zzr 250 fairings

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' at netrider.net.au started by pommydave, May 19, 2011.

  1. Hey,

    Can anyone tell me how I can get new fairings for my scratched ZZR 250 2002? Its a champagne or gold/white colour. I had a fall a week ago and the insurance may scrap it cos of the 'cosmetic' damage even though the mechanical parts would only cost $300!!!!!!

    I dont want it scrapped as it was in great condition- til I got my dozy mitts on it! I'd rather get it fixed mechanically and sort the fairings myself.

    Cheers

  2. Ebay.
    You can get a full set of fairings for $500 delivered.
    $25 for enough paint to match the tank.
    $25 for new sticker for the tank.

    They also come in a range of colours.

  3. Dave, beware of ebay, if you are going to attempt to get off ebay, make sure you get INJECTION molded, they are more reliable and a closer match to OEM, stay away from "PRESS" molded. Trust me, we have china fairings and they are HOPELESS, to return them costs more than 2 x what we paid for them. We got PRESS molded and they suk.

  5. No worries, knowing nuffin about them, me and my mate got burned, thinking we bought off a guy with good reviews lol. Good reviews can mean NOTHING! i left a good review, why? because i would have lost the $550US if i didn't. PayPal offered zero protection, they are a joke! to get a full $550US i had to send the package at my own cost back to the seller. It would have cost me $1000+ to ship back to china from Aus because the package was to big to use Aus Post services, and the courier companies are a RIP. So bargained $200US back for a positive review. Sucks i know, really didn't want to leave a positive review, but we were in damage control and needed to recoup some of the costs.

    So if i can save someone else the heartache and stress trying to firstly, apply fairings that don't match, then raising a dispute with the seller and paypal, then being told tough cookies, then i'm glad to help others and stop them going through the same crap.
