Dang Rock Chips...

I was on a short stint on the interstate yesterday and I noticed thereafter this nice chip in the paint on the front left side of the fairing below the headlight. I know it's not probably the BMW rider thing to complain about but I'm pretty ticked and want to repair it. Seems like the cheapest or maybe easiest thing to just replace it with a used panel and then maybe put a clear paint protector on there.

Re: Dang Rock Chips...

Bummer ! Look on the bright side though: Had that rock hit the headlight assembly it would have been very expensive to replace. If you have not put a protector on your RT, think about doing so. I have the Cee Bailey version and it is very east to install and looks like OEM anyway. I also have a cooler protection screen from Wunderlich installed.

I have that same headlight protector, but haven't gotten the oil cooler protection.
