Not my Plastic

So I'm thinking someone down the line did a GSXR fairing swap on my 05 SV650 K5. Don't know the plastics well enough but, what I do know from the images I've seen it's not original.

Re: Not my Plastic

Wow, that is an unfortunate amount of ill fitting bodywork where it does not belong. One good dip in the road at speed though and it looks like it would liberate itself from an otherwise good looking bike. I'd get an ebay headlight and do a naked conversion!

Do have plans to fabricate something of my own. Also it is lowered in the rear and I have to change that. Still discovering the problems and accepting that I wont be legally riding this season.

Re: Not my Plastic

What you have there is a Sharkskinz SV650 fairing. Take heart, they arguably make the highest quality race fairings for the SVs.
