Channel trim b/w inner and outer fairing

When sitting on the bike the u shaped black channel trim that fits b/w the inner and outer fairing on the left side keeps coming out. I've pushed it back down several times and while my bike is brand new, I don't know if I trust the dealership to repair it. I loosened the inner fairing and pushed it down as good as possible. Has anyone else experienced this small problem and if so, how did you correct it?

It is best to take care of the problem early. I kept pushing mine back on like you are doing and when summer came and the temperature hit 100+, whatever type of glue that is just oozed out all over the place. The glue does not ever get hard. I cleaned all of the OEM glue off and stuck the trim back on with black rtv, it has been on for 20K miles so far.

The should de-nut whoever picked that adhesive for that application.

You took off the entire trim, cleaned it and then put black RTV on or just on the ends?

if you buy the door edge strip at an auto parts store it works better and looks better and they are much cheaper. Put the glue on the inside edge of the fairing and it won't oz out.

Is the car door edging thicker/wider than what's there?

This is correct, I cleaned the original glue from the fairing and inside the channel trim then put a very thin bead around the fairing edge. I did not have any ooze out, but it could happen if excessive rtv were used. I do not think it would be hard to clean off the excess before it dries, so that should not really be a problem.

Why not just remove the trim piece all together, and put it back together. The inner and outer fairings really have no seal anyway. Doc

Ditto, I have had the new replacement strips both for 9.99 each for almost a year now and yet to put them on. It seems like just when I think it is not going to start coming out or apart it does while I am riding......You know it is bad when the woman says something ... I will try the Black RTV
