Tsukayu Fairings

Does anyone use or have ever used the Tsukayu Fairing? They look super nice. I was planning on purchasing a Memphis Shade batwing fairing but I noticed these are a bit more money but have sound already built in.

I recently installed one of their BW's and love it. I stall have to tweak the shims and mounts a bit to better fit my liking but overall it's been a good purchase.

Below are links to the images I have posted:

Is there a big gap over the headlight? What do you mean tweak does it not sit very well?

In the top picture you can see a decent sized gap in above the headlight.

When I installed it it was getting late and I was running out of daylight. I was more focused on getting it installed and functional. I have to go back and adjust the provided shims so that it is better centered on the headlight. In addition ther is an small amount of angle adjustment that can be done on the mounts that will help close the gap above the headlight.

I am hoping to get to it this weekend as I have to replace my brake pads for the state inspection anyways.

As long as you properly select your year/make/model on ordering you will get the mounting system with the fairing. The instructions are not the greatest tho. The main item that I had a slight difficulty figuring out was the top bracket for the mount. The instructions point to the holes in the bracket and say "handle bar bolts." It did not state if it was to mount on the top of the fork cross bar or underneath. It's underneath in case you were wondering.

When I do get a chance to do my adjustments I will have to remove the fairing to redo the shims. I plan on taking pictures of the mounting system and posting it to aid anyone else that is looking at this option.

maybe its just the optics ... or my eyes, but the headlight opening does not look wide enough for the fairing to sit far enough down.

As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said

It's the angle the picture was taken. There is about 1/4" on one side (right) and 1/2" on the other (left). This is part of the fine tuning I am hoping to do this weekend to better center the fairing on the light and angle it sits at. All are adjustments built into the provided mounting system.

Is yours the one with the included stereo equipment or did you add your own? How does it sounds on the highway?

It came with the radio, speakers and wiring pre-installed. At low speeds it sounds real good. If I use the SDHC slot or Aux port and play MP3's I can hear the music at speeds up to 65 with little issue. The radio seems lower in actual volume even tho the settings are the same so at higher speeds the radio is harder to hear. I am satisfied with it so far.

WARNING: I ordered mine the weekend before Bike Week in Daytona. I took them just over 3 months to get it to me. It arrived the week after Memorial Day. They claimed it was due to Bike week delaying production. It shipped from hong Kong so I am skeptical about that excuse. But it is here now and I am happy.

do you have any plans to paint the fairing and bag to match the factory two-tone color scheme?

I've wrestled with this myself, with bags and a trunk. It's about the same price to do those accessories in a two tone as it is to paint the whole bike a solid color!
