Where can I find fairings?
« on: 05 April, 2019, 12:13:11 AM »
My bike (CBF1000GT A8) lives in the garage with a quad bike (off road farm thingy), usually quite happily together. Some time ago now though, I managed to reverse the quad bike into it, causing quite a fair old gouge down the side of the upper left fairing. Caught it with the quad's luggage rack. Cue loadsa French words. It is still intact and it's quite usable. But as time goes on, it seems to bother me more. So I was wondering what the best way of remedying it is. I could always take it to the local spray specialists and I'm sure they'll do a fine job, for a price. But I wondered whether it might be easier and perhaps even cheaper to just get a replacement. The problem with that is that it would have to be the right colour, or it sort of defeats the purpose because I'd have to get it sprayed anyway. But where would I get one? I expect Honda might get a blank one (if they hold spares of an 11 year old bike that is) that they would prepare in the right colour (Quasar silver metallic (NH-A48M) by the way) and charge the Earth. I also expect that they will be pretty scarce in breakers, fairings being the first thing to go in a bump and a cursory trawl of the internet didn't reveal any.

Just wondered if anyone had experience of this and could give me the benefit of it before I decide which way to go. Thanks.

Hi Pedro, set up a couple of searches for the panel your looking for on eBay. One by name ie; CBF1000 silver fairing panel. The other should be the specific part number for the silver item.

eBay will email you if one comes up for auction
