$170 seems like ia good price for an upper fairing, but it is going to be made of fiberglass as oppsed to the stock plastic, if you are experienced with body paint, then you can do a good job painting it , will save you the trouble of applying the primer to it. but i have heard that paint on fiber glass fades a lot faster than on stock plastic, can some one who has had first hand experience with painting fiber glass put in their input about the issue.
you're right, aftermarket won't look as good as the stock plastic unless you don't care and are just going to do the rattle can. But if you crash, trust me...SO easy to repair and re-paint. $170 sounds pretty expensive though for the one piece. STRGT-have you tried looking here in the forum for what you need?
