Question Lower front right fairing

Hi all, I am on the lookout for a front, right, lower fairing. The existing one has quite a large scratch - its in quite an obscure pleace so doesnt ruin the look of the bike really but I would like to get it replaced.

Am i right in saying that the 848 and 1198 would fit to without having to make additional holes etc?

Now, having looked at eBay, I have found some but how do I tell if they are official Dacati parts? Alternatively, does anyone here know of a good breakers who might have some of the parts to flog? I have also considered getting the panel repainted too so what are the costs for this, do you think?

I have asked at the place where I bought the bike and they are quoting me about 200 including VAT which seems a bit excessive.

cheers

Richard

Bradders, yes, it is the bellypan.

I have considered carbon ones although i suspect that these are quite expensive, arent they?

I would probably need to have the original parts for when I sell it anyway, wouldnt I?

not much more than painting or getting a replacemnet probably, and keep the old one anyway and store it. If its just a scratch, not sure it would put anyone off that you then put a carbbon one on...tbh I wouldnt even expect someone to have kept the old one

Ive just noticed that theere is a big crack in the lower radiator cover too. Should i be taking this back to the dealer? What about the 'sold as seen' argument? It is a main dealer, Sycamore, in Rutland so should they be selling expensive bikes with major defaults where used or otherwise.

i feel i bit peeved really.

You can try it, but unless it was picked up Pre delivery it's likely they'll say you did it.

Could you buy a race belly pan? Might be cheaper. Or if the mark isn't that deep could you put a sticker on it?
