Fairings Coming Apart ???

Has anyone else had any problems with the fairings coming apart ??

Between the yellow lines in the pic ??

Mine do it continually and one of them has just cracked...

Dunno if it makes any difference but its an '05'

I have a problem keeping the lower and the mid together on the left side of the bike. Everything is matched correctly and installed correctly there is just a little gap.

I think it's normal to have a little gap, but not cracking. What's cracked?? the tabs?

Yeah one of the tabs has started to crack...

I hav'nt ever dropped the bike or removed any of the fairing brackets etc so...

I just want it to stop cracking further but im unable to get the fairings to stay joined correctly on either side they just keep faiing down 'or' popping out.

I wheelie but doesnt everyone and i dont genrally bring the front down hard...

I can't see the pic just a red X but if it's where I'm thinking yeah my 05' lower to mid seperates all the time on both sides and I have to push it a bit to get it to snap back into place. sort of bugs me cuz it happens every time I ride it.

well if its cracked and you are still in warranty just go get it replaced....sounds like they didnt get it together right the first time. i had a problem with the rubber grommets striping out of their holes when i first got mine(03). the plastic shouldnt crack...its pretty tough.

Thanks for the advise everyone, i have already brought it to the attension of the bike shop becase it is under warranty.

In going to clip it back together one more time then if it fails ill be in there for them to fix it.
