RS Fairing on my R100

I'm thinking of installing this on my NAKED R100RS.. it came to me as a naked bike.

Just the upper RS fairing.

The holes for the fairing bracket are already there...buy a new bracket since almost every used one is bent..only takes a tip over in the garage to bend the thing.

Need to extend the sire harness for instruments and turn signals.

Easy install

I have two on the shelf ... both bent. I just can't seem to make yard art of them quite yet. Heh.

Sorta looks like a hunter shot it.
Was it ever mounted above a mantle piece?
It's different.......

Bent fairing bracket? Unbent it.

Unbent it? I'm shocked! It's that dusty Aussie with kangaroo fur stuck on his fairing, lowering the tone of the neighbourhood.

May I remind you, sir, that this is a BMW forum? Bent parts are not unbent (unless by white-coated men with laser-beams at HPN). They are replaced with new, straight, genuine BMW parts. With new bolts and lockwashers. Every two years, in case they become bent.

Noob alert. Obviously hasn't been exposed to downunder Airhead ownership.

On the contrary, the downunder style of airhead ownership is the one I can identify with, maybe it's a southern hemisphere thing. When I read the "always replace everything every winter" type posts I feel like I'm in the wrong place (or at least in the wrong income bracket to own a BMW 'properly').

Nah,

I strap the fairing to my head, looking out the headlight hole.

I'd be 'Tootincarman'

Mesher, I said the above with 'tongue firmly in cheek'. I had assumed (prior to putting up the previous responce - correctly as it happens) that your prior post was in the same spirit.
