Another question about the Gixxer, mounting plastics.

Ok so I've got the skinz painted and getting ready to mount them. My question is do you just use the stock mounting hardware that you take off the old plastics with? Also the sharkskinz only mount by the windscreen, to the fairing stay, and one point on each side for the upper. Then the lower mounts to two spots on the frame, and attaches to the upper via three bolts on each side. Is this correct?

Just seems the street plastics mount to more places that the sharkskinz. Unless that is just the three pieces compared to the two mounting to each other.

Hopefully someone understands what I'm talking about, if not I'll try to post some pictures.

Dave,
the top fairing mounts to the fairing stays(up by windscreen) the 2 spots on the frame and underneath your gauges there is a bracket. You need to drill 2 holes in the plastic and then zip tie them to the bracket. Lower fairing has the 2 frame mounts on the bottom and then use zues fastners in the spots you would connect them to the upper. Makes for much faster removal to work on changing your oil, etc etc.

Thanks Jim, that explains why they were moving up and down and didn't seem to mount that good. I don't have the two holes underneath drilled and attached. I will do that tonight. What about the little ear pieces that go over the ram air ducts? The stock fairings had a bolt on each side there too, do I need to drill holes there and mount them or no?

Also where can I find the zues fastners?

I did not attach those tabs to the fairing however i might do that now for if you bumb the ram air tubes its a pain to get them back on correctly without loosening the fairing/ The zues fastners can be got from Woodfield or Workstands in Crstal lake however I like the ones dano got me better then the ones at Workstands.

by the way dont over tighten those zip ties and drill the holes in far enough so not to break/crack the plastics
