Hey all. The slipstream spitfire fairing is actually working out great. 65 bucks new and just big enough to keep the wind off my chest.



But when you install it, be careful not to over-tighten the wing nuts that come with it. I broke one of the plastic wing nuts off with moderate pressure. Fix is to fireplace the wing nut with a matching thread hex nut I suppose. I will be doing that shortly

ooh yes, a locking washer perhaps.



i foresee a pile of stainless hex bolts of various threads in my future to replace those nasty phillips screws as well
