Fairing trim

Just starting my winter project. Took off fairing and not liking the way the fairing trim is looking.

What options are available for a narrow trim, like stock?

How thick is X-trim?

Thanks in advance

I just went to Advance Auto and bought some black U shaped door trim. I installed one piece all the way around and it look a lot better.

Black U shaped door trim from auto-parts store works great...not too thin or too thick, plus very inexpensive.

trim

Just installed cowels custom edge trim from autozone. I used a heat gun to soften and form trim. Perfect size, not too big (x-trim) and not too small (oem). Price wasn't bad either. Looks great.

On a bike I just finished painting we decided to go with no trim for a nice clean look,







Otherwise this is what I use,

RoadHawg - nice paint job... Really like the no trim look... Very clean. I already stopped using the trim on the windshield, so that is definitely an option
