Default Fitting targa undertail on delkevic tail = uhh..

So i have been ****ing around with my targa undertail for awhile now and today i spent like half the day trying to get it to fit with my delkevic tail fairing on the bike, it just wouldnt fit good no matter what i did.

The fairing itself fit on the bike really well, all holes lined up easy. As soon as i had the undertail in and managed to get 2 screws in the fairing basically wouldnt fit. Going to try tomorrow to see if i can get it all together and screwed down or not.

I decided to see if the fairing was shaped funky by attaching the undertail off the bike to my OEM cracked but fixed-ish fairing.. fit perfect, no gaps no serious twisting and all holes line up.

Try to attach it to the delkevic fairing.. with a bit of work i was able to get 3 out of the 4 to line up but the 4th was way off, it also has some big gaps at the edge where the fairing meets the undertail.

Anyway point of this post is to ask other people with delkevic tail fairings if they had problems with their undertail fitting?

Well i was able to fit it all together today.. barely. Tiny bit of trimming on the delkevic fairing and alot of pulling / tugging and i was able to get all the screws in to mount the undertail and the fairing.

Unforunately alot of the holes were not really close, you can tell the fairing needs to be moved up and forward.. but at the same time the mounting tabs on the seat wont clear the fairing as it is!!

Going to call delkevic tomorrow and ask them if they think i got a funky fairing.. not happy at all with the fitment and from all the reviews i have read about delkevic i am purely dissapointed, OEM like fit my ***.
