    Hey folks,

    Today I took off the side and the front fairings off my 2011 GT250r for a sand and re-paint, however after taking the fairings off, I've really come to like the naked look of the bike.

    Does anyone know if I leave the side fairings off altogether, if it'll damage the motor or the bike?

    The actual naked version of the GT looks the same with the fairings off, however I have no idea if the naked version itself has sections covered off where the full fairing bike wouldn't due to the fairings protecting the engine etc when on.



    Any problems riding it naked with the engine exposed?

  2. is the top part of the fairing secured well? or can flap around?

  3. Top part/front end is attached fully and doesn't flap around as the side fairings and under carriage fairings are separate - if that makes sense?

    Cheers!

  5. The hyosung frame and engine are from two different naked bikes, it'll be fine.

  7. You won't damage anything running it like that. Just be aware of wiring and line placement and make sure anything important can't get snagged or smacked by road debris.
