I need some help re-attaching the Faring on my 79 CX500C. Does anyone have instructions or pictures on how to attach the Faring. I made the mistake on not taking pictures when I removed it a couple of years ago. Any help would be great! Thanks.

Is that like the fairing on the GL? Mine sits on a bracket, has 4 bolts (2 on each side) and plugs in. Looked more intimidating and complicated than it really was once I got into it.



I could be completely off, but trying to help anyway

I know it has two brackets and plugs in for the lights. It stays stationary. Dakota, do you have pics of yours?

Bandit, the pictures didn't seem to come through. Do you have a link or can you try to repost them?

Here is the front of the bike- you can see the bracket/ framework that the fairing sits on top of











This is the underside of the fairing- well, one of the 2 sides with bolts. The bolts go through the holes on the framework, it bolts down on those 4, and ten also there's 4 smaller ones in the front... you can kinda see those smaller bolt holes in this picture (bottom of the fairing)







Does this help at all?

Is it a Vetter Fairing? I have some pics of the Vetter mountings for a standard CX that might help, if it's a Vetter let me know and I'll dig out the pics and post.



I had no trouble seeing the images Bandit posted, who could miss that bright red.
