To save alot of time I would get the race bodywork and an extra fairing stay and mount it to the race bodywork (the upper). when you are ready for a trackday all you have to do is unplug and remove the gauge cluster from the stock fairing stay and unbolt the stock fairing stay from the neck of the frame (should be two bolts only). The entire front fairing with headlight should come off in one piece. The race upper can then be mounted to the neck of the frame quick and easily if you already have it mounted to the race upper. I could convert my street bike to race trim in under 30min while having a beer or two.
smart idea!!

I don't know about you Tony, but every set of Attack I've worked with fit better than the Sharkskinz. Especially since Sharkskinz moved their operation to Mexico...

Remember what happened to Godfather Racing when they made that move.

You'd be surprised to see what kind of engineering goes on at a race day. There is a team called ZipTie Racing.

Really? that's a shame. Their old stuff was good enough to drill on the indicators without even mounting up...you could trust them.

Sound like a great setup. Can this be done on a 2008 gixxer 100?

You sure can, and it's even easier to do with better bodywork.
