HD to Bolt Chin Fairings
« on: November 20, 2021, 01:43:47 pm »
So after waiting for the raven black chin fairing for the C spec to come back in stock Iíve been informed that as of 2021 Yamaha has discontinued the part.. so my only option now as far as made-to-order chin fairings go is the one from low and mean. But to be honest Iím not a huge fan of it.

Anyone know if there are any chin fairings from other models like Harleys or even elsewhere in Yamahaís lineup that can pretty easily be fitted to the Bolt with a bit of clever bracketry? Iím looking all over Amazon and those cheap 30 dollar plastic bits for the Sportster and Dyna are really tempting compared to the 230 dollar plastic bit from low and mean.

If youíve attached a chin fairing to your bike Iíd love to see pics and a how to for what you used to do it.

Currently riding a Bolt R spec, have fit other HD aftermarket parts on it already including a headlight quarter fairing for the Dyna. But the frame for the chin fairing is a very different shape so Iím not sure what would be compatible.

You can usually find the green or silver Yamaha chin fairings available online, and then just paint it black to match your bike. This is what I did last Summer and it turned out great.

My computer designed CHIN - 10 gage steel - paint it RED
we have a PLASMA Table cutter and PRESS BRAKE to bend to an Angle as shown in drawing
HOW to attach it - i have pondered a few ways, i do NOT want to drill thru my BOLT Bike Frame Pipe - i could tack weld on
square tabs 1 x 1 with a hole in the middle - then on CHIN tack weld a BOLT to feed thru these 4 TABS added to BOLT Frame ?
REMOVABLE Chin so i can remove my Oil Filter

E - I made a similar skid plate, check out this thread.  I used the hoseclamps mentioned in it to mount. Easy to remove.
