    Hi folks,

    I've got a set of aftermarket fairings, but the fit is very poor (plastic welded mounts rather than injection molding). I'm pushing for a refund, and the seller is asking what it would cost to the mounts repaired.

    Is there anyone around who can do this? If so, do you have a rough idea on the price?

    Maybe Paul at Redback - but it'll end up costing more than the fairings I suspect. Doesn't take much in labour to get to a price higher than the aftermarket fairings go for.

    Going to need a few extra mounts for the upper fairing stay too. Looks like your new one is two short. In my experience even well made aftermarket upper fairings are a bitch to install, I wouldn't expect much joy with the one you've got. Did you get my PM?

    you would only fix them yourself as paying someone or a shop would be unfeasible .
    By looks of the 3rd photo and fitment, you would be better of fixing the old fairing by chopping up the new one.

    Thanks for the advice folks, my intent is to get a full refund from the seller. I've pinged Paul from Redback with the pics and asked for a quote, I hope he doesn't waste too much time on it, I just need to report it back to the vendor.

    I did have a really good experience with aftermarket fairings for my MC19, went straight on without any issues, and all the mounts were moulded rather than welded on. I guess that lowered my guard *sigh*.

    Has anyone had experience with AuFairings? I've asked for pics so I can confirm whether the mounts are moulded or welded.

    Razorblade: Yup, the bank angle sensor mounts are missing, odd, as I would not have thought the '09 CBR1000RR would ever have been manufactured without one. Who knows what else is missing.

    Gazman: while I can do that, I was really hoping to avoid that. My 600RR is laid up waiting for paint after I've repaired the fairings, and the paint is blocked on me learning how to airbrush well enough to get my flames down. Might be a Xmas project.

    Ok, got a rough price back from Redback that I can beat the vendor over the head with. Hopefully they will give a refund.

    Yeah it's a joke with some aftermarket fairing places and them wanting quotes to rectify stuff; no amount of money makes a silk purse from a sow's ear.

    Did you buy them in Aus?

    If so, consumer reports laws essentially say they have to refund you if the product faulty or "not fit for purpose".... Vendor can't get out of that....
