Thanks for the help.

We just started selling the new GP Composites bodywork this year, and it's really great stuff! Flexibile like SharkSkinz, so it crashes well. Price is comparable to SharkSkinz , but GP's customer service is awesome. We got a new set of bodywork for Kris' SV race bike and they GP guys worked all weekend to get it done and shipped to Kris in time for his race! They also make a great new fairing bracket that is crashable like the GP Tech bracket, but without the "floppy" fairing ears. Shoot and e-mail if you want a price quote: sales at SVRaceShop.com.

like jarel said, they were able to make me a set pretty quick, then ducowner 2nd day'd it to me so i could make my race....thanks again. the overall quality is as good as i've seen. its lighter than sharkskinz too.

i will have my paint completed within a week, then i'll have jarel post up pics of it. its gonna look awesome in the cyclezoo/svraceshop red black scheme. 8)

Kris, Jarel or DucOwner, does anyone have good pics of the install on Kris's bike? i have a set of GP composites that i got earlier this year. i had to do some serious cutting up front to allow the GSXR front end to turn lock to lock without rubbing. Anyway, this was my first install of bodywork (and GPs first generation of this bodywork i have come to find out). The upper looks great, but the lower slopes down in the rear which is the opposite of how I think it should look. ran the bike with no paint at the track and the lower scraped in two places. Scott at GP composites has said they've come up with a modified lower that they are now selling and will make things good with mine when i send it back. i just want to make sure the upper is installed correctly. I have to say the customer service is top notch. Also, what's this "crashable" fairing stay? is this thing servicable? the one i bought from GP composites is one piece. here's a pic of mine. i've got more if anyone feels like diagnosis. thanks,

jeff h

The new Morse racing fairing has removable ears that bolt onto the side so if you bend or break them, you can just bolt on new ones. Just like the GP Tech design, except the ears are actually bolted on instead of loosly clipped on so the upper is mounted much more solid. It's normal to have to trip the upper to make clearance for the Gixxer front end, I had to hack the crap out of my SharkSkinz the same way.

Which upper? I have the GSX-R upper. When I had the SV upper, I had to trim the sides down to allow my levers to clear at full turn, since I like them tipped down a little.

jeff h- your bodywork isn't rotated back and upwards far enough. as you stated, the lower slopes down, you need to reposition the upper fairing mounting point and adjust it.
