Not sure on the Hotbodies, but I'd recommend taking a look at the Optimal fairings offered by a few of the site vendors. From everything I hear they're cheaper than the Hotbodies and hold up extremely well.

The Formula 1 Composites on Ebay are the same as Optimal and $200 cheaper. You can get them as cheap as $280 shipped. Takes about a week to get them here.

If you're not buying good bodywork like Attack Performance or Sharkskinz, don't waste your money on anything else.

Tom is right. I'd been buying the cheap stuff for years and once I decided to try a set of Attack, I'll never go back. You definitely get what you pay for. If you want to get a decent paint job on your stuff, you'll end up paying more for the paint for all the extra prep work and you're still left with ill fitting plastics. Don't know about the optimal as I've never tried them, but Attack is my brand of choice. They recently increased their prices though. I think I'd rather find a used set of a better brand than go back to the cheap stuff. Try Larry as well to see what he can do for you track-junkieracing.com

$295 shipped for an '06 CBR600RR from Formula 1 Composites. CAN'T beat that.

Is the fitment good on the Formula 1 Composites? Not really looking to paint or anything, just to get some track fairings on so I don't mess up my street stuff.

Surprisingly good, especially for the price. We had to do no modifications to the last 4 sets I bought and painted for friends. Actually I'm shocked at how well they do fit.

They are a fantastic low-price set of bodywork, I wish they would let me sell them. Unfortunately (or fortunately) they only sell them on Ebay. Less than $300 shipped is incredible for a good fitting, decent weight, decently crushable, complete set of bodywork.

If they're the exact same as the Optimal brand then I should be fitting up a set this weekend. I'll make sure to take some pics and put up a quick review.

The same 'cept for the price. The F1 are about $100-$200 cheaper. That's tire and trackday $$$
