All the pare are available in TVM. The fairing panel for one side costs around 2k i guess. my friend had a small accident in the r15, it costed him 5k to replace one side panel, one rear view mirror, and the panel, surrounding the headlamps.
The fairing is quite reasonable considering its Yamaha OEM.

Nikhil, it would be nice if you could find the price for the rearsets......Need it asap!

Default Eyelids ;)

Hey guys, just got this temporary eyelids done on the bike and would like to have ur thoughts on how it looks.. The thin line of light looks kinda cool in the dark, cuz maybe its not that noticeable in the pic. Also painted the visor black as well.. BTW, does the shape of the eyelid need any change??

Here's the pic..

@ karthik - Dude why did you paint it black ? You wont be able to see through while you tuck in for top speed runs na ? Or you could have put the film kinda sticker.

@ karthik , the eyelids look cool.That narrow gap of thin lines would really look good in dark with the headlights On...right?

oh damn Sorry to hear that man. But really many people are facing problems with their R15s. Few stupid guys trying to race. Premium Parkings due to jealous idiots. Accidents going on. People hitting other's R15s like in your case.

in hindi we call it "Nazar Lagna"

I don't think its necessary to crouch so much and see thru the visor on speed runs.. Comon, this ain't no R1..

Here are the Yellow Yamaha R15 pix from XBHP... And the 25k extra for the paint job is kinda too high. You might be able to get a real awesome paint job for sat 12-15k.
