I removed the lower faring long ago and converted the bike into a touring bike.
When I bought it with 10,000 mile on it, the front faring was moving up and down a lot. My son and I took it apart and reinforced it with 1/4 inch aluminium plates riveted together by 3/8 alu rivets. Now the K has about 35,000 miles and the front fairing is still solid.
Dropping the fork, even ten mm is a help.
Thanks for all your input
