Yeppers I thought enlarging the needed holes also and once I have it where I like it then if needing I'll just drill a new plate. I have it all off today and I am putting the stock rises back on and look the fit over again, so You will get pic's tonight CSS
PS: It looks so good doesn't it

I reinstalled the stock riser and the fairing went back on using the same holes in the bracket. If I want to move the fairing back and lower I might have to cut into the fairing. My next mockup is going to be without handle bars on the bike and see how it will fit (I have to try every which way but loose LOL). I'm sure it will be back to the 4" risers and snug it down, I really liked the feel.
OEM


4" Risers


But they both use the same holes on the brackets

It is also important that the fairing lay back enough for high speed stability, many have complained of high speed wobble that was corrected by laying it back further.

I'm going to mockup with no handlebars and risers, and go for a tight fit. With the risers I have, I fear I will need to modify the faring to get a proper fit. Question: Has anyone come up with an angle for the faring increasing stability? My guesstament would be some where low enough to provide clean air for My helmet yet high enough I can tuck behind it with comfort.

Ok for You guy's and gal's waiting for an answer on risers. It did not matter if I used the stock riser or 4" risers the faring fit the same. with the risers removed the faring fit very tight and I could get the angle very close to the fork angle, but (that nasty but) the faring would have to be notched or a hole under the head unit slot to fit that snug and have any kind of riser. I am not going to cut yet cuz I still need to get the bike on it wheels and see what it looks like. The faring was made to fit with out cutting, and looking at the pic's at Reckless it is where it is designed to fit and bolts right up no modifications. 4 bolts and it comes off and the stock windshield goes back on . I had to reroute cables from the front of the forks to the rear for the 4" risers but no biggie.

Nice fairing Ezlivin! What brand of headlights you running? You can almost not tell they are there since they are black. Real nice!
