I am not saying you should have to ask for a bracket, but seeing as it is new he may not KNOW that it doesn't fit and will more than likely fix it. And for 1,100 dollars I would ASK if everything fit before I dropped that kind of money...but that's just me.

He did but hasn't been able to get out on it because of work. He's hoping for 1 good day in the upcoming week to really get on the highway and crank the stereo.

Sounds like pretty good advice to me. If he doesn't know that there is a problem he can't fix it.

I'm also on the Kawsaki Nomad Forum and a lot of guys there have dealt with Alex at Reckless and have said that he's a straight shooter and willing to help out when there is an issue.

I was giving the community a heads up that it doesn't fit.

As far as checking ahead of time to see if the fairing would fit the bike it was specified that it was a Suzuki C50T and a lot of questions were asked prior to purchase. Reckless advertises the fairing for the C50 on their site.

The bike and fairing aren't mine. If the owner wants to call Reckless he's more than welcome. I'm not calling Reckless.

Funny how a bike that has so many accessory options has so much trouble with the fitment of a fairing, no matter the brand.
