    Hi all. I'm attempting to reinstall the fairing on my '97 Sporti after a repaint and I'm unable to align the mirror bolt holes with the mounts on the small subframe/instrument carrier. Just eyeballing it, the whole frame assembly appears cockeyed. The support arms that support the fairing and mirrors stick up at different angles and heights, and when sitting on the bike the instrument cluster is at least 1/2 inch off center. Is this just Italian manufacturing "character" or is my instrument holder frame defective? Has anyone who has had their fairing off observed similar alignment issues?

    Hello & Welcome.

    I believe you have something wrong. I also suspect your provided info to be incomplete and inaccurate possibly.

    Was your frame painted or powder coated?

    I have seen lightweight gauge stems on power coated frames that bent from the oven heat (~400 F for ~ 30 minutes) and inadequate supporting during this baking process. Especially if they hung the weight of the frame from one of these little offshoot stems type projections.

    Without some detailed clear photos it is impossible to assist you.

    If it was lined up when it came apart, unless it was manhandled sometime between, then and now, it should be in the same state it started in ?
