Searched & did my best to research this before posting; so please forgive me if it's a repeat. The DP branded carbon headlight fairing that fits an S4; will this fit my next S4RS? My bike does not have one & the original part is long gone. The OEM replacements are OVER $500 before I buy the windscreen, & all the eBay ones are either crash rashed or simply too close to a new OEM price. Except for a DP carbon one with a screen on eBay. It is shown mounted on an early S4, but it looks like it mounts with the same design as the S2R/ S4R fairings. Thanks!

You might have to take a chance with it. I think it being aftermarket there is a pretty good chance you can make it fit. The stock one is a flimsy piece of crap that is not sturdy at all. I put a taller windshield on it and it shakes like crazy at higher speeds. If I leave it like that it’s probably going to break right off one day.

It will fit. As said not the most sturdy part, but never heard of one actually breaking; I have seen some extra supports, but don't remember where

Thanks, dudes! I'd rather have an OEM piece with the correct color just for authenticity sake, but not for $500.

When riding down the road with that fairing undulating wildly I’ve thought about reinforcing it in some way, but it looks like everything is flexing. It became much worse with the taller windshield, though the windshield works well. If a replacement is $500 I better reinforce the fairing or put the stock windshield back on . I don’t ride highways much anyway.

Well, the DP fairing was ordered & paid before I got part numbers. My local shop had ZERO clues how to cross reference this. Hoping the tribe didn't steer me wrong. It arrives Saturday, so we shall see. Thanks, man!
