So i build my track bike in 3 days.
Here are my thoughts on the new bike:
It's a lot harder to shift between race fairings and original fairings.
The new bike is made of layers on layers.
BMW is now using plastic pushpins and velcro to attach some parts.
on my 2016 i could shift fairings in under 50 min.
The new one will take 2 hours.
Some parts are snapped in. The snaps will break sooner or later.
Overall its a lot more time consuming to remove the original fairings.
I am using CRC race fairing. Belly pan with the original system need a lot of modification.
The fitting is not great but it will work with some use of dremel tool.
Everything you have noted I feel the same way. Flipping from stock plastic to race fiber body is not near as easy in the amount of screw and snaps. Those snaps are just waiting to be broken.
Then the kickstand drags if you run with it, which I have too.
How about those headlights and ballast? I forgot to weight it, but my guess is near 5 pounds.
I bought a front fairing stay to mount on my race nose assembly and plan to release the front at those 4 screws holding the cluster / fairing stay. Then pull the assembly off with all the stock stuff mounted to that one. I think that will decease the time alot leaving all that together in the front.
Then I am extending the plug connectors in the rear to the cubby hole area so that I can just unplug the tail lights/ brake bracket assembly without removing the side pods.
