The million dollar question: Who makes GOOD fitting aftermarket fairings?

I did a search and came up with a little bit of everything.The question has been asked plenty but no one ever says a solid answer so lets try this again.

Who makes good fitting aftermaket fairings for a decent price? Only post if you have had a good experience with the company/seller and know how to get in touch with them.All the other threads had half descriptions on everything.So please dont post any "my cousin's friend baby mommas neighbor" went thru a seller on ebay with a store name that started with a "S" and they fit good.

Going OEM thru Ron Ayers,etc isn't an option since im not trying to spend nearly that much money.

Bought my roommates F4i plastics from this guy

http://shop.ebay.com/delkevic_us/m.h...&_trksid=p3686

Look at his pictures the mounts are just like shown. as far as I can tell they are the exact same as OEM I am quite impressed with them.

2009 ninja 250 (Sold)







i got mine from http://www.fairingonline.com/ 2008 gsxr 600 corona edition 520 shipped.they have unbeatable prices at least as far as i found. the fitment is good, i wouldnt say its exactly like oem. the plastic seems to be at least as rugged as oem, not as flexible. it looks like there is a bit of fiberglass filler in the middle layer probably to be cheaper.
they went on pretty easy, had to drill a couple holes that werent there had to almost force some pieces together.factory bolts didnt fit in holes had to get new auto grade bolts and nuts..

the worst part was the little triangle tail light cover under the fairing flew off when i was goin real fast down the highway.happen to had another so it wasnt too much of a big deal.

search the web using google and you could probably find someone converting their bike to track use only with originals pretty cheap,i found some shortly after i had mine on the bike.

also if you rebuilding your bike after a wreck, dont use the cheapest fairing stay on ebay its , mine broke after a couple hundred miles. also some of the cheap mirrors on ebay are , they are only rubber cemented together, mine fell apart after a few miles, had to jbweld them hoes. i have a build thread that shows the fairings and everything i put on the bike so you can check them out and see for yourself. feel free to ask any questions.


oh and if you want oem fairings http://motorcycleparts2u.com/ has used fairings in good shape at decent prices.

The mounts look clean indeed.Im gonna compare the patterns from both sellers and see which ones I decide on.I stripped my R6 today and it looks ugly all naked.

Bliss Star fit my ZX-12R perfect.. BUT

The thing I have found is different manufacturers fit different bikes differently..

There is no one perfect one size fits all... best bet is to search Ebay for bikes like yours, check the feedback and ask previous buyers about fitment.

Also I have done some nicecycle sets and they are right there with some random chinese manufacturers I didn't notice better fitment at all, in fact notice how they sale the exact same paint schemes? I believe the drop ship from china.

I have bought a couple sets from here. Great fitting and very strong. Does not come pre-drilled, but it's better that way for a perfect fit. They cut the head lights out for a little more $. They have lots of goodies and are a pleasure to deal with.

sharkskinz.com ready to paint lighter than factory, still look sweet, and fit like a glove, only downside.... you have to drill the mounting holes and test fit before paint.

delkevic fairings fit great on my bike...the only downside its that the belly melted. i think they dont have the formula just right

I ended up going with bliss star after we agreed to mix and match a set.

Went with the white main fairings here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT

But with the flat black mid fairings from here:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWAX%3AIT

Hopefully their english is ok to understand me in case my cool MS Paint diagram wasn't enough.

Well I got my fairings today.It was a total of about 17 days from paying till the time they were at my door.

My quick review would be..
VERY good fitment,mounting points are on the spot.
Paint is really nice too

The only bad I see so far is there is some clear coat drips on very small sections,nothing to really bother me or that cant be cut off with a razor blade.I would for sure buy from this guy again.

Im waiting on fairing bolt kit I ordered so I was only able to bolt down the upper tail section.Here is a pic were I rigged up the rest of the kit.It came with lots of small misc black pieces that I have no idea were they go.

Bike is a 2004 but my bro custom welded me a pipe with a 06+ gytr exhaust.

2814uiq

I'll see if I can get it all together once the bolt kit comes in.I will be getting the tank painted white soon too.

Oh yeah very good for sure.You cant go wrong especially for $525 shipped.I was gonna ask you how much do you charge for install? There is all these little misc pieces that I dont know were they go. I think 1 shaped like a V holds the bottom fairings together.

i got mine from Auctmart on ebay. fitment was perfect but factory bolts (the ones that hold the fairing pieces to each other, not the ones that bolt them to the bike) didnt work. had different threading. just went to lowes and spent a doller on some bolts and was good to go.
