Speak for yourself Wild-Kat! 👅

Welcome to the site Andy. Hope you're enjoying the 'cat - well maybe not in the recent weather Question scratch
Tell us more about the bike and your riding history, or post up a pic of the bike. And, if we can be of help, let us know. Most questions will get you a knowledgeable answer - depends on the questions really!

Hope you can make one of the group rideouts sometime. :whoop:

Cheer,
Chris

Hi Andy

I agree with WKW.........it is a madhouse here.
No doubt you've probably worked that but out already.
I've sure you and your bike will love it here.

Sorry to hear about your SMIDSY incident........Hope you manage to get your panel cheap.

Cheers
Rosco

aboard Andy great

And yes - it is a madhouse - but even a funhouse Wink

andy horsley wrote:does anyone know were i can get a cheap r/h fairing

Maybe this could be an option for you :idea:

Fairing

There are more designs than just the Rossi design...
But i heard that the quality is not the best - but it is cheap Rolling Eyes

Or just look to the needed parts on ebay like espaceman3 wrote clink

Hi, and welcome.

Hope you get the fairing sorted without too much pain. Other than eBay, I don't have any suggestions. If it is cracked, then it can be welded - but isn't always a cheap option.

I had the same experience, put me right off Dunlop - went running back to what I know, Michelin. It's good to know what is good out there though.

hijacking this into a tyres thread even more, I've got the Metzeler sports-touring compound tyres on my 'cat and so far so good (probably done about 150 miles in dry and 150 miles in wet so far).
