Where to buy fairings or duct tails

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by WantFreedom, Jul 20, 2015.

  1. Hi Guys,



    Just wondering if anyone knows the best place to buy fairings or some call them duct tails for a Honda CB250 1995 are there any wreckers I should try around Melbourne or try order them off the internet somewhere? they seem hard to come by or maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place.

    I am looking for red in color similar to mine they don't have to be brand new but in a reasonably god condition would be nice.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

  2. Wreckers will charge you a fortune but you can make them do the work by posting something to findapart dot com dot au

    Maybe you'll find a bargain. I'd be browsing gumtree looking for backyard wreckers you'll get a better deal but expect to have to repaint and maybe repair.

  3. Yeah I think one wrecker is looking around $75 per fairing, I have been looking at backyard wreckers but none wrecking. I'm not looking at spending a fortune just not worth it on my bike but I thought if I could pick some up cheap it would be nice, thought there might be some secret places I don't know about.

    Would it be worth looking to see if someone could tidy up my current fairings in the motorcycle business or it would just end up costing too much ?

  4. Depends what the problem is and how bad. Repairing fairings is an annoying job and if you get them plastic welded it can be a bit costly. If you have a dremel tool and the right compounds you can do it yourself, sand back and get it professionally painted. That would be the cheapest way.

    Otherwise, heck, it's a 250 and if you don't care who else is going to care? My FZR has a crack down one fairing and I superglued paddlepop sticks on the inside and applied duct tape for a bit of extra strength. It's a hairline so you can hardly see it and I just don't care lol

  5. I honestly read the title as where to buy fairings or duct tape.

    Can't find new ones then stuff it I'll just tape em back up.

    Anyway $75 doesn't seem too steep for a fairing

  6. Only one is cracked slightly but nothing major ofcourse there is the scuff marks and normal wear and tear from a 1995 bike, I guess my my aim was to pretty my bike up a little on the cheap that was all :)

    But as you say joker heck its just a 250 hehe
