Hardware for Race Fairings

I've never put on race fairings before. What will I need to fully install them? Fasteners (how many), mounting brackets, etc...

I'm trying to order everything at once. I appreciate the help from all those with experience at this.

Look at your bodywork to determine the number needed. Look at the mouting holes where the lower meets the upper. Each hole will take a fastener. 6 is a very common amount.

Moody is right, Zip ties are a cheap alternative. But they are a pain when you take your fairing off frequently, and they don't look as good. Dzus is easier and not expensive really.

Nothing else? I don't think the fairings are pre-drilled, but I can just use the stock screws for upper, rear of lower, and rear?

sorry for these elementary questions...like I said, I'm just trying to avoid going to install the fairings and realizing that I need more hardware.

Get a Uni-bit for the drill work, helps a lot but be very careful not to go too deep. I've seen guys rig Dutz on the upper fairing mounts using the rivets keepers on the fairing stay side. . Pretty trick and super fast on and off of the whole kit.

I know when I first heard about this site I thought it was a site.
for my 06 gsxr 6 I bought these below and it was more then enough.

1 x 6pc - Black Dzus Fasteners with Clip on Retainers $18.00
1 x Wellnut Windshield Kit $9.50

Wind screen
Mounting hardware for the windscreen
Mirror block off plates.
You will need two brackets (one left, one right) for the turkey pan to support it at the back. You can use the Dzus for those as well if they fit in the brackets you make.
You might need thermo wrap for the exhaust if it is too close to the turkey pan. You don't want to bulge or warp it with your exhaust.

Don't loose your seat bolts and side cover bolts like I did.
If you do, Cycle gear sells 6MM x 20 THI bolts in packs of three to replace them.
