As long as you have some fitting skills and donít expect perfection out of the box, you should be fine. I would suggest you go out and buy.some black door edge trim to give it a more finished look on the two exposed edges. A heat igun makes the trim very pliable.

If you decide to continue this project, you may want to grab yourself some two part epoxy as well. Epoxy the back side of all the nuts where the two halves of the fairing come together before you start. Those little critters can prove to be a challenge until you epoxy them. The fairing will make a huge difference on your bike, both looks and ride ability. Itís one of the best mods you can do. The most important thing to rememberÖtake your time. Mock it up before you have it painted.


Good Luck!!!

I have taken the Reckless leap. I am one of those that think it would look good on my bike, but I don't know if I will like it and to spend the money on a Woody and take that chance? The Reckless is the perfect price to let me test a fairing and see if it's for me. If I like it and the Reckless doesn't hold up then I'll step up to a Woody. I would think that with 8 month and 1144 post that Alex would address some of these reoccurring issues? We shall see...

I have a 1800C, do you have to remove the fork covers on the 1800C?
