where to get help making brackets ...

Being completely mechanically inept ... where could I go to have some one fab for me some brackets so I can mount aftermarket fairings that were ment for a gen1 SV on a gen2 SV?

Simplest way is to go to Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Tractor Supply, etc., and pick up some flat aluminum strap. Cut, bend, drill to fit.

You can either rivet, screw, or dzus fasten the fairings to the brackets.

You can also make them out of steel, but add extra weight.

I think you missed the part about me being totally inept. Unless you're volunteering to come over and help make sure I don't drill a hole in my hand.

Aluminum scrap metal can be bent using pliers or a vise w rubber mallets and cut with almost any metal blade easily... and the aluminium wouldn't rust.

You could put thin layers of rubber washers to prevent noise and vibrations between the holes...

It would be a maticulous project but you would find it gratifying in the end...

We can do it.
So you actually prefer the look of the 1st gen over the 2nd gen?

hey romeo...is this what the 929 bodywork was mounted to?

cuz logan, if you want some inexpensive crunchy 929 sharkskinz that are ready to mount up to an sv of some sort, i have some.

EDIT: Nevermind, you are trying to mount 1st gen on 2nd gen. I should read.

Hmmm let me see what my time looks like the next couple weeks.. you're buying lunch tho.

Would be better if you could get the bike and parts to me, since I have tools and such...

Then you have to think about if you want it to be quick release or nuts and bolts.

I like the gen 1 over gen 2 myself.
But yeah you should be able to fab something up without too much trouble. If its your first time working on I might suggest steel cause aluminum can crack where you bend it.
But you know, there is no way youre ever gonna get any mechanical aptitude unless you just get your hands dirty on something. This sounds like a good time to start.

Actually I found some really cool aftermarket street fairings for the first gen that I would like to put on mine. I don't like the standard 1st gen body work at all, but for some reason the really cool stuff is only made for the 1st gen frame.
