Kawasaki F&S Tour Pack fairing

Any interest? I'm thinkin' about selling one of mine. It's gonna be awhile before my personal 750 is ready--too many other things to get done--and I've got three fairings, altho only one set of lowers; the lowers would go with the fairing. I'm thinking $400 shipped, lower 48.

Should be pics of it mounted on my bike in one of my photo albums; I'll double check that when I get to the hotel this evening.

Had to upload some:

That's the original fairing I had on the bike; the one I'm selling doesn't have the speaker holes, or the flying V on the front. I'll take some pictures of the actual fairing/parts when I get back in Wednesday, and get 'em out of the shed.

Yeah, hotel; I'm at the Plaza Inn in Big Spring, TX, next to the TA on I-20. I'm here one night out of three; part of the job.

^ Fair enough, no pun intended. Cool, I love travel, just curious where you were. Still in Texas I see, good stuff. Didn't know if it was some place exotic like Belize or something.

Anyway, staying on topic: Faring for a VN750 - go...

I originally wanted one of those when they came out, but the price was ridiculous. Then when they were discontinued, Kawasaki was almost giving them away, and I didn't know about it, so I missed out. But now that I have a Goldwing, I no longer want one for the Vulcan. I now prefer it with the little tiny Memphis Shades Shooter windshield.

Well, that ended up goin' to pot. Temporarily taking it off the market; found slight damage I had forgotten was there, it's been so long since I pulled it off the bike. Scrape that needs repairing on the right side of the fairing, and a scrape on the left lower that needs to be redone. I had repaired the lower before, but used the wrong stuff; used Bondo when I should've used Plastic-Weld.

I'll do the fixin', probably in a couple weeks, and repost with pics; got other things taking priority right now.

On the plus side, I can get in and out of the shed now; found stuff I've been looking for, and stuff I forgot I had!

If the fairing is made of ABS, it will be difficult to repair. I belong to a number of Goldwing forums, and no Goldwing owner has yet found a satisfactory way to repair the stuff. I don't know why they didn't use fiberglass, which is easily repaired.

It is; injection molded ABS, which, surprisingly to me anyway, is lighter than fiberglass. I've got a fiberglass fairing similar to the Tour Pack fairing, and it's quite a bit heavier.

There are several methods of repairing ABS that work, but it depends on the repair. Plastic Weld epoxy and fiberglass cloth reinforce a break better than ABS cement in some cases; cement and another piece of ABS sheet better in others. Plastic Weld by itself is a decent filler; Bondo and JB Weld won't hold.
