I recently bought some new fairing from China. When trying to fit the headlight to the front centre cowl, it appears that the holes for the screws are too small by a fraction. Also, in the old cowl, they have a metal fitting into which the screws are seated.
Is my new fairing a dud, or am I expected to cut my own thread into the molding?
Or should I buy some new of these metal fittings, and when they arrive, they'll actually fit and make it work by magic?
The Old Cowl
- Notice the metal inner to where the screws are seated
The New Cowl
- No metal inner, and a fraction too small
