Danromero87 Purchaced and installed the ABS fairings. Needed sanding a prep for sure, however came out alright. Probably won’t go this route again.

Doesn't Carbonin run roughly double that though? That's quite a bit different than an extra $100 or something to make the jump.

Peanut_EOD I have always used Sharkskinz. They’re expensive as ****, but I have never been disappointed with them.

No drilling, no cuting, nadda. You'd pay more in labor to install other farings over the small extra cost of the Carbonin.

Just sayin'

So never mind, it looks like they're typical race fairings, fiberglass with reinforced carbon, just like mine. A bit more than what I paid for my MotoXP Ricambi, but still a decent price for a full set. And judging by their phone number, they're in Virginia, just west of where I live! I would give them a shot even though I've never heard of them before. Thanks for the post...when I'll be in need of a new set, I may just go visit them

Romulu87 This was in the description on the website. I definitely recognize the importance of fiberglass parts

ABS Motorcycle Fairings® fiberglass parts with Kevlar reinforced areas. Outside finish made with white Gel-Coat. These parts will require drilling and test fitting before painting. Also, may require sanding and small repairs. Installation should be performed by an experienced technician.

again I am not opposed to going another route. just wanted to see if anyone has used them before

ABS is basically what the OEM fairings are made of. Typically what I've seen and heard about ABS race fairings is that they look good, generally easy to fit on (with the exception of some of the chinese ebay ones which are hit or miss), but they crack very easily just like OEM ones do in the case of a crash. That is why the majority of racers and track day riders use the more traditional fiberglass fairings. They are a lot more flexible and don't break as easily.
