The white fairing is the one that came off my 85RT. The black is a spare which I got as part of a job lot of bits. Anyone know the story with the differences? RT vs LT perhaps? The one I have on the bike right now is supposed to be an LT fairing but does not have those holes.

They are interchangeable and I believe the LT was the only one with the flaps but not all had them. Now days the way they have been canabized the vents can come on anything.

The vents came on the LT model in 06/88.

The middle section of the predrilled holes for the screen is different on the RT vs. LT.

Thanks for those answers!
Glad they are just vents and not something hideous like location points for reflectors.

See the vents and how they work mate, you know the obolong holes in the other fairing you enquired about, its all right we often forget things when in shock. Jon Lord died and I am in shock, bloody great keyboard artist he was.

Oh...you mean they actually WORK..lol. Sorry.
Yeah, I heard he died. I can't believe he was in his 70's.
I wasn't in shock, just my normal thick self.
Sharp Sean they call me. Sharp as a bowling ball.
