for my black bird and was a little worried about how shiny they are but now I can't wait to get them on..... they look great.
    Well done!!

    Hey Dave, I see you have a fork brace. Where did you get that / how much / how do you like it? Thanks

    http://m.ebay.com/itm/FORK-BRACE-HON...-/261616181764 I haven't had a chance to take the bike in the mountains since the install and probably couldn't tell the difference anyway. Just makes sense mechanically.

    That looks great, Dave. Fantastic price and quality.

    FWIW, I had to replace one of my panels a while ago. I just went with OEM. The panel was a shade darker than the originals and quite obvious in some light conditions, so maybe the paint does change over time. No scientific evidence to back it up, but I think it may just be time that does it. The bike spent all of it's life indoors (PO and me) when not being ridden. And goodness knows it's not like we get much sun here! Lol.

    You can see the difference between the nose cone (original) and the side panel (new). Oh, and the paint surface was relatively easy to scratch too. Looks like it's 1-0 aftermarket vs.OEM

    Well, I thought I had some special buttons now, but some people have even specialer buttons.

    Re: got my Chinese-made replacement fairing set

    My tank is proof of the color red changing. It came with a half red leather cover that protects the back of the tank. Take the cover off and there's a nice line between the two colors with the one under the cover a tad darker. So I have to leave that cover on forever. That's a long time....................

    Re: got my Chinese-made replacement fairing set

    The black space on your new lowers is a perfect spot for a HONDA decal (or similar) if you've ever had the desire to add such a thing.
    I'm really particular about keeping my vehicles clean and simple... even to the point of stripping factory names etc..... but for some reason I have
    the insane desire to add a couple of decals on my BB
    I haven't done it yet.... maybe I'll forget about it by spring.......
