Finalizing Bodywork and more…

I finally completed the bodywork on my R3. I installed the SharkSkinz fairings in a previous video, but I still had some minor challenges to secure the upper fairing properly. I tried to install the fairing stay brackets from Norton Motorsports but didn’t have a lot of success. Watch the video to see what I did to resolve the problem.  

I also modified the seat bracket from SharkSkinz to support a DZUS Pro fastener instead of the small screw that came with the connector. Using the quick-release fastener will significantly simplify the installation and disassembly of the race tail/race seat.  

I am also showing how I fixed the alignment problem I encountered when I initially tried to connect the lower and upper fairings with larger fasteners.  

And finally, I’ll show you how I modified my Puig windscreen to fit in between the upper fairing stay while remaining flush against the inside of the upper fairing.  

This video is quite a mashup of information, but I wanted to share all the details and hopefully help you with your project!  

You’ll see the painted fairings as soon as I get them back from the body shop!
