What do you guys/gals like?

I was looking at a few options (ie shark skinz) but this will be my first set of fairings to swap out on my bike for track days. Don't want to waste the $$$. Thanks

I was hoping auctmart would have some made( aftermarket fairings not necessarily just for track) but that hasn’t happened yet. I’ve had really good luck though then on a bunch of bikes

CRC fairings are pretty good quality and reasonable price, I bought a set of hot bodies fairings for our R1 race bike couple of years ago and they were crap, we actually ended up throwing them out without even using them.

Sharkskin & Carbonine are quality but $$.
Lacomoto & armorbodies are decent, what I use. Have not checked if they released 2020 fairings yet.

They can make oem copy’s just need to show them a bunch of pictures. I had them make oem copy’s for a few r1’s but also whatever you want for design

It's not hard, just tedious. The bodywork snaps into place in several spots that might not be obvious.

2 tips:
1. On the tail bodywork, the pointy end on each side at the very back has a little tab that points toward the front of the bike. You'll want to slide those off toward the rear rather than pull them off sideways.
2. Under the windscreen, the cover that you remove to disconnect the lights in the mirrors has 2 tabs near the top, and one hook at the bottom that slides in from below. Be careful pulling loose the tabs at the top of that piece or you can break the hook at the bottom when they pop loose. (Don't ask how I know.)

What about removing the assembly with the headlights? pretty simple?

Sorry - I haven't removed the headlight assembly. If you get stuck I can look in the shop/technical manual and tell you what it says.

I'll have some uppers and lowers in white available. Alpha/Carbonin. Used. We are replacing with Armour Bodies (our sponsor) who finally got them produced.

Will you be selling these? Assuming they are they same ones you had at the BMW press event last year? The white primary color ones?

Actually the BMW press bikes were all stock, we took those and put track plastics from Carbonin, just the upper and lower, no seat or tail piece. We should have a number of those available in the near future as we switch over to Armour Bodies. PM for specific questions.
