Re: Need opinion ...

I never liked the looks of bare fairings. IMO it screams "I dropped the bike and didn't have sufficient insurance to fix it properly."

With that said, I like #2 better.

Oh no .. the full fairing is there. I just plastic dipped it just to try out which design looks better.

A lot cheaper this way than to get it painted and not sure if you'll like it you know?

But I'm leaning to #2 as everything except the tri part of the fairing by the strator, the under belly, and the intake will be flat black.

Second one. White and black is so sexy....then again I may be partial since that's what color my bike is.


Edit: minus the gold rims.

I love pearl white look. Will be going pearl white with black ascent.

I didn't notice that right side and left side fairings are different. They're not asymmetrical. The tri piece part near the engine case are different.

So I'll paint it all bright Pearl white and plasti-dip that back portion black. If i don't like how it looks (#2) .. peel off to make it look like #1

Re: Need opinion ...

I don't think I like it with the towel on the tank. I'm thinking it might just blow off when you're riding. You might want to color it with something more permanent.

So here's an update.

Spent all day putting it all together. Had the bike painted Lexus's Starfire White pearl.

Thanks to Motomummy for the TechSpec. Can't wait to ride!

So this is the only black part of the fairing except the under belly, under tail, and the air intake cover.

I plasti-diped it so if I get bored with the black ... I'll peel it off to go full white pearl
