Hey guys, im on the market for racing fairings but i want my machine to look SEXY!

Let me get an idea of what brand I should go with and why.

Just sold the Gixxer, to race the cheaper SV so got some spare cash.

Let me see them!

What's up game,
That Kit from above doesn't come with a tail section for the second gen bike's, only the upper and lower, along with the fairing bracket to make it fit.

I'll tell you what isn't sexy. I have Sebimoto bodywork on my bike and just installed a Leo Vince full exhaust. In order to have the bodywork fit, I had to cut an oval in the side of the bodywork to make way for the exhasut. I'm going to put a bubble of fiberglass patch to repair the hole. On the exhaust I put exhaust wrap. To make sure the exhaust wrap doesn't rub off I'm going to attach a piece of thin sheet metal with a couple of hose clamps. not the ideal setup.

I'm also concerned that Leo vince's have a rep of the mid pipe hitting the ground on tight right turns. I'm concerned that the jury rigging I did will all be for nothing when the pipe starts hitting the ground.

That is some of the best looking plastic I've seen for the 2nd gen. Do you know if they make a tail section? Or if they sell them stateside?
I have this body work. It's by Poly 26 and had intended for my street bike, but didn't work out to my satisfaction ... works well as race bodywork though. Ended up taking it off and now it's sitting in my garage.

I'm falling a couple hundred short of the price which he is firm on. I may have it by the time we finalize things, and if he still has the bike, maybe we can set something up.....

Not sure about looks, but there is no substitute for Sharkskinz. The hold up REALLY well in a crash. Worth the extra $$ in replacement costs.
