I really like the top cover. Its nice to access that area when the Bazzaz is in there without having to take the seat off. The CBR250R we used to race, you had to take every piece of bodywork off to get the seat off, just to get the tail off.

Calling my supplier now to check why I didnt get the 2 piece design

Maybe they'll send one out now. How long back did you buy this? I ordered 3 weeks back and all were backordered...so I wanted a week for it to ship out

Thanks for sharing the pics btw

I ordered mine on the 16th, but they didn't ship out for a while because I made a big order and some of the stuff was on back order. The bodywork wasn't backordered as far as I know. Just a rear stand and clip-ons.

Got in touch with Anthony @Bauce Racing

Bought the Woodcraft key eliminator harness and 41mm 1.5inch riser clip-ons. Also, Armor Bodies has a new design on the rear tail which I didnt get. Current design is one-piece and is total crap for mounting. New design is a 2-piece design that'll mount up a lot easier. I'll get a good deal on that eventually.

Pics of all fairings mounted up. I still need to trim the lower fairings a bit.

Took it for a quick test ride around the block and the brakes felt great. Too bad I didnt tighten the left clip-on....almost crashed as bars moved forward, lol. Thats fixed now, but it left me wondering what else I didnt tighten

Here's some pics

It is a good idea to go through and check anything you loosened or took off to make sure they are tight. Just make it a habit. Or else get a marking pen and mark the bolts you have already tightened. You will just have to clean off the old marks when taking the bolts out again.

This is why you have marks on most bolts on the bike. It was to show they had been tightened to specs. Or in most cases so far with this bike, over specs.

Yup, went and bought the marker yesterday...will go through all the bolts tomorrow

Thx for the recommendation.

I'm just so used to taking apart my R6 that its become second nature on that bike over the last 7 years. The R3 is still new to me, so I dont know where all the bolts/nuts go. Will take some time getting into a habit for this bike.
