Just have to vent a bit..

I'm starting the bike preparations for the track. Since I have new(er) plastic on the bike, I'm putting the old, beat up crap back on for the track. First thing I noticed that I locTited some screws into rubber grommets. Damn things wouldn't come out. Through a lot of work and cursing (that's the key, you know), I got the plastics off the bike, but the windshield is still connected (luckily I've got a spare). The screws in question are stripped and hardened steel (just my luck). I was putting the old plastic back on, and one of the rubber grommets for the windscreen ripped. Then one of the fairing brackets is stripped out. DAMN. Perfect day and I can't go riding. I'm beginning to think all these plastic pieces aren't made to be taken on/off so many times (3 since I've had the bike).

Luckily the parts aren't too expensive. Getting them in time for the track day may be a problem though.

I'd recommend using minimum fasteners for the track plastic. Zip tie the upper at the mirror mounts and one bolt to stabilize it.
