though italian red is not just 03, i have oem fairings and my front is also italian red in my sig, thats what italian red is like
what you mean about the screw at the start though? need a part number?
Thing is, i'm not entirely sure if it is R157. The colour code sticker on my CBR says R157 but the colour of my new fairing looks EXACTLY the same as your R157 red.
The rest of the body work on my 600RR is a deeper and more vibrant red, think of flourescent colours, it's that kind of 'stand out' red. I'm clueless about what to do on the whole situation now really.
I'll have to wait for my nose cone and throttle fairing to come back so I can compare them and work out what i'll do. Suprisingly, i'm not too angry, yet. :)
The little screw was for my tail light, the thread was knackered and just kept spinning round. Needed to replace it which took a while to source a part, I had 2 different companies send 2 wrong items that were claimed were the right part.
Found a exploded diagram on this forum (what a suprise) that gave me the actual part number and sourced it from the local Honda dealer. It's called a "Visor screw setting" bit of a weird name as it just holds a bracket in place, but it's all good now!
