hi,

im still searching for my future SC, and i've zeroed in on a sport classic S model with full fairings. my question to current owners is, when it rains out, does the fairing hold the water like a bucket, or does the water have a place to trickle down. i have a bike cover, but the bike will live outdoors for the summer months.

thanks for your input.

hmmmm...i've never noticed any pooling...i don't intentionally set out in a storm on this particular bike but riding frequently to and from work year round it gets rained on...in fact i've put on gt rear fender and monster front with great results and i think a longer lower profile...i don't have lowers but set up as is its bout my favorite round town bike

Sorry, can't say. Mine's never sat in the rain, but just looking at it, I doubt it would pool.

Here are some solutions for you. Rather than ruin the bike sitting outside ...

Motorcycle Capsule, Motorcycle Covers, Motorcycle Vinyl Bubble, Bike Capsule, Bike Bubble, Bike Covers

Rhino Shelter Cycle Pocket | 911-060 | J&P Cycles

For $100- $200 its well worth the investment

i'v had my monster for over 5 years living outside under a cover and its been just fine..nothing got ruined. but now that i might venture into the world of fairings i just wanted to know if it holds water......no need for bubble wrapping the bike...its not going to be a in a museum, im going to ride it.

To each their own, but that right there is a darn shame. A SC is no Monster. You can ride a bike regularly AND take care of it, the two aren't mutually exclusive
