Chin faring help please !!
« on: Nov 12, 2012, 02:10:04 PM »
Hay guys I've been looking at getting the L&M chin faring but when I look it installed on other Raiders it looks like it doesn't fit right. It looks as if its leaning forward at the top and not sitting flush in between the down tubes. I've seen this with and without the little bracket that connects the down tubes . Does anyone no if  L&M have corrected this ?

I understand was made for the warrior not the Raider . Seems to me they could make one for the Raider and not thats just acceptable.   We wouldn't accept that from other companys . 
  I like the idea but not really proper fit  Also wire ties to hold the bottom. Then cost  $200 + come on.

Not flush at the top but I still think it looks great. If it stuck out at the bottom and was not flush there it would look like crap but fortunately, it does not do that.  Here is a close up shot of mine.

looks to me like the tie-wrapps are on too tight undeneath... thats why its pulling away on the top

Looks like it is molded with a curve in it.  Needs to be straight with the down tubes...

I was all hot to get one until I saw the installation instructions and it was using zip ties for mounting... Decided to pass....

Good Luck!

This a great add on looks awesome and there is nothing wrong with the Zip ties to hold bottom in place it is held with two bolts on your frame in center zip ties are just on the bottom and you do not see them at all

Wasn't about seeing  them..  Didn't want the zip ties breaking loose and having the fairing rattling around.  Zip ties do not have the longest lifespan here in the heat.. 

I agree that it is a relly good looking add-on.

it is on to stay with the two bolts not going to be flipping around any plus you have to put new zip ties on every oil change because you neet to get at the oil filter. They are not tightly pulled so they should not break it just keeps the fairing in at the bottom. I have had mine on three yrs and had no problems.
