Put my bike back together

Looking for someone to help me get my bike put back together. Found some good prices on things ( I think) but dont know for sure. I need several parts and dont know the names of all of them. Also dont know what else needs to be fixed. On a budget also!

I think I found all the parts just need help installing them... Stator cover/gasket... full fairing set... left peg and shift lever and left handlebar clip thing... not the bar end the whole handlebar that connects to the triple tree.

That doesn't sound too hard O.o but i've never messed with the stator cover. If you still need help after finals I can try to lend a hand.

All of that is relatively ez, fairings would be the hardest on that list. Dont buy new, fleabay is ur friend and has an abundance of parts. Their not called squixrs for nothing rofl.

Really sounds like easy stuff... get one of those folding allen key deals you see at the checkout at any autozone and you will have no problem unscrewing the old, then screw the new clip on (that's the clippy onny thandlebanr thing that goes on the triple tree).
Though I haven't ever messed with aftermarket fairings, I hear you might have to make your own holes. My usual advice is rather than buy fairings, do some diy ojt and make a streetfighter!

Auctmarts on ebay if ur buying aftermarket and want street fairings Cheap and fit pretty good in relative terms plus the paint is pretty nice for the price. I put a set on a cbr 1k and it was a really good fit. The oem gsxr fairings suck lol, too many pieces.

I bought some fairings off a guy here on Motohouston that just happened to post that he is getting rid of all this back 08 GSXR fairings to change the color of his entire bike... holes and screws are all there. I see how to change the clip on handlebar thing but not sure how to take the grip/controls off the broken one. As for the stator cover that part scares me (just being honest) and I think the fairings look like a big puzzle that ive never put together LOL

The control has two screws and it comes apart in two pieces. Unbolt and rebolt on new one, its a clamshell and tightens to itself gripping the clipon. The grip can be removed if you have an air compressor by blowing air in but its easier to just get a new set. Cut the old ones off and spray aqua net inside the new ones. Slide them on and let them sit over night. They wont budge after. The stator cover is straight forward, unbolt old and bolt new one on. The fairings should already be assembled in pieces, two side uppers, two side lowers, tail piece, and a front. Just take ur time pulling the old ones off paying attention to where the bolts go and the new ones should go right back on. Gixxer.com prob has more detailed info on all the above.

If my memory serves me right the Stator cover has all kinds of on the inside of it that has to be taken apart... the fairings are all off the bike however he dosnt have the lower fairing... so i am still looking for one left lower fairing. Also I dont have access to all the required tools to do this job. Nor do I have access to a trailer to take the bike somewhere on a wim, I could get one with a day or two notice if I had too.

as for the grip, a blast of air from an air compressor between the bar and grip should do it. the controls are fairly simple. unscrew them and move them to the new bar, rescrew. there should be screws on the underside or back. if you have a nub in the bar section decide if you want to take the nub off or drill into your new bar.

The oil has already drained out on the porch where it's sitting. And the gasket is easy but on the inside of the stator cover there is bolted to it, not sure what it is but it looks important
