dumb bodywork question

My street fairings are getting pretty beat up and was looking into sharkskinz street stuff to replace it with. Question is how difficult is it to remove the lower to change the oil and such? example: ground clearance to get the lower away from the bike without scratching the paint.

I think he is referring to the fact that OEM lowers are two halves, one on each side. Sharkskinz need to be rotated out from under the bike.

with the bike up on stands i have never had a problem. with the bike not on stands i put a couple towels/rags on the ground just to be safe. It may vary from bike to bike.

Lower pan on an RC51 w/ aftermarket body work comes off and out from the bike w/o any issues whether bike is on a rear stand or even on its kickstand.

Track bodywork- Attack Performance, bar none, nuff said, done deal, hasta la vista baby!
oem is very narrow. 500 big ones per side through ron ayers. 650 for the whole mess through sharkskins. Attack has no headlight cutouts. I am on a budget and looking to do this because I will eventually make it a dedicated track bike when I can afford to get a street bike some time within the next few years:eh: Kids are expensive.

Dood...

Just buy my RC track bike. :icon_bigg I actually parted out all the track bodywork & tank and put solid red street bodywork on it (as well as headlights, tailights, etc) to sell as street legal.

But, you could just buy it, put the good solid red bodywork on your bike and put the bodywork on my track bike, take the headlight assembly out and you're good to go...

In a perfect world I would in a heart beat. I got to pay off the sv first. Just because I work for clay walker doesn't mean that I make great money.
