If you want factory, the cheapest I have found is ronayers.com its about 30 off of retail. still expensive, but better than getting hosed from your local dealer.

i heard airtech fits like shit!! my boy is a manager at cyclegear and he tells me to stay as far away from airtech as possible.. he said sharkskinz are the way to go... he sells a ton of race parts/bodywork...

already got a complete set of bodywork at a fraction of the price...

thanks anyway

ordinarily sharkskinz rock-I would say that they have 98% customer satisfaction. Airtech can make decent bodywork, the problem is that 50% of the time they do not make 'finished' bodywork- Had a friend do a tornado gsxr, the mold had chuck graves, number 8 plate moulded into the form- it would have taken 10 minutes of labor to fix the mold so the crack and the number plate number was not in every piece of bodywork that they make, for that model. Buddy bought some for his 89 gsxr and it is what I would call, sharkskinz quality. Thick, and made well, its like most things today, manufacturing has a fairly crappy pool of employees, either they have energy and drive, and no common sense, or they are skilled and disenchanted, and take it out on their work, either way we suffer.

yeah i hear ya...

i already got the tail, upper and front fender (they forgot to send me the lowers, but its on its way now)... the tail fits.. four outta the 6 mounting holes line up... so i guess its a good start... the upper doesnt have that little scoop above the headlights.. or the mounting holes... so i gotta figure something out with that... (anyone know if the little light above the cbr900s headlights fits???)

the bodywork needs to be sanded.. i knew that.. i have to wait on the lowers to mount everything.... drill the holes.. ill let everyone know what happens when i get the pieces..

that price is probably just the upper and lower...not the tail and fender.

Check with the site sponsor hardracing.com.

cheapcycleparts.com online price for an upper and both side panels was $1400...fook...!
