New Motorcycle Fairings

Alright, so im thinking about getting some new fairings, I wanted the candy apple red fairings but when i called to see how much it would be for everything from yamaha they quoted me about 3 grand total, that included the tank, and then another 5-700 dollars for installation. So my question is, does anyone know of a website or company they ordered fairings from that were good quality, reasonable price, and fit good with no mods?

Thanks in advance!

on ebay, seller Auctmarts1 seems to be the popular choice

http://stores.ebay.com/auctmarts1_YZ...4.l1581&_pgn=2

if u want to be picky about color scheme this other site allows to pick other colors. I think another board member (Snow?) bought some for his cbr (cbrfairings.com - but its all the same company)

if its an 06/07 r6, this ebay user has both the tank and cover

tank
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/06-07...#ht_4550wt_940

cover
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/06-07...#ht_2214wt_940

i'm sure you could work somethin out to get a discount if you purchase both together

Did you look into painting at all? A little late now but just a suggestion for others thinking about the same thing.

Yes but there very little (but nasty) scratches on the fairings from straps, it would take lots of sanding to be done. Plus I really just love that deep red color.
