Hey, thanks! That is a better picture than anything else I have been able to find. It does look like the same thing.

They're different in the detail- the Mantis has those stupid pointy bits at the bottom. But yeah, similiar. I've never seen the Mantis on an SV, they don't sell very well because of the high price and slightly dodgy looks, most people go with KTM instead.

I thought that Dubtecv2 had it on his SV at one time, and I think industrialgrrlll (spellling is off) had the same thing....
It has been done, this much I know.

I go back and forth a lot. I like the Buel XB12R fairing. And the Ducati 996/998 fairings. A lot of the nice looking ones need lowers on them to look complete though. I cut down my stock windscreen yesterday, but have not mounted it yet. Used a cuttoff wheel, an air whizzee and 3M pads to take it down and round it off. Used 3M scotch brite pads to buff it smooth. Using a cotton wheel now to polish. This might tide me over for a while. Make it look a little more 'racey'...
