Thumbs up What is the best body works for my track bike?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Zoom.....Hello all, can you help me decide which body work is the best for my 2004 Honda CBR 600RR? Sharkskinz, Cheeta, etc....?
I want to buy new body works for my bike and since all have already experienced this can you help direct me to make the best selection.
Which one has the best structural integrity at all screw connections?
Which one has the best factory fit without modifications?
Which one survives the crash best....even though I don't have plans to wreck.
Which one has the best finish to paint?
Which one has the best price?
Which one has the best replacment part service?
And any other item to address I might of not posted.


Thank You for your time and consideration.

I've got sharkiskinz and they seem to have survived very well. Attacks are supposed to be excellent as well.

Parts etc are repaired by Tony of at Tom's Paint and Body

larry meyers. the yoshimitsu body work. take a little fab work but if you crash it's cheaper to just buy new sets. don't get me wrong the attack and sharkskinz are the way to go if you got the extra cash for sure. but for the not so rich. i'm very very pleased with the body work i got from larry meyers

Back to the batmobile....Robin!!!

Nice drift team, with all this information and previous posts I feel I have enough recon to make an educated assault and flank this track body. I'll check out the Sharksinz and Attack for now, but I won't rule out the others. Your input will be greatly returned in some unbelivable orgasmic return someday..... Ride to satify..brothers and sisters!

E-racings FTW, It's just a trackbike right. Not going for glitz and glam or Bling. My skins were $325 delivered and survived 1 Nasty lowside. And they were reapired like new condition. No need to spend $500+.

i have worked with NUMEROUS amounts of bodywork brands.....

ATTACK PERFORMANCE gets my #1 vote. fitment is near perfect without any modifications or fab work, quality is top notch, and NOTHING comes close to their finish. it's not the most expensive stuff out there, nor is it the cheapest, but overall it's the very best stuff money can buy.

if you want to go cheap, call up Larry meyers at MSR-Houston and pick up the yoshimitsu stuff, best bang for the buck.

I bought Tony's (HouseofPain) CBR600rr and the Attack bodywork is top notch, 1 great thing they do is offer a 2-piece tail section and it is nice. You can remove the rear end of it where most people mount the PC3 etc and you don't have to remove the seat/entire tailsection. You can also keep your sidestand on which is great for trackdays. (Since you occaisionally might need to dis-mount away from your pit area). Not sure what other brands offer those benefits.

You can see the seam of the 2-piece tail in this pic...

I second that. I went with E-racing which seem to be going out of business now. But I'm happy with them. It took a little tweaken to get the fit right, but nothing that made me think the stuff sucked. The finish is not as good as Attack, but with paint on it you would never know and at $342 to my door I can afford to trash them if they didn't hold up. Thing is you might crash your first track day or 2 years later so no need to break the bank for track fairing if you can't afford it at the time. If money isn't a problem then Attack FTW from what I here.
