I have lost my left fairing pocket to my '02 1800. I've hardly used it so it's not absolutely necessary that I replace the pocket. However, without the pocket, I cannot secure the pocket door.

Does anyone have a sugeestion as to how I may handle this?

Thanks in advance for all responses.

Happy Motoring!
Tom

left fairing pocket

hey Tom you might as well replace fairing pocket no way to keep door closed without it. Unless you just want to tape it closed.

If you take the springs off the hinges it will stay closed.

Tom,
You might try drilling a hole in the cover and the fairing and looping a chunk of heavy chain thru the holes and put a big ole padlock on the chain. Seems to work for a bunch of cars around here... :lol:

I've just got to ask Tom. How do you lose a fairing pocket?

I don't think new ones are that expensive. The pins will probably cost as much as the pocket. :(

Good Luck.....

I guess a very slow barrel roll might do it?

Ya beat me to the question Red. Inquiring minds want to know.

I have seen some strange stuff on this board, but that one gets the brass ring. :roll: :lol: :lol:

I wonder if we will get an explanation. :?: :lol: I am sure he has one. Has to be an interesting tale.

Ride safe all.
