shock Yamaha Thundercat!

Post  Cheshirecat on Thu Feb 14 2013, 18:52

First topic message reminder :

Ok so here goes, my bike was parked outside work and some (person without a father) decided to to remove part of my fairing, nice of them I know!

So priced up replacing the side fairing Steam Ears and as I'm sure your all aware they don't come cheap, then got a price to have it painted, and had to sit down with the shock! My front fender was also cracked so I also needed a new one of them (some Idiot left the disc lock on) mentioning no names! (Cheshirecat).......

So has its Valentines day and I'm one romantic soul, I decided to get my tools out and strip all the fairings off, and as I know you all like lots of pics I decided to get the camera out.. hope this interests some of you!
Never attempted anything like this before..

Broken side fairing.....



Broken front fender.....




Oh what am I doing??





Will it go back together??



Got to love a bit of child labour and its free!!





I'm liking the exposed frame work! Yamacati? (ducatti x yamaha)





Also took exhaust off (can and link pipe) to clean and polish up......sounded lovely when I started it by mistake.. pmsl
Well I'm picking up the new fairings in the morning, got them from G_Link . . so watch this space guys... expect loads of pics and the odd Steam Ears ,

Thanks for looking

ps. not sure how to resize pics (mods feel free to sort em out)....sorry in advance

I've been looking at these too as mine aren't in the best condition. They seem helpful as they'll paint it whatever colours you want.

What sort of modifications did you have to do with the tail pieces to make them fit?

You mentioned a raised petrol cap, was this from the same seller?

Regards

Hi Mike, the rear end on my kit, screwed in from the rear was a bit of a fiddle to fit but nothing too difficult, just make sure you have a drill handy, various files, and a cup of tea or 10!

Thanks Cheshirecat. Is that the 2 black screws at the back?

How about the raised petrol cap?

Yeah the two screws are for the rear tail part, just a shell on tank, might get tank re-sprayed this year sometime...
