Race Fairing Stay
« on: March 14, 2018, 01:20:10 AM »

Do most people here at PRE use aftermarket fairing stays or their stock unit? Is Vortex or Yoyodyne a good choice?

Hey PawPaw!

I think most people use their stock stays until they're forced to use something else - ie if/when the stock stay has an issue as a result of an off. Some people have had good luck buying cheap OEM stays off eBay while others go with replacement aluminum versions.

When I needed to replace the fairing stay on my Triumph I used Motoholders and it worked out great. I have no experience with the Vortex or Yoyo versions though - sorry.

The benefit of an aluminum version is if you go down and they're impacted they typical bend and can be put back to shape (sometimes takes a little heat - depending on how extensive the off).

Good luck!

I just use the stock stuff and replace it with the stock stuff. I get the cheap Chinese ones off of Amazon for $30 and modify it to get rid of the tabs and unnecessary bits...... But that's just me. I did use the Vortex fairing stay once. It was well made and a nice piece..... It wadded up just like the stock ones, but when I crash I do it correctly.

I recently had to replace my airing stay and went back to OEM. I actually ordered mine new from Yamaha. It was surprisingly affordable through Ron Ayers Motorsports. I’ve ordered a number of OEM parts through the site. But I don’t get the OEM pricing though some items are inexpensive and some are really expensive. The tinted sticker for the wind screen costs almost as much as the fairing stay.... yet I digress LOL

But as others mentioned, an aluminum one should be more of a reusable item after a crash.
