Yup, they even sponsored the LSTD endurance team with bodywork for the '07 6R.

I was helping them develop the bodywork and they sold quite a few sets within the CMRA. Everyone has been very happy with it... too bad you can't get it any more!

ya!

For what its worth, I always buy cheap plastics because I know they are gona break anyway. I got a cheeta, shark, and knock off tail section for the stunt bike, they all broke the same way in the same place(mounting tabbs and dead center behind the seat). The cheetah lasted longer, probably because I didn't wreck as much when I used it.

I wouldn't waste any time or money doing that. The weight actually wouldn't be too much of an issue or any at all.

The issue with the way they break is the way they're constructed with the resins and fiberglass fabric. Pretty much no matter what you do (aside from re-glassing them inside AND out), they're going to break in the same way.

If you get the cheap stuff, keep everything cheap- no sense in spending extra time or money on nice paint jobs or "reinforcements".

Like I've mentioned many times before; it all depends on your goals and money. Some folks are going to get more out of the cheap sets based on what type of riding they do, some will benefit more from the expensive stuff. YMMV

Yoshimitsu...Larry sells it for $299. I sanded it and painted it with spray paint. No issues with it. I agree with Buck on this one.

I have the rockwall bodywork on my bike and we just became a distributor for them. The quality overall is very good and it came primered in black. Looks really close to Hotbodies as far as quality. I have ran it for 2 weekends and it is holding up really good. I agree with Buck if if you get something like these you can buy 2 sets for the price of one of the others. If you are buying something for long term that wont see track use then go with the Sharkskinz or Attack.
