Minor repairs to fairing.

Minor repairs to fairing.

Hey folks,


Anyone recommend somewhere in the Midlands to get some cracked fairing repaired. Long story short, came into a series of bends behind a car about four car lengths back (not at great speed by the way), committed to a line, only to find a large snot of muck on the road exactly on my line when the car passed over it. Oncoming traffic so couldn’t safely get inside the muck so opted to go outside. Managed to get around it but ended up running wide on to soft margin and down we went. No injuries to me and really ended up just being a bit more than a slow speed tip over but cracked the fairing in a few places. Chalk it all down to a cheap lesson. Nothing too serious but annoying none the less. Just trying to decide what’s the best way to go about repairing it.

Supercorsa SP in the wet

Category : General Bike Chat

Supercorsa SP in the wet

Lads I’m going over to collect a low mileage 2012 Speed Triple R.

It’s got 4700 miles on it, always stored indoors, off the road for 2 years, and I’m pretty sure it’s on original tyres which at this stage must be passed their shelf life! Pirelli Supercorsa SPs

I’ve never rode a bike with sportier tyres like these in the wet.

I’m planning to get set of Pilot 5’s fitted when I get back… if the weathers shit on the ride back should I try get em changed over there before the spin?

Or just take it handy til I get back and get em sorted here.

Obviously I’ll use my judgement when I get a look at them in person but just wondering how bad those specific tyres are in the wet as there’s not much of a tread pattern on them.

If it’s dodgy I wanna make sure a local tyre place has suitable tyres in stock.

Cheers :thumbsup2:
