My philosophy is this... (because you have heard what the paint guys have to say) If it is a pain in the to get fitted the first time around it will continue to get worse after you pull them on and off for bike maintenance or have to do some repairs after a get off. I personally pull the plastics off my bike after every track day to change the oil / filter and go over all my bolts. Having body work that fits makes this alot easier. To each their own....

I bought the Attack bodywork from Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited. Fits perfect. Painted myself with rattle can and no prep work. This is with only one coat of paint and no clear.:icon_smil

With the right amount of buyers you could probably get the price down on any plastics.

I'm sure if we can get 5-8 people ready with cash up front to buy the bodywork then Patrick could make us a deal :icon_bigg!

Right Patrick?

Seriously speaking, how much do you think Attack or HotBodies would cost as a group buy (different bikes ofcourse).

better check availability of which bikes they make bodywork for as well. every company doesn't make bodywork for EVERY bike. that's one thing to consider as well.

I paid about $850 for a complete fairing set for my 06' 600rr. i'm guessing with 5-10 people, you may save $50 or somewhere in that range. but don't take my word for it, i don't know chit about group buys :dontknow:

shiiiiit if you can get 2 sets of the cheap stuff from one set of the good stuff.................would suck to be bragging about the good stuff crash and all you plastic gets destroyed and there you are out of 850 bucks, I'd rather crash and destroy my plastics and be out of 300 than 850. then again if you want the more expensive stuff it's sometimes better to catch someone selling a set. I did that with my zx7r that i had. got a set of sharkskins for like 200 bucks.

FYI, since I don't even know if I'll like this track bike I bought some stuff off of eBay............$76.00 - upper/lower/f-fender. For some reason I don't think it will last long, and it sure isn't going to win any shows.

If you want to do a group buy, let me know and I'll see what kind of deal I can get everyone.

Also FWIW, the CBR600RR / CBR1000RR bodywork is more expensive because of the tank cover, something the other bikes typically don't have.

Everyone has there own opinions on bodywork, but if you look at most of the experienced on here we all agree, saving money by buying cheap bodywork is an oxymoron.
