Stay away from anything Pit-Eck...

its beyond cheap ...


SharkSkins and Attack are great...

Optimal is good so i've heard. I was gonna get an E-racing set for mine but the kiddo ate up all my funds...

I've had some Catalyst Composites and Godfather Racing skins on my ZX7r and the older stuff was decent, but it went the route of hotbodies and shipped manufacturing to mexico or something so the quality went downhill.

Attack gets my vote for cheaper than sharkskinz, finishes is wet sand and spray. No fitment problems. For a sturdier body, go with sharkskinz.

Those prices are what I can get right now...

Thank you all for your opinions.

I'm going with Armour and Attack.

I had Sharkskinz before they moved manufacturing south of the border and it was great stuff. I've seen a couple sets of their new stuff and it's obvious the quality has suffered some. Attack would be my choice now followed by Armour Bodies. However, if you crash a big bike like you did the mini...go cheap Moe

Looks like Attack wanted to make a better deal if I bought more then one set, so I went with (2) sets of Attack bodywork.

Shipment coming in on Tuesday.

Tony - Wednesday we're meeting in Galleria...

i had SOME catalyst stuff on my previous bike and it seemed really solid and the fitment was good if not perfect.

cheetah is cheap, much lower quality than the catalyst and the better brands.
