I purchased a used Tsukayu Boox One Storage Batwing Fairing. It was in excellent like-new condition and the audio system was new and unused.
- Boox One Storage
- 6X9 Speakers
- Bluetooth Receiver
- Nakamichi 350 watt 4-channel amplifier
- Bluetooth V2 handlebar remote
- 8″ Curvy tinted windshield
- 12v Auxiliary Plug – I swapped this out for a two port USB auxiliary plug. (link)
The fairing is well made and looks great. The paint is nice and shiny. It is week though. I already have a couple spots that the paint has chipped off. My bike is 17 years old and the paint is very well intact.
I love that it has storage in the middle instead of a head unit. The door clicks to open/close which is a great feature. There is a spring in the hinge that holds it up/open. There is also a mechanism to hold a phone or thin GPS so that it can be displayed through the clear door. This is plus but also a minus. You don’t have access to the phone or GPS. Also, the spring on the door broke so it no longer holds it up.
The speakers and bluetooth receiver work great. The bluetooth is very reliable. The handlebar control is touchy. At times when I try to increase/decrease the volume or skip or rewind a track it will pause the track, instead. At this point the little button that fastens to the handlebar controller does not stay on it. And the protecting cover ripped so it no longer fastens to the controller. I used double sided tape to hold the protecting cover so it will hold the little button on and keeps it from being lost. I am not sure how to search for a replacement but am determined to find something. Tsukayu wants to sell me an entire new unit since they don’t make this one anymore. They say they don’t have spare parts for it. Other than the button and cover it functions as it should.
The major downfall of this fairing is the mount. The bushings that the fairing slides on to are low quality and need to be replaced more often that I care for. The fairing rattles and vibrates way more than it should. The Road Star produces a lot of vibration and I don’t think this was taken into consideration when the bushings were created. The fairing was on a bike for about 1500 miles and they already need to be replaced. This may be in part becuase the fairing has been mounted and unmounted a few times. But that is one of the features of this fairing: it can be quickly and easily removed/reinstalled. I believe that Tsukayu should revisit the bushings and improve them. They offer a new set of bushings for $80 shipped by themselves and $40 when you purchase them with something else.
I am researching creating my own bushings out of HDPE or UHMW. If and when that happens and they are an improvement I will offer them for sale.
The other fairing producers mount them up differently. Since I don’t have one of the other fairings I can’t really comment. I have seen one in person and it seems that they mount right up to the OEM windshield brackets and are more solid. If you have a comment or review about a different fairing please reach out and let me know so I can add it to this page.
