Due to unfortunate events, I'm replacing the right side plastic on my Green Meany. Should I spend the money on the black foam rubber pads that come stock inside the fairings? I don't even know for sure what the hell they are for. Gotta be sound deadening or vibration deadening I reckon. I replaced my left side plastic two years ago and left the pads off with no noticeable effects. What's up with these pads fellers?

The plastic knife thing sounds cheap and easy. I tried to peel them off but it started to tear. Still not sure what the padding does though.

I replaced the left side fairing and did not realize that the padding did not come with it when I ordered it, consequently it went on without it and I haven't noticed any vibration or increased heat. I'd say FORGEDABOUTIT!!!

dealer told me it was for heat insulation, keeps the paint on the ext of panel from peeling,bubbling, etc....

though I did not notice any problems with them missing on
my old green bike ( before incident )

heck, it even saves you some weight , when they are missing..

CR I was just gonna say the same thing. No padding on my 02.

Next question? Would be--But the 02 do'es have two fan's,

I felt about the same amount of heat as I did on the 01. As I do on the 02. There's not much of a temp difference between the two. Ninja Dude's fan seem to kick on more than mine. But run about same temp.

I would'nt put em back on.



If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

Hmmm. Guess I'll leave them off for now and see how it works out.
