Track Plastics

What are your preferences, or good and bad experiences with these two?


Sharkskinz & Hotbodies



Thanks

Gor for Attack but if you want to save a little CycleSkinz is making some good stuff.

I think Skid's first order for the CBR was Sharkskinz? Nightmare is an understatement of the experience he went through. He can post the details about the packing, damage, re-shipment and not-fixed damage, customer service and all.

He is pretty happy with what he got now! I just can't think of the name. Attack? Maybe he'll post after he comes back from lunch.

Thanks everyone for all the quick replies.

Houseofpain, I may be in touch with you for some paint once I buy the plastics.

I'll contact Patrick and see about the Attack bodywork fitting a 1000 and check into some pricing.

just be careful of what HOP uses, those tail sections have a tendency to fly off sometimes.

Dealing with SharkSkinz was a freaking nightmare. It took over two months and they still couldn't send me bodywork that wasn't broken. They even sent me a set they told me was new, but it was obivous it was the original set that they did a half job of repairing and was already broken again when I recieved it. After that, they told me it would be another 4 weeks to get my bodywork again. I told them to off and bought Attack, with btw they normally keep in stock and don't wait until you order it to build it like SharkSkinz.

Well, ...

Now I'm getting conflicting information about the fitment of the 600RR attack bodywork on a 1000RR. (2006)

Who has done this?

To go with Attack, they don't make it appearently.

If the 600 kit isn't interchangeable it will just slim down my options some.
