  • 2003 Suzuki GSXR 600 Flaring

    Unfortunately some idiot side-swiped my partner on the way home from work tonight and he came off his bike.

    Thankfully he steered it into the dirt so he managed to minimise the damage to him thankfully but the bike it a bit smashed up and it is going to need new flaring (looks like he nicked a rock as there's a massive gouge on the side) and a new indicator for the right hand side

    So any ideas where to start looking besides from the obvious suzuki dealers. We want to get it fixed ASAP as its his pride and joy

    Thanks guys

    What is best in life? Troll the forums, see the threads derailed before you and hear the lamentations of the moderators.

      you mean fairing.

      try ring up motorcycle wreckers. they'll have it cheaper than dealers will.

      also if that fails ebay? will take longer probably to get here but will be cheaper. (although if you're not careful you will end up paying a "cheap price" for a crap fairing)

        Before someone starts giving you grief, "fairing" not "flaring".

        Try the dealers, try the wreckers. Believe it or not, try a panelbeater that does bikes - the things they can do with plastic today are damned impressive.

        Failing that, fairings or parts thereof come up all the time on eBay - my av started as a full set that I got shipped from the states for about the same as two secondhand panels here.

        Good to hear he wasn't hurt - no chance of insurance sorting it for you?

        Best of luck with it.

          He hasn't got comprehensive - just 3rd party

          The flaring issue explains why I was having no luck on google lol

              was the driver insured? if so his insurance should cover the repair bill, no ?

                “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                    A bit pricey, especially on the shipping, but you never know what can be arranged with the seller. This hasn't got long to run, but you might be able to contact the seller and organise "Buy it now" listing or something.
