Without a doubt, you have purchased the most advanced and sophisticated Deviant Fabrications ZT-FXRD FairingTM of its kind in the motorcycle industry. Light years ahead of competition… second place is far behind. This fairing was designed with performance in mind for the 21st century.
Light-weight using modern materials, aerodynamics (wind tunnel tested) and fit at ZERO - TOLERANCE. What more can you ask for?
It was also designed to fit the biggest speakers on the market without overhanging in stock locations, accommodate modern day electronics (double DIN) in the cockpit, has built in functional large capacity GLOVEBOXES and comes to your laser straight and in gloss black POLYURETHANE primer you can run as is for many years if you choose or scuff and paint.( we DO NOT CHARGE FOR THAT and therefore will NOT be accountable for any surface scratches occurred during shipping ,(USPS IS!).What this means is SAVINGS to you. Because by the time you get your fiberglass shell fairing half of where the ZT- FXRD is you will have easily spend at least 3x as much, fought with you painter twice and are trying to budget for the suspension upgrade required to move your fiberglass fitted heavy fairing bike across the street and even then you won’t have functional glove boxes.
If your bike was built past 1960, fiberglass as it is available to you does not belong on a motorcycle. (there are accepted modern manufacturing ways and not what’s being sold, (NOT even suited for a bathtub… much less a motorcycle… any! Ask your supplier if they say the fairing, they are about to sell you is fiberglass… hang up and RUN!).
Carburetors where GREAT but fuel injection is better! Mechanical evolution…
What you get
Deviant Fabrications ZT-FXRD Fairing MT made of ABS capped POLYCARBONATE and CNC immaculately finished, lowers, windshield and light lens, mounts and brackets, specific to your bike, 7” head light mount, lowers installation kit, sponge film for light lens a bag of push clips for windshield and light lens, also provided 6 wellnuts for ease of LOWER FAIRING installation / removal and anti-vibration of lower mounts (see packing list).
All Deviant Fabrications ZT-FXRD FairingsTM must be installed by qualified professionals or someone comfortable with basic tools (DIY). Must know what they are doing.
One willing to apply a better bracket system than the 80’s to achieved that intended look every time. (headlight pointing to the birds and that dreaded tank-gap NOT an option).
The fairings are designed for a multitude of different motorcycles forks (upright and inverted… Wide and narrow) dimensions and different front wheel sizes.
Although much less than other fairing in the markets final fitting is necessary like any high-end body kit or spoiler, and is the sole responsibility of the installer. This is not a simple master cylinder chrome cover, it’s a fairing… the largest part installed on a motorcycle!.
Fairings installation mechanics /theory
For a fairing to work as a fairing it should be securely mounted on the bike as close to the tank as possible and above the fork, NOT 4’ in front of the motorcycle. A fairing must be able to transfer acquired force of the motorcycle (flimsy unsupported brackets won’t do that!). We have all seen them riding around with that dreaded tank gaps. A properly mounted fairing is fastened in 3 places, main brackets, lower support bracket (usually located in the engine mount area) and two tank mounts aka. Lateral stabilizer. [see attachment 1].
The lower fairing is mounted to the main fairing (top) with the provided wellnuts [see attachment 2] and to the forward control bolt (bottom) by means of adjustable anti - vibration mount provided. [see attachment 3].
Attachment 2 Attachment 3
Yes, this is a DIY kit you will need a trip to the hardware store.
You will need to buy:
5 x hex head bolts with 2 medium sized washers and nylock nut each 5/16”x 3/4” (M8 x 20MM).
4 will be used in the main bracket mount behind the headlight. [see attachment 4].
1 Will be used to mount the lowers support bracket to the engine card hall.
The 6th one will be a spare (nothing like losing a bolt and having to look for it).
You will also need:
10 x hex head bolts with 2 medium sized washers and nylock nut each ¼ x ½” bolts or (M6 x 15MM).
2 will be used to fix the modular bracket in position (holes you have drilled above) [see attachment 5, 6].
4 will be used for mounting the lower support to the fairing.
2 will be used in each lateral support adjustable tank mount (L+R).

Deviant Fabrications supply its ZT- FXRD with a modular brackets system to ensure proper fitment/support.
What is a MODULAR-X- BRACKET system?
In our quest to deliver YOU, the builder a better product. We chose to use a modular-X- bracket with each one of our kits so it is up to the builder where the final position of the fairing lands every time, all the time.
Rake, fork type (inverted or upright), fork length… triple tree width, and customer taste vary between one motorcycle and another. Classic one-piece bracket dictates where you fairing position will be with slight adjustment up and down, making it IMPOSSIBLE to achieve that desired “custom” fitted look you are seeking. After all, it’s not a ONE SIZE fits all type situation. For this we provide each one of our kits with a MODULAR-X- BRACKET system.
That simply means the bracket supplied consists of 2 parts. One goes on the chassis like all others mounting but the other part is mounted to the fairing behind the light. Both parts are a then placed over one another with unlimited possibility to move your fairing into the desired position (Don’t be afraid to ask a loved one to sit on the bike while you step back and confirm fairing position) mark and drill the bracket, to a fixed, permanent fixture position. Perfect fitment at the expense of drilling 2 holes…
Frame Support lower Bracket (See attachment 7, 8, 9, 10).
Like the OEM, your Deviant Fabrications ZT-FXRD FairingTM will be supported from the lower middle, usually to the engine guard mounting area. These brackets have different shapes and sizes and will help
set fairing height. From OEM shaped (touring and FXR to telescopic adjustable 2018+ SOFTAIL).
We will discuss today the Dyna FXDL intended bracket as a conversant guideline.
A carefully selected nut-spacer has been provided with the kit for its shape to fit in the provided slot in the chassis without turning. Place the provided washer/ nut in engine guard hole, put your acquired bolt (the fifth one you got at the hardware store) washers and nut in place (so it will be screw, washer, bracket center hole, spacer nut, engine guard hole, washer, nut) [see attachment 11,12 ] now reach back behind the chassis and torque it all in place.
If your support bracket is a little off, turn it around! Effortlessly bend it into place to meet and support the fairing at flat, if your motorcycle is modified, and the bracket seems either too tall or short raise or lower you fairing accordingly. That is the intended purpose of the modular-X- bracket. (it’s not ONE SIZE fits all if it were freedom of placement/clearance would be very limited).

TANK MOUNTS (NEW!)
For 2021 Your kit included the telescopic lateral adjustable tank mounts.
Those are to be installed last, in the best location YOU will determine (L+R) to get the fairing perfectly dialed in and laterally supported for high-speed aerodynamics (very important). Don’t skip those they will support your fairing from vibrating, (road and engine harmonics) prevent cracking, unify it with the chassis making your fairing work like one instead of being a useless heavy decorative conversation piece.

LOWERS FAIRING MOUNT
How to properly mount the LOWER FAIRING if you chose to run them.
Each said lower fairing will come with a lower fairing mounting kit.
This kit contains:
2x telescopic anti-vibration mount.
4X rubber damper sponges
2x silicone rubber edge trims
Carefully peel and stick the sponges to the lower fairing matting surface
Slide silicone trim over the long edge of the lower fairings.
Push plugs out of corresponding mounting holes in fairing.
Enlarge 3 holes (now 5mm) to 3/8” or 10mm, Place lower fairing against main fairing and tighten all 3 provided wellnuts.
Now for the other side (lower side).
As for the lower, on the fairing side holes have been drilled to guide you.
Place the rubber sponge in between, expand you holes in the fairing and use the well nuts to secure them to the fairing.
You will be left with the other side. Mount the bracket provided to you forward control hole. Now, about and 1” 1/4" up in the middle of the lower drill a hole ½’ OR 13MM for the wellnut provided.
Tighten everything up into your desired position. [see attachment 17,18,19,20,21]
We have provided this bracket to be telescopic for various reasons, if you choose to run floorboards, forward controls or just have a big foot… our exclusive lower mounting angle (unlike the OEM and various cheap fiberglass reproductions) with the use of the adjustable anti-vibration telescopic mount can accommodate for that.

Place the provided seal sponge tape [see attachment 20] on the inside outermost parameter of the light lens.
Provided is a bag of nylon push-clips [see attachment 21], use them to secure the light lens to the 4 holes in the fairing.
You will notice that the provided light lens flows smoothly and aerodynamically once in place without the traditional seal known to break the lines and smooth flow of your fairing.

WINDSHIELD (AIR FOIL TM)
We’ve left the best for last!
Use 6 nylon tabs provided to secure in place. Do not enlarge holes there is no need.
Never before has there been a windshield with as much live windtunel as the AIR FOIL (Circa Rafael DDC 2019).
This not only makes for great conversation but its beautiful discreet lines make it a Windshield-less windshield positioned correctly will not only shelter the tallest of riders in a wind vacuum (laminar flow) will also create 40lbs of down force at 80 mph. adding to the stability and performance of the Deviant Fabrications ZT-FXRD FairingTM.

In the event surface repair is needed plastic welding is recommended, resin, fiberglass, epoxy and silicone based adhesive (Goop) will bond to the Deviant Fabrications ZT-FXRD FairingTM provided that the surface is clean.
This is a professional grade -product! Professionalism is required for installation (SAFETY FIRST!). Remember there is no right or wrong way to skin a cat. We provide GUIDELINES of how we do it.
These guidelines are based on a multitude of customer question over the years for 100’s of fairings sold. It’s ultimately the builder’s responsibility to ensure proper fitment and improvise where needed. If any questions HAVE NOT been addressed, please feel free to contact us, someone will be available to help you. Deviantfabrications@gmail.com
