Re: Endurance plastics ??

Do you mean race fairings? Or something special for endurance racing?

Re: Endurance plastics ??

Are there different light rules for endurance? Maybe you save a few ounces by going to a small light setup

Re: Endurance plastics ??

OK, back when srads were contemporary and current, the trend in endurance racing wasn't a stack light, but generally a single light on one side offset, or a mini dual setup in line, but not stacked.... Check out the SERT bikes.

Re: Endurance plastics ??

I think he may have seen the tail Hamill had with the plexi and the tail light moulded into the hump. The front is usually a single light unit (race glass with a cut out and moulded)
