Fix for bad Frame Slider Holes

I've been looking around for new fairings, the PO got a little zealous cutting out the circles for the frame sliders. One side was about 1/2" to big and one side was even worse. I cut these out of 1/8" black PVC. Not perfect but certainly look better than what I had and seal up the sliders nicely with a more factory look. What do you guys think?

Looks good man, I wouldn't have thought of doing it that way.

Thanks man, thought I would share a cheap fix that doesn't look like total crap. Actually stiffens up the fairings just a tad where they were cut too.

Hey that works. The shape kinda mimics flush mounts, if you have those.

It was the minimal shape to hide all of the PO miss-cuts and such...

Anytime you can come up with a simple and good looking fix for someone else's screw up, I say attaboy.

At first I looked at just the pic of the PVC cutouts, thought they were Oakley decals.

I wonder if the PO cut them out that way to get the fairings on and off easier.
