I'm not sure why I can't find these on the Ca-cycleworks website, but here is a direct link: https://ca-cycleworks.com/products/a.../fairingscrews
I started this thread a ways back in order to look for an alternative to buying a Supersport. There isn't one... so I bought one. Since then it has gotten sidetracked a bit as opposed to starting new threads. I think there was even an argument about the aesthetics of the 999 at one point.

Those fairing screws look nice. It would look less like something is missing.
I would much rather keep the mirrors. They look nice and they fit the bike, but I have to do gymnastics to see anything behind me.

I have similar screws in mine. Looks totally like they should be there. They also fasten the fairing to the support which is better that empty holes.

The screws on the CCW sight looked a bit bling but that's hard to tell in the picture. Mine match the plated fairing screws

I still have the origional mirrors on my SS... However, I have these Emgo Bar-End Mirrors on my Triumph, and I like them. The view behind is good, they are "ambidextrous" (the same mirror fits right or left sides) and they are CHEAP.

I suggest you go for cheap mirrors, unless you are more careful that I am. I've broken several, mostly while moving my bike around the garage. Every time I have, I've been thankful I bought the $15 mirrors, and not the $100 ones!
