Similar to the post above but these are readily available.   I'm ordering some for my YZF race fairings.

Can't say I know the proper way to mount the aluminum if it's any different, but you might want to get you a transfer screw set, if you don't already have one.

I dont quite understand what this is used for?
Maybe for transfering the holes of the mountings trough the fairing?

thanks

Yes.  They're pretty useful.  Anytime you want to mount something to existing threaded holes, let's say a lid to a box.  You screw those into your boxes threaded holes, lay you lid on top, then tap.  The transfer screw puts a dimple on the lid where you need to drill.  They're great for oddly shaped things that are difficult to measure for hole locations.

I've used speedy fasteners on windshields and fairings with great results.  The screw pulls a capture nut through the rubber flange and causes it to spread and grip the hole.



I´m short before ordering a set of these....they look good and easy to use!Wont these screws come loose after some time?
Is there also a screw type with a cotter pin for removable parts of the fairing?

Those rubber "well nuts" are great for windscreens but are not really suitable to mount a fairing to the bike.

Many race bikes used a mount that was a tube and over the end of that tube they had a plastic piece that was bolted to the fairing and was retained in/on the tube with a clip to allow for quick release.

In this picture you can see the top and side mounts that have teh nylon end caps in place

You can get some delrin parts machined like that or weld a short length of tube to a 10cm length of flat steel and glass that into the fairing. That should slip over the tubular mount you fabricate.

On a race bike, I would normally have a tube that runs across the frame and attached to the upper engine mounts.  At the front I would weld a tube to the steering head - pointing forwards.

On some I would bend a piece of flat aluminum and attach it to the engine side covers and use a 1/4 turn fastener.  On the street it's better to use rubber mounts and regular 6mm bolts.  Saving a few seconds on a street bike fairing removal isn't work the wear and tear with solid mounts.


CUSHION COWLING 94570-04A00 from a GSXR will work.  https://images.cmsnl.com/img/products/cushioncowling_big9457004A00-01_c626.jpg
