Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Bent front sub-frame, "S" model

Post by The_Wasp on Mon 22 Sep 2014, 9:23 pm

Hi all,

after my spill in North Wales the other week I have had my front fairings repaired (as good as they could be any way) and resprayed but have hit trouble when coming to refit them. It seems my front sub-frame that holds the fairings and clocks in place was bent quite a bit out of shape in the impact and now I cannot get the fairings back on.

It has some degree of twist in all 3 axes and I have had little success in getting it straight again. I'd like to know if there is any way to realign the frame so I can remount my fairings or am I stuffed?

I don't like paying out for unnecessary items and the cost of a new frame is around £250 if bought in the UK. Bike Parts Honda (French) does have a frame in stock for a discounted price that equals just about £100 with shipping included:

If I cannot straighten this frame that is my only option aside from a 2nd hand frame, of which there few about.

Cheers Smile

Heat & a hammer could work if you know what final shape you're after.

Failing that, 2nd hand bits from eBay etc is probably your cheapest option.

I've just gone and ordered this one:

It seems to be the best of the current crop of parts on eBay and looks a damn sight straighter than mine.
