1. Use the Parts Checklist included with your hardware to verify the contents of the box 2. Remove the front wheel, fender, forks and triple clamps as shown in the Honda Shop Manual. Torque head bearings to 30 ft-lb. 3. Replace the stock fork caps using new seals with the extended caps provided. If you do not already have Progressive fork springs we suggest they be installed for the best results. 4. Install the new triple clamps. Remember to grease the new lower steering bearing. 5. Install the forks into the new triple clamps. Be sure to torque all pinch bolts to factory specifications. Do not over tighten as this can cause undue stress on the new triple clamps. 6. Check the steering lock action by turning the forks fully in both directions. Because of manufacturing tolerances in the fairing mounting bracket the fork tubes sometimes make contact with it at full lock. Usually this can be overcome by giving the handlebar a slight push while engaging the lock. 7. Because the fork tubes are now longer than stock, DO NOT use the clamps that held the brake lines to the stock lower triple clamp. Some models have a temperature sensor mounted under the fairing that may interfere with the plastic cable guide. If interference is noted trim the guide as required. 8. Install the fender and wheel assembly. Be sure the brake hoses are routed to allow full travel of the forks. It is necessary to trim the two upper ears off of the fender upper cover to prevent contact with the fairing during turns. 9. If you have questions please call our EZ-Steer Maintenance The bearings in your EZ-Steer rake kit are normal wear items, not subject to replacement under Champion’s one year Limited Warranty for the product. Failure to follow your motorcycle manufacturer’s recommendations for periodic OEM triple-tree maintenance will accelerate the wear on these bearings.

Laminar LaMini Fairing Mounting Instructions

Mounting Instructions for the Laminar LaMini Fairing The Laminar LaMini Fairing is designed to mount onto motorcycles having up to 7 inch round headlights and traditional instruments. It is attached to the motorcycle with four clamps, two on each fork tube between the triple clamps. If you plan to paint the fairing be sure to fit it first. Make sure that the front turn signals do not obstruct installation of the
LaMini Fairing. If the turn signals are located between the triple clamps relocating or replacing the turn signals may be desired. When fitting the fairing the greatest potential for damage to your motorcycle lies with the clamps or the back ends of the fairing touching the gas tank when the steering is turned to lock. Monitor this possibility each time the handlebars are turned until installation is completed, padding the front of the tank with some towels is a good idea. Let’s get started 1) Attach the shield to the rear side of the fairing with rubber washers between them, using nylon fasteners. Wrap two clamp gaskets around each fork tube. Unscrew the clamps and slip two of each around each fork leg. The worm screws should be at rear of the fork tube. Slip a clamp gasket between each clamp and fork and finger tighten the clamps. The ž”x ū ” bolts should be sticking straight out to the sides. Center the clamps spaced 3 inches apart between the triple clamps. Carefully turn the handlebars to lock in each direction to assure that the clamps do not touch any other parts of the motorcycle. If the clamp worm gears interfere the clamps may be reversed with the worms at the front side of the forks but this makes tightening or adjusting them with the fairing mounted very difficult. 2) Test fit the fairing (shown upside down in the top photo) over the headlight and in front of the instruments. Try to leave a spacing of ž inch everywhere. If required the fairing may be trimmed to match the gap to the headlight. Do the sides of the fairing cover the ž”x ū ” bolts so that
holes to be drilled through the fairing will securely receive the bolts? Looking from the side of the fairing and with the fairing located with the center above the headlight move the rear of the fairing up and down to determine the best fit to the motorcycles lines. When
