I kind of see what you are talking about. I was looking at the faring last night and no 'hole' is needed to be cut (where the red circle is)Northwind said:I used a flap drill bit, worked a charm (they're basically flaps of sandpaper on a hub- instead of cutting you're actually sanding the plastic away, gives a very good edge and you can tweak it if you need to (remember, don't make the panels flush to the mushroom, if you do that and you ever tough them down in a crash you're probably going to crack the panels around the bung)
That's my bike 2 years ago before I bought it. Got all sorts of crap on order and in my condo that I still need to installshekshishekki said::-D I need to do that eventually when the bank account is happier...is that your bike? If so, then you basically have the same exact one i have :-D except your's is uber stock...
Pix speak 1,000 words. Now which dremel grinder did you use? Just one of those round & rough sandpaper thingy's?mmmattc said:I did mine exactly the same as above. Used a dremel, mostly the sandpaper fitting and kept testing. I did it with the lowers on the bike though, dremel works great.
Damn, had to stop installing and put everything back on. Didn't have my torque wrench and couldn't get that bolt out. It must have lock tite on it or something, wouldn't budge and I actually broke a wrench trying to get it off! Time for some Husky tools.imdbui said:thats what i used
Well with the guys that have stock farings, there is no hole required, just a bit of shaving.sv ray said:Most framesliders are a shade less than 2" in diameter. Usually 1 7/8". So you usually use a 2" hole cutting bit in your drill (do pilot hole first!)
