Track bodywork mounting/drilling tips?

Going to install some race bodywork on my RR this evening, anyone have any tips for drilling the holes and mounting? Never put race plastics on before, and any tips would be awesome.

Just measure 5 times and only drill once.

If you get Carbon to help you he will make you cut off mounting tabs.

put tape over the mounting holes before you drill. it helps minimize the fiberglass shattering.

Be patient... give yourself plenty of time. Start with the front fender, and tail section... they are usually the easiest.

Time to put those back on and send the race body work to get painted from houseofpain.

I just ordered a set of those Eracing fairings also for my 05 Kawi 636, Anxious to see how they turn out on your bike. Mine won't be in till next week, Post some pics when you get them mounted to see the fitment.

I'm going to wait to mount them till this weekend, I paid $400 shipped, took about 3 days to come in. First impressions are i guess decent, the bodywork is pretty thin. A good amount of prep is gonna be needed if you want a decent paint job, but im rattle canning anyways. Do have a small crack on the nose peice. Get what you pay for... But all im really concerned about is fitment, guess well see this weekend.
