I took my rr apart so I could do the air box mod and replace the factory filter with the BMC race filter...Well everything is back together, but the tank fairing will not fit properly...Ive tried many methods that I have searched on this forum, but none are working.
1) Ive tried taking the cap off and mounting the fairing and then replacing the cap.
2) Ive put grease on the seal and tried shifting the fairing back and forth
3) Ive put tape on the inside seal and tried putting the fairing on and then removing the tape
ALL the above ended up in the same situation and its starting to frustrate me pretty bad. The tank will just not fit properly on the seal. The back (closer to the seat) is fitted correctly, but the top (near the handlebars) it is not flush with the tank cap. Its about 1/4" gap and I can not get it to go down.
Since thats that mounting right, my two upper fairings are not snapping in to the tank and causing a gap and its driving me nuts!
Please someone help bc I take this bish to Honda.
Here are the pics:
Notice the Gap?
Hard to tell, but the upper fairing will not snap in completely and stay attached to tank fairing...Pic shows gap where they meet
