RACING BODYWORK???

Looking for advise for which racing bodywork brand is better. For example, which fits better-Hotbodies or Sharkskinz? Looking to buy race bodywork, but wanted some opinions first. Advantages/disadvantages of both brands for 05 gixxer1K. Also where's the cheapest place to buy them?

sharkskinz if you have the $$$ burning a hole in your pocket, fit will be perfect/near perfect, maybe some minor mod of the bellypan with dremel, rumored to crash well

hotbodies if you would rather spend money saved on bodywork to buy tires etc., and dont mind taking extra time to make the pieces fit right

Thanks for the info guys. I'm going to do some more research on those previous threads. I don't mind spending the extra $, if it's worth it. Anymore info you got let me know.

Shark Skins crash and repair nicely. I would suggest them over the others. I have repaired other brands as well. The Shark Skins are by far the best you will find.

Sharkskins, Hotbodies or GP Tech.
They all fit pretty well and crash well.
