I had one of the first sets of these early last year and they worked really well. This was even before he had the smoked and removable mounts. I had a problem keeping the 3M tape sticking on the inner fairing even after cleaning the inner fairing really well with alcohol and letting it dry. Sancho was great and sent me another pair but I have not installed them yet.

My questions is are most of you still getting the permanent(well nuts) ones or the removable(tape) ones?

For the permanent ones, any installation tips anyone has learned to make them stick better to a non painted inner fairing?

I am considering either ordering some of the removable ones and drilling the holes or picking up the hardware at Lowe's and coverting the ones I have.

I have a set o the permanent one's on my bench, but haven't installed them yet. Hopefully I won't run in to the same issue your having. My inner fairing is not painted either.

So, I guess I will stay tuned to this thread.

I have used both, and just recently went with the one with the wellnuts. Never had any problems with the tape not holding on the others,.. just figured Sanchos wings will ALWAYS be on my bike so might as well drill some holes.

I just installed the removable ones. I wanted to be able to remove them. I would think making the ones you have removable would be simple enough. Just need some well nuts and a drill.

Got some removable ones on order - I like the idea of being able to remove them for whatever reason (maybe I want my inner fairing painted one day) so that's the route I went.

I'll let you know if I have any issues/hints for install.
