Tsukayu Fairing

For someone that has one, can you post the exact measurement between the fork mounts? See 2.E.4

Thanks. I spoke to Tsukayu and frankly, the guy wasn't much help. He said he would sell me the brackets alone so I can give them to my buddy so he can modify them to work with my Yamaha factory QR windshield mount. If he's successful, I'll get the fairing less the brackets. I'm not overly worried about what my buddy needs to do but if the width won't work, it can't be done. When you're looking at it, let me know the min/max. The guy said something about different spacers. Thanks again. This a great help.

Matt,

I just checked out your pics. Your bike loks great. Did you buy the fairing without the sound system? I thought I saw an amp. If this is the case, was it very hard? I think I'd like to duplicate what you did.

check out this thread from when I went thur my install.....  The install kit came with different size spacers ( guess for different bikes??) to adjust the width, I just put the fork clamps on, squared the up and put the fairing on loose and then just adjusted to eye, It probley isnt 100% true, but It looks bad azz...

And thanks for the comments.. Cant take full credit I kinda copied " spreston " bike.. I really liked his setup on the fairing...  I plan to get some bags one day, I just got done installing the intergrated taillight and next going to lower my bike, then want to chrome the rims.. so bags yeah... one day...

As far as Tsukayu, I have nothing but good things to say for them, I was contacted by a Jason? from them ; I was missing a spacer I needed and needed more of the gasket material after having to paint It twice, and They took really good care of me.  I just wish they had parts availble on their web site for order...( just in case)
