IOM Saturno fairing rubbing on radiator

Post by Rangy » Sun Sep 12, 2021 11:38 pm

Hi there,
My IOM Saturno 500 front fairing is rubbing against the side of the radiator (circled in image below).

Is there supposed to be something screwed into the thread (arrow)? I can't find anything in the manual.

One option might be to install a rubber stop in this thread which will push the fairing out slightly at this point.
Second option might be to use a longer mounting bolt, with longer rubber stop, to push the fairing outward slightly.

I think this will be different on non-IOM bikes as the fairing is different.

Any help ideas appreciated..... Rangy

Yeah, I have the same on my 500 IOM. There is nothing screwed in this hole on my bike. I have just installed a piece of self-adhesive rubber inside the fairing at this point so it doesn't rub on the radiator.
