Original instructions for Vetter Fairings and Saddlebags
If you have a set of original instructions not posted here, send them to me, I will scan them
Vetter instructions from 1977- 80 are works of art. They were illustrated by Bob Clarke, a man of fantastic talent. After I sold Vetter, Bob went to Honda where he became Chief Engineer of Honda Performance Development, Inc. and President of Honda Performance Development. He retired in 2009.

Congratulations, Bob

Beginning in 1979, the new owner of Vetter Corp produced several fairings that I did not think worthy of the Vetter name. They will not show up on my pages.

After Bell aquired the devastated company, I designed a fairing for them, the Bullet which they built for a couple of years . The Bell folks were more comfortable making helmets.

The most asked question seems to be:

"How do I replace my burned out headlight?"

At the bottom is a little slot. Use a screwdriver to push it in slightly. The chrome ring unscrews like a jar lid.

It is a very clever design.

By the way, today when a headlight burns out, I simply go to Wal Mart and buy a sealed beam halogen unit for about $9.00. It has a car pattern but I think it is just fine for the price.
