What kind of race plastics did I just buy?

Ok so I bought these off of Ebay for my 2007 ZX-6r that I just bought...paid $150 incuding shipping for the upper and tail. Its a bike place that sells all kinds of parts off of bikes. Guy says he doesnt know what brand they are. Either way I did some research at the last minute and they look exactly like sharkskins....either way I figured some of you pro trackers would know. Here are the pics of the plastics...note the extra hump on the tail, that is what made me think it was shark skins..there were the only plastics i saw with that hump. All the rest were flat and well the front upper looked the same on all the brands i looked up.

I noticed that the chinese ones were shiny...I hope they are in the "great condition" as the seller says they are...I will be rockin them un painted for this season prbably. Then maybe gets some paint later. Now I need to save for some tires! Should I be ok using these with out the bottom pan? I know that the race pans dont have a cut out for the OEM catalytic converter as they are suppose to keep oil in the pan if there was a leak.
