Question Race fairings

Can anyone post some information on who or where to buy some low priced race fairings. I bought some from E-RACINGS for $350 last year but I think they're out of business. Anybody know of any that price or close to that value?

Bought PIT-ECK for 350 to the door. They sucked . Fitment sux and they didnt crash too well.

I ponied up for some Attack. Should have just done it in the beginning.

There are a bunch at that price...yoshimitsu is one I know.

No matter what the brand is they're all the same at that price, you can get them all on Ebay- around $350 to the door. F1 Racing is another one.


You can get Attack Performance and it will fit right. For the last 5 sets I've painted all I did was take them out of the box, drill the pre-marked spots and it fit right on the bike- in some cases better than OEM bodywork.

It's hard to convince someone to go ahead and spend the 650ish for Attack. I was hard headed even though everyone with, with any sense and experience, was telling me to get the good stuff. I bought the 350$ , spent 150 on paint, crashed, tore it up, spend 650$ on Attack + paint. So rather than suck it up and spend the $650 in the beginning, now I am $1,100.00 into body work.

So how well do the attacks hold up in a crash vs these $350 brands? And how so? I mean do the other brands obliterate into lil giblets and in the same accident the attack just gets a lil rash?

I know everyone states that the attack is better, and I don't doubt that as you get what you pay for. I am just curious as to how well the attack fairings survive in a crash vs the others in a similar crash.

Well, I havent crashed in them yet... and I dont know much about fiberglass, but I will say that they are lighter, much more flexible, thinner and fitment is superb.

I think that the thickness of cheap ones, coupled with the stress from making them fit right makes them break easy. My pit-ecks broke along the tail piece from just riding. Then they cracked at one of the holes for the tail piece for no apparent reason. Then they were so bowed around the windscreen that a hole there cracked. In a matter of 3 track days I had about 5 zip ties holding them together. Then after my crash I needed literally 45 zip ties to get through the next track day.

I dont know why, they just fkn crack everywhere at any given moment.

Hooligan's cheapos are unsalvageable after his wreck.

While Bubby, on the other hand, endo's Candy's bike and everything was fine.

I am sure others can explain the reasons better than I. I am just speaking from my limited experience with the 2.

The thinner/flexible thing makes sense. I guess sorta how those knock off 50 plastics snap all the time and those thin Honda plastics are indestructible.

Here, read this, it's a bit dated but still factual and accurate:

Your comment emboldened above pretty well sums up the results from similar crashes.

Choosing a bodywork is almost the same as a race suit. A slow crash/lowside damage will do nothing to the suit or bodywork but a highspeed, both will be obliterated.

True, but what is different is that during a high-speed crash the Sharkskinz/ Attack Performance stuff is more easily repaired whereas the cheap stuff gets binned. Not to mention that in those high-speed crashes usually every single piece of bodywork with the cheap stuff gets destroyed whereas the Skinz/ Attack stuff stays intact more often.

It's a judgment call, I know folks that would rather throw the $350 at a cheap set, live with it's fit/ finish, do a cheap paint job (or none at all) and then spend another $350 on the next set when they crash.

Personally, I put the money up front and hope that when I bin the bike the bodywork mostly stays intact or is more rebuildable.

With the cheap stuff, more often than not, during a crash (even a mild one) the bodywork gets destroyed and is largely unrepairable. Most of that is due to the construction of the bodywork in the first place.

In the event of a high speed crash and fairing damage...what does fiberglass repair costs range?

About $20 if you know what you're doing.

True but I am too lazy to fix mine up. I just get another set, prep, and paint. I only fix something that is a couple of hours repair time.

depends on the extensive of repairs. I should say about $200-$400 if there is multiple cracks on the tail and a hole on the side, rashed side and pieces missing or hanging, and cracks. This should be ready for paint repairs.
