This is my first time posting on this informative forum. Thanks for all the help so far.
I recently purchased a dilapidated 1996 CBR600F3 with 30k miles from a friend who decided to abandon a project that he was going to use the CBR's drivetrain. This is the first motorcycle I have ever owned or worked on, so there was a steep learning curve in trying to get everything situated. The bike needed front and rear brakes and calipers, the wheel bearings were so shot the rotors rubbed holes through the forks, all the fairings were missing or broken, and the bike was just in a poor state all around.
This is the only pic I have of the bike when we first got it. Yup, a broken CBR600 fits in the back of a Gen2 Exploder:
I stripped the bike down to the frame and cleaned, replaced, and painted most of the parts. This is the state it's currently in:
My next big purchase is a fairing kit for the bike, and I was hoping to get some input from you guys.
The original fuel tank is yellow and purple, and none of the fairing kits I'm looking at uses this color scheme, so I will need a fuel tank cover. How do these covers fit? Are these just as easy as slipping on a plastic cover over the original tank after removing the fuel fill door?
The two fairing kits I'm looking at are:
The second one is the one I'm leaning towards, but I can find a picture of it on a bike. It's very similar to the original black/red/white color scheme, but it has silver instead of white on the tail. If anyone has a picture of an F3 with this kit on it, I'd be great if you can post it.
Also, has anyone installed these Chinese fairings on a bike? If so, how was the fitment?
Thanks, any help is appreciated.
