After testing the effects of taping over the eye fairing vents, or pseudo
turnsignal holes, I decided to put something more permanent in place. Tony
and others have put Fiamm or other horns in there but I rarely, if ever,
have occasion to use the horns. I really would have liked to put in running
lights but after checking all sorts of autoparts stores (like Autozone, Pep
Bro's, etc.) and the stock at the Honda/Kawasaki/Triumph dealer, I couldn't
find any that would fit the fairing vent holes without making major cuts. I
booted that idea in favor of a semi-permanent reflector installation.
I made a cardboard template and cut yellow, SAE approved, plastic reflectors
to fit. I beveled the back edge to give a bonding surface and did the same
on the fairing.
Turns out the actual ABS or whatever material the fairing is made of is
black since that was the color after sanding the edges of the holes to match
the reflectors. Then 5 minute epoxy did a fine job of bonding the
reflectors into the holes. Looks nice.
Contrary to someone else's experience reported on repairing some fairing
damage, the epoxy seems very well stuck.
So now I have a little less airflow coming up by the forks and a more
visible front-end. Works for me.
