WTB: Race Fairings / Bodywork / Plastics

Hello Everyone,

I am looking to find a set of race fairings for my '15 R3. I currently have a race tail and the OEM front fender, so I only really need the main upper and lower, but I'm open to buying a full set as well. It never hurts to have spares!

I'm not necessarily brand-specific, so if you have a set laying around that you're not using, I'm all ears! Let me know what you have!

Thanks,

Sean

My thinking after some research was that the Armour Bodies race bodywork holds up well and can hold up to crashes often. I bought mine from www.SuperbikeUnlimited.com cause they had them on sale for about 40 bucks cheaper than normal. The other one I was interested in was Sharkskinz but I am not sure they will be ready in time for our first scheduled race. I think any of the kits from armour Bodies come from Woodcraft though.

give them a call, they just finished making my set and Im picking the bike up next week. They do quality work and the owner makes a lot of fairings for motoamerica riders. Another plus is that he is located in canada so the cost will be cheaper than sharkskinz and hotbodies.

I'll post pics of my bike next week when I get the bike back

I live down the street from them and they actually used my bike to make his compression mould I got a set for free. Not sure how much it would cost best is to give them a call. The set includes belly pan, upper fairing and tail section. He is painting my set right now once I have the bike back I will post pics.

Thank you very much for the insight. Armour Bodies is a route I'm heavily considering. I've had multiple people at the track see success with their bodywork holding up well, especially with lower speed offs. May I ask what your set cost shipped to your door?

Please post photos after you get them on the bike. I'm excited to hear your thoughts on the initial quality. I may touch base with them regarding cost after shipping. Thank you for sharing!

Sean, the set was 629.00 plus 65.00 shipping to the door and I opted to buy the 30.00 Dzus fastener kit they recommended.

The Armour Bodies doesnt include a fuel tank cover or the side panels that go between the seat and fuel tank, you can use the stock ones. It also requires the use of the stock or an aftermarket front seat. It is a very nice set. Very sturdy and primered and ready for a light sanding before paint.

Perfect, thank you for the great feedback. I'm starting to lean towards the Armour Bodies way. Still open to any used sets at a discount, though!
