removed lower fairing

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by Tomcatalex, Jul 2, 2008.

  1. I removed my lower fairing to get to the clutch cable adjustment, and found out that its much easier to get to a lot of things with it off eg base idle adjuster, oil filler, oil filter, etc
    Ive been riding with it off and found out it doesnt hit going over a tall speedhump either

    my question, is there any problem not having a lower fairing, my old bike didnt have one as it was a naked, what use does it do, does it effect high speed riding etc? Im not planning on going over 110 +/- 10 kph anyway


  2. Whatever turns you on.

    You'll do no harm.
  3. even looks better off. :cool:
  4. you think it looks better off, I may have to polish the motor to make it look even better

    Sould I flog the lower fairing off on ebay?? :LOL:
  5. You should keep going.
    Cut the fairing off just above the indicator, then fit a belly pan :cool:.
  6. hehe, fun!!
    just like running around with no pants on.
  7. if i cut too much from the fairing it may start to look like a bandit

    is that a good thing :cool: or bad :twisted:
  8. I was thinking more like this:
  9. :LOL: FJ holden
    you're thinking more like this, so these guys could ride it

    get rid of that out dated 90's look, and go back one more decade
  10. Hey the FJ is from the 80's - it's your bike that has the dated 90's look :p.
