Fairing heat protection

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by Jayden_paul, Mar 3, 2008.

  1. Hi all,
    I've just got some new fairings for my cbr250R from China, they have come minus any protection on the inside like my old ones had from the engine heat.
    Anyone know what that stuff is actually called or a place to get some in melbourne?

  2. You can buy sheets of heat insulation (fibreglass mat covered with foil) from bike shops and glue it on.
  3. I'd use 2-part epoxy (Araldite or similar) or contact adhesive. These should stick firmly but if you ever have to pull off the foil it won't 'integrate' with the plastic. Any automotive shop should be able to help you with the heat-reflective foil. It might even be self-adhesive.
