Need Help

Hey whats up guys long story short, let someone use my bike and of course it was crashed. I can't get OEM orange fairings as soon as I would like and also will cost me over $1700. My other option is to get the street fighter look. I have the original speedometer. If someone could help me out on what is the best options for a headlight kit with a windscreen if possible. I am purchasing the Spiegler handle bar kit. Id like to get some feed back and suggestions on how to make this bike look good without spending over $1500.


thanks, ride safe!

not going to say these are good, but its options.

1. Look for totaled bikes, junkyards, craigslist or the classifieds here. You can piece together the fairings part by part for very cheap. After you get them all, you can get them painted for pretty cheap.

2. Police/Bank auctions. you can find some really nice bikes for really cheap, could potentially snag a really cheap ride to use and dump your old one; or if its cheap enough...use it as a parts bike. its just an option

3. depending how bad the plastics are, get someone with repair knowledge and have them repaired/sanded/painted. If you are decent at it, do it yourself

again..just options to think about, craigslist/ebay can bring up cheap plastics. you may just have to say goodbye to orange and get whatever you can. Some people on this forum have plastics for sale too; check them out.

Also, bike year, pics and additional information about what is busted up would likely help some people out, cant tell you squat without at least the year/make

See, the beautiful part about this whole scenario is that whomever you loaned the bike to should be responsible for damaging your bike, not you. You can always buy aftermarket fairings and even get some deals on OEM from eBay. Shop around a little before you go the "well damn, crashed my bike so I'll just half ass a street fighter look" route. A true SF is an extensive project that takes some serious attention to detail. Not just ripping off fairings and bolting a headlight on it. There are some deals out there, just be patient and keep your eyes peeled.

^ thats how we would expect most people to look at it

unfortunately the "well you knew it could happen" crowd outweigh the "its only right i fix what i broke" crowd

Thank you guys I really don't want to spend a crap load of money the guy who crashed (my own brother) is out of work and only came up with 500. I'm really not trying to spend thousands on this bike I plan on eventually using it as a track bike when that time comes I'll get Chinese fairings.

If you want to use it as a track bike, I'd begin the track process now.

Additionally, I have a set of what I believe are Chinese fairings on my 06 ZX6R, and they look pretty good and fit well enough.

I agree that almost everyone that 'street fighter' mods their sportbike ends up looking like garbage, because they don't do clean installs, they don't tuck wiring and hoses, and it really just looks like they crashed the bike (which they did).

In your case, save the duplicated effort, just work on what your really want the bike to be. Pick up the track parts and go.

Never ride faster than you can stop

partzilla.com you can look up the OEM part numbers you need and can either order it through them or call a dealer to get the parts for you. or search ebay and the internet.
