Align both sides of the tail unit with the end cap. Bolt them down at the rear of the panels with two Phillips-head self-tapping screws and nylon washers. This will hold the panels in place while you locate the rest of the rivets and screws.

image33 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Slide the tail unit tabs underneath the plastic undertray. Attach them with push rivets. Use a flat-sided tool such as a screwdriver to push the rivets into place.

image34 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

image35 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kitIt can be useful to get an extra pair of hands to hold the two tail panels together while you secure them with the first push rivet. The second rivet should be easier to get in.

image36 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Fix the panels to the bracket underneath the pillion seat with two self-tapping screws and nylon washers.

image37 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Insert two self-tapping screws and nylon washers at the front end of the tail panels.

image38 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Use two bolts with penny washers in the holes next to the battery tray to secure the panels under the seat.

image39 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Fit two capture nuts to the underside of the nose fairing, below the headlight gaps.

image40 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Fit two capture nuts to the inside of the nose fairing.

image41 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Insert one headlight into the nose cone.

image42 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Insert four small self-tapping screws into the lugs around the outside of the headlight.

image43 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Insert a self tapping screw through the first chimney nut you installed at the front of the nose cone, on the side of the headlight you just installed. Repeat steps 9-12 for the other headlight.

image43 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

It’s easier to install the screen before you put the nose cone on the bike. Locate all of the rub nuts and insert your screen bolts with nylon washers. Tap them in gently at first, then hand-tighten all of the bolts.

Put a capture nut on the headlight mount bracket before situating the nose cone.

image45 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

image46 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Insert the bolts for your blanking plates or insert your mirrors to hold the nose cone in place. (If you’re fitting mirrors, locate the bracket on the underside of the fairing before bolting the mirror into place).

image51 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Attach the two upper belly panels together with push rivets. You’ll need 2 push rivets for the bottom of the panels, and one for the top. You may need to drill out the top rivet hole to get a better fit before inserting your rivet.

image67 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Attach the two topmost fairing bolts, ensuring you use nylon washers.

image68 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Screw a self-tapping bolt through the panel on the bottom corner of the boomerang panel.

Fit the lower belly panel into the upper panel as shown in the image below.

image71 fitting the YZFR125 fairing kit

Insert small, self-tapping screws into the tank fairing. Be sure not to screw these in too tightly, as they can break through the finish and damage the tank. Tighten only until they seat gently.

Slide the two halves of the tank fairing together and insert the remaining self-tapping screws.
