i would give it a shot not bad for a complete set of track plastics! I would go for it, it does say factory blemishes so they probably are not too bad.

it will fit. The only difference is the front fender since forks are inverted. And you need new air ducts if you decide to run them.

It should work fine for 03 on up. The changes in the body where cosmetic. I would buy that already before it is gone!

See if the seeler will send you pictures of this "blems" he is referring to. Another problem you may run in to, is the upper and lower may not fit together very good.

When it comes to race fairings... I truely believe, you get what you pay for.

Cheaper than going down in stock. Even with blems (pending on how bad they are) it's a descent price. Just don't go in with high expectations. And be prepared to do some work.

Negative there ghost rider, the '05-06 will not match up, I tried already. The tank skin is too short and the upper will sit very low. I had Hotbodies send me an emergency set to Hallett last year and they sent the new and mine's an '03. NO GO!! I can see in the pics that the ears on either side of the tank skin don't look right either. They should be very pointed where they meet the upper. Gonna need some grinding if so....... But if I had an '05 I'd be all over it, you are right...............only track plastic.
I have some '03 plastic that is salvagable, upper, lower, tail and a stock black tank skin if you're interested in it. You know it'll be a smokin' deal.

I get a-kit/mad dog race glass delivered for 385.00 new. Good stuff, durable and better fit than any Hotbodies I ever had. The used set I have is a-kit/m-d if you wanna come by and see what a set looks like after an endrance season where every member went down at least once, some three or four. (rough season) REALLY DURRABLE and repairable.
