Fairing Vents

Post by Strange1800GL »



I see several Vents hole intakes on the front fairing, I know 4 go to the vents on the inner fairing and the lower fairing, two to flow the radiator, but what does the vent center just above the headlight do ??

Good question ... but it's just for cosmetics.

Isn't that where you are supposed to install the machine guns?

Thank for the replay, I so wanted to use the hole to see where it went, but was worried it may be a fresh air shoot to the Air box, figured I ask first

This year I put foam in mine to keep the bugs from collecting inside the speaker grills. It kinda worked.


It's not what you buy, it's what you build.
