my 96 seca's front fairing rattled around like crazy any time over 70mph, so I removed them (already pretty trashed anyway). Now the entire front end just looks totally halfassed! Anybody have ideas on how to improve the appearance without spending too much (starving student here!) or messing up the odometer?! Ive seen some majorly bulk ace conversions--like fzr for instance--but its always uber expensive and usually screws up the odo readings.

Thanks! Id appreciate any advice :kudos:

Check out Koi's bike. It doesn't look too bad with all the stock stuff.
