Fairing install on 06 GSXR 1000

Just got a set of Auctmart fairings for my bike.

Any advice on the install, pitfalls you've run into, lessons you've learned or any other helpful information would be appreciated.

The top two fairing bolts that are directly under your ram air tubes/vents. Those fairing bolts connect to your ram air tube cover. Don't over tighten them. I guess I over tightened mine because they snapped the mounting tabs that were on the ram air tube covers. This happened OEM fairings.

Don't tighten any bolts till you have it lined up right...Once its on there don't take it off...you don't need to take off the plastics for oil changes..

So switching back to my busted/rashed fairing parts for future TDs isnt advisable?

I switch back and forth between street and race fairings...

I take it these are race? Make sure you get a friend to hold sections up so that you can match the holes, not worth missing an alignment because you thought you could do it yourself.

Check on the types of fasteners to see if you want the dzus or other kind (can't think of name)...if these are race fairings...

nah, just street fairings. I did order a new fastener kit, since I lost most of my old set in a move.

That's going to be a problem. I have found that the Oem bolts work the best

I figured that would cause me a headache or twelve. I'll just have to work around any of those issues best I can. I still have the OEM fasteners holding the nose and tail on, its just the side and belly bolts that were bagged, labelled and neatly stored away...to never be seen again.

Well tell me how this goes for you! I just spent several thousand on OEM Fairings and stubbs to fix everything on mine. And I only replaced about 80% of the left side. I was looking at the Auctmarts kits but didnt pull the trigger on them. After you post pics I bet ill regret not picking some up

As long as I don't completely botch the install, I'll try and post some pics.
I'm not expecting OEM. I'm expecting what I paid for: $600 fairings.
