Check Out My Auctmarts Fairings Installation (2008 CBR600RR)

Hello I would like to give an update of how my Auctmart fairings installation will go. I plan on documenting everything on this thread as soon as I get the fairings.

As of 2/05/2016 I ordered my fairings through Auctmarts as a custom paint job. I contacted them through email and sent the picture of what I would like my fairings to look like. They said that was possible and they were having a sale for $379.99 for a full kit so I ordered it through a Paypal request that they sent me.

As of 2/25/2016 - I ordered my fairings through Auctmarts on as a custom paint job. I contacted them through email and sent the picture of what I would like my fairings to look like. They said that was possible and they were having a sale for $379.99 for a full kit so I ordered it through a Paypal request that they sent me.

As of 2/24/2016 (19 days later) I finally got a confirmation picture of the fairings I ordered (completed). They asked me to verify that everything was the way I wanted it. Auctmats said I would get shipping confirmation soon. (or so I thought)

As of 3/10/2016 I was sent a tracking number for my fairings!!! YES!!!! FINALLY BEING SHIPPED!!!!


As of 3/14/2016 THE FAIRINGS ARE HERE! It's about time. So excited to get started.

(Bolt Kit) I ordered a complete fairing bolt kit (Screw Head color Flat Black) from BikeBolts. They were a little pricey totaling to 65.97. HOWEVER, this kit includes the screws, washers, speed nuts (as required), well nuts (as required), lock nuts (as required), and push pin rivets (as required) to install the fairings. As well as instructions for installation of hardware. Total quantity of parts included in the kit is 161 pieces. NOTE: I search for a promo code and found this code for 25% off: 4forum20. This deducted $16.49 from my total and out the door I paid 54.02 including shipping. You cant beat the price. Great quality and instructions. Order at BIKEBOLTS, The motorcycle fastener source


WARNING: THESE BOLTS ARE NOT PERFECT FIT AND WILL NOT COME WITH THE CORRECT COWL NUT SETTINGS REQUIRED FOR HONDA! to be successful you will NEED to transfer as much of the old hardware as possible. This was not possible for me be because the person who owned this bike before me switched to really low quality hardware and basically replaced EVERY good bolt on this bike with ones that kinda-sorta fit.

You would think they wouldn't put the fairings on a hard and dirty floor but hey, as long as you receive them in 100% condition, that is all that matters! They look sweet! Keep your bike out of the sun to maintain that deep reflection!

Taking a while to install. NOTE: The Complete bolt kit from Bikebolts is NOT perfect and wont replace all the special bolts that Honda requires. I went ahead and bought some genuine Honda bolts and Cowel Nut Settings. for the gas tank and Middle Farings.

Here is some progress pictures! It will be done by the end of this week!

Here is a picture of the middle cowel pieced together (took me about 20-30 min for each)

After/ Starting to come together

Thanks for the thread, I'll be ordering mine soon and it's sad to hear even the bike bolts kit doesn't fit exactly! How much cutting or "modification" of the fairings did you have to do?

Great question! I had to order some OEM bolts which ended up only costing about $25 for the parts I was missing (little rubber grommets and specialty bolts) Also Auctmarks sent me a bolt kit for free so I used a mixture of Auctmarts, Bikebolts, and OEM bolts. In my opinion, I would use as much of the OEM bolts as possible. I shinned all the OEM bolts with some metal polish using my dremel kit.

As far as cutting or modification, your best friend will be a dremel kit. The only thing I had to do was reopen a few of the pre-cut holes that had a thin layer of hardened paint over them.

Also, for the passenger seat cowel hardware, I needed to widen the pre-cut holes. Not too much modification. Just widening holes (which most of us are used to doing haha)

are you saying that you got the fairings 4 days after you got a tracking number? that it took only 4 days to get to your front door from China? just trying to understand because i got my tracking number last thursday and it sat in Hong Kong for 4 day alone...
