Assembly instructions motorcycle fairing!
During assembly, we are going to assume that it is a racetrack motorcycle. We will use the CMW made MotoGP race fairings as an example. If you have bought a fairing for your street motorcycle, you must also cut out the cut-outs for lamps etc., if they are not already there, in addition to the descriptions.
Preferably use a Dremel router. Drill, because of the risk of the drill tipping inside the casing, observe the correct cutting speed of the drill Reamer/file/sandpaper, screwdriver and wrench, screws and nuts. With the CMW made Mini-twin race fairings all you need is a 5 and 6 mm Allen key and a 6mm drill bit; that's all, we provide the rest!
Remove original fairing. Hold the parts one by one on the motorcycle and check the fit. GRP fairings will warp during storage/shipping and exposure to heat, so slight tension is perfectly normal.
The cladding parts are now screwed together.
To do this, hold all parts together (fix with adhesive tape if necessary) and mark and drill the drill holes for screwing on the panelling parts (ideally with a Dremel cutter and conical sanding head, otherwise with a metal drill and low speed).
Then screw it together, but do not tighten the screws completely yet. Now the complete disguise with the motorcycle connected. To do this, check the alignment of the fairing again and mark and drill the drill holes for attachment to the motorcycle. If necessary, prepare fasteners/holes on the motorcycle.
Then screw it together, but do not fully tighten the screws yet. Our kit has quick fit adapters making the screws bolt on for a second!
Now stop the disc, drill the required holes in the panelling (observe the correct cutting speed of the drill to avoid tilting) and assemble.
Align the panel precisely again and tighten in a criss-cross pattern. In the case of severe tension, it helps to place the machine in the sun or a well-heated hall for a while before tightening the last tightening with the mounted fairing, or to heat the GRP parts evenly in a different way. Secure all screw connections with Loctite (or another screw lock)!
- Hints / Tips
Very important: If something doesn't fit, don't use too much force to tighten it, rather loosen the screws again. Then fix the tension (e.g. correct drill holes, only with a Dremel cutter and bend or underlay the fairing holder to fit etc.) and try again. Tensions are released under the influence of heat (see above) - but this also means, conversely, that dismantled parts must not be placed in the sun, as otherwise they could warp.
The CMW mini twin race fairing kit all come with premier gelcoats! This means you can spray paint your race fairing straight out of the box. Make your own unique style in moments.
