    I can appreciate the skepticism, it's totally warranted and I didn't know if advertising would even be allowed here. There are many more noble causes to be sure, I only ask because I support my family with my paycheck and any extra money tends to go towards projects around the house or my kids. I want my bike running more than anything but can't personally justify sacrificing a potential opportunity for my wife and children. Thank you very much TIMMYDUCK for donating and for anyone else that might consider. Even just sharing can help out.

    Sucks glad ya got it back what's all going on with the wiring? Seen a few guys share diagrams to repair whatever they were trying to accomplish with their meth filled minds.

    With a budget or no budget I would go that route. Also can always find cheap sets of plastic on eBay. Same with ignitions the 3 piece sets are not real cheap but you can eliminate rear fender one or use a second key.

    I just throw that out there as I see the go fund me and I have the same feelings as everyone else on here from :confused: to :crazy: to :thumbsup:. But when asking for help I'd be looking to take every cheep way possible.

    It looks like they cut up a bunch of the harness that has to do with the ignition. I'm not even sure they used the original Hayabusa ignition switch, they also cut up the front harness to connect it again. The goal was to return it to its original state but if all else fails I will have to bandaid things myself i guess. I looked on ebay for complete fairing kits and saw some for about $400 but then you have to pay for overseas shipping. I am all ears for local solutions however.

    What's with the it needs to be OEM? Here is a exaple of an$40 ignition set. It Chinese crap but isn't any worse than a beat up 17 year old one. If your motor blew up you wouldn't drop OEM pistons in it.

    This might be where people think I'm looking at it wrong. Your asking for $$ and spending it in a way that I don't think is right. If you were willing to buy cheep stuff to get your bike back together and create that bonding with your daughters I believe people would be happy to donate much more.

    If you want a cheep Chinese lock set pm me your address and I'll order you one.

    Also a guy is buying a blow up one for parts on here did he offer you a good deal on anything you need.

    Thank you for the suggestion, but if the OEM lasted 17 years why wouldn't I justify the price. I am open to suggestion regarding parts, I haven't been contacted personally by anyone with parts to spare. I'm not trying to jack anyone around, if you don't feel like a donation is warranted that is totally fine but it's starting to feel like you have made it a personal mission to discredit what I'm trying to do. I'm not made of money, no one is but if there is a way to get this done this year instead of next then I'm going to try.

    Does anyone have experience with aftermarket fairing kits? I think I found a good deal on replacements but they include a "tank cover". Do they sit on top of the gas tank? I didn't think you could separate the tank from the cover.

    Yes, the tank cover sits on the Top of your tank.

    Have you seen one installed? Dose it look like a cover or do they generally look like the original tank?
