How to Buy the Perfect Fairing Kit for Your Bike

If you know your motorcycles, you probably also know the importance of fairing kits. You may even have bought them before. But are you buying them the right way? Sure, you can go with your gut and buy for looks, but true riders no that their connection with their bike is not quite so superficial as just that. 

It’s a lot like choosing a romantic partner. Looks are important, but there needs to be a deeper connection. Are the fairings durable enough? Aptly aerodynamic? Are you buying from the right manufacturer?

There are lots of buying considerations that go into making this decision. You want to buy smart. We want you to buy smart also. 

That is why we have put this handy guide together for bikers of every level of experience (because after all, everyone can stand to learn something new about fairings, right?). 

So, without further ado, read on for a guide on how to buy the perfect fairings for your bike. 

It Matters Where You Buy From

The internet makes for a virtually limitless marketplace. If you can’t find it online it probably doesn’t exist. 

However, this also creates problems. How? Because not all sellers are reputable. It can be easy to get sucked into the potential of getting a great deal. 

After all, random websites are often the best place to find shockingly low prices on any product. 

But they are also known for ripping people off.  You probably wouldn’t buy any part for your bike off a random stranger on the side of the street, right?

So be similarly cautious online. If you don’t recognize a website, and can’t find any reputable information about them, you probably shouldn’t give them your money.

 There are lots of cases of people getting knock offs, or otherwise damaged or ill-fitted fairings online. And the worst part? There is no guaranteed source of customer service. If you buy from a bad actor, you are probably just going to have to eat the cost. You don’t need that sort of stress in your life. 

Buy from somewhere that is reliable. Even if it costs you a little bit more money, it will be well worth the investment. 


You want something that is going to be aerodynamic. Many fairings are made for show more than they are for any practical application. Which is fine for a certain type of biker, but not for the person that wants the best of all worlds. A product that looks good, and performs even better. 

Save eye candy for the screen saver on your phone background. Application is always going to need to come before appearance, and anyway, it will always be much more rewarding to have something that will help you to take full advantage of your motor anyway, right?

An aerodynamic design should definitely be a factor, but shape isn’t all that contributes to a fairings ability to cut through headwinds. Materials can also have an impact, so pay attention and be discriminate.

Fiberglass is a good, low-weight, adequately durable, aerodynamic material that is able to help you stand up to even tricky conditions. 

It will end up costing more most of the time, but then you pay for quality, right? 

Speaking of cost…


Told you we were speaking of cost. Obviously, price is going to be a consideration for any buying decision. And, like any product, you will find fairing options within pretty much every price range. 

Naturally, you know your budget, but there is one way to look at this consideration that most people don’t usually factor in. 

Value. It’s not enough for a product just to be cheap. It also needs to have staying power. If you buy something that isn’t fit to standing the test of time, it isn’t actually all that affordable after all, right?

The longer something lasts, the better deal it actually turns out to be. 

Buy a decent set of fairings, and you won’t have to incur expensive replacement costs anytime soon.

And Yes. You Should Like How it Looks 

And yes. You should like the way that they look. Fairings started out being for performance, then they became so mainstream that people and manufacturers alike started using them for show. 

And that’s fine. Done right, they do look good. And they should reflect your personality as well, the same way that the rest of your bike does. 

But it is also important to know how to prioritize this consideration.  

If you want your fairings to reflect your personality there are lots of different ways to make it happen. If you are on a budget, you can always shop around until you find the perfect combination of value, style, and practicality. 

But if money is no object, you can always go the custom route and get something that will satisfy all of your expectations. 

Motorcycle fairing kits are diverse both in appearance, and application, so there really is something out there for every potential buyer. You just need to be patient enough to find it. 

Just never get something that looks prettier than it performs. Because really, what is the point?


Buying the right motorcycle fairings is an art form. Whether you are looking for extreme fairings, or something a little bit more moderate and pretty, the right option for you can be found with the right approach. 

You just need to be mindful. A few key considerations can ensure that you sift through the fairing kits with great success.

Invest a little bit of time into the process, and you will wind up with a set that performs just as good as it looks. 

Suzuki Motorcycles

The Suzuki Motor Corporation is a Japanese company specializing in automobiles, four-wheel drive vehicles, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), outboard marine engines, wheelchairs and a variety of other small internal combustion engines.

The Suzuki Motor Corporation was founded in 1909 as Suzuki Loom Works by Michio Suzuki and initially made, as the name suggests, weaving machines for Japan’s growing silk industry. In 1937, after almost 30 successful years of manufacturing high complexity looms, Mr Suzuki decided that he needed to expand his business and they started looking at other products.

The project began in 1937, and within two years Suzuki had completed several compact prototype cars. A then-innovative, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, four-cylinder engine powered these first Suzuki motor vehicles. It had a cast aluminium crankcase and gearbox and generated 13 horsepower from a displacement of less than 800cc. Unfortunately, due to WWII, plans were halted as passenger cars were deemed as a ‘non-essential commodity’. After the war Suzuki returned to manufacturing looms when the US Government gave permission to export cotton to Japan. However, in 1951 the cotton market collapsed and Suzuki was at a stand still.

A number of firms began offering “clip-on” petrol-powered engines that could be attached to a bicycle. Suzuki’s first two-wheel vehicle came in the form a bicycle fitted with a motor called, the “Power Free.” Designed to be inexpensive and simple to build and maintain, the 1952 Power Free had a 36 cc, 1hp, two-stroke engine. The double-sprocket gear system enabled the rider to either pedal with the engine assisting, pedal without engine assist, or simply disconnect the pedals and run on engine power alone. The government granted Suzuki a financial subsidy to continue research in motorcycle engineering, and so was born Suzuki Motor Corporation. By 1954, Suzuki was producing 6,000 motorcycles per month and had officially changed its name to Suzuki Motor Co. Ltd. 

Following the success of its first motorcycles, Suzuki created an even more successful automobile: the 1955 Suzuki Suzulight. Suzuki showcased its innovation from the beginning. The Suzulight included front-wheel drive, four-wheel independent suspension and rack-and-pinion steering, which were not common on cars until at least three decades later.

From then on, Suzuki was set to become a household name in more ways that Michio ever thought. They now manufacture many different models of engines and vehicles with the iconic GSX-R and Hayabusa motorcycles. Suzuki were eventually to manufacture the Hayabusa, the fastest mass produced motorcycle in the world between 1999 to 2000 with iconic Suzuki fairings.

Suzuki’s motorcycles are some of the highest regarded of the Japanese range, main contenders with the GSX-R, Hayabusa, SV650 and V-Strom to name a few. They all have iconic Suzuki fairings and build quality that rivals most other motorcycle brands. 

Over the years Suzuki has evolved and adapted to overcome problems with incredibly complex machines that have been designed to be simple for the user. There is truly some incredible engineering that has gone into the designs behind Suzuki automobiles and their experience of over 100 years of manufacturing complex products has laid testament to their ingenuity and success. 

Tips for Motorcycle Fairings Road Safety

Paint Colour

The colour that your fairings are can make a huge difference to your visibility at both day and night. With the mass production of matt black fairings it is sometimes very hard to see motorcycles on the road. This is now counteracted, especially in Europe by daytime running lights and the use of reflectors, but even in the day it can be hard to distinguish certain colours. For example, if the majority of your riding is at night, it is probably inadvisable to have a black bike, however in the daytime, this isn’t so much of an issue. Also, matt paint can be somewhat dangerous too. Matt colours do not reflect as much light due to the rough surface of the paint, which give it the visual effect of being dull. This means in the dark, lights will not reflect off of your bike as much as they would if it was a gloss paint.

Colour of Your Gear

Many people tend not to think about the colour of the gear they wear, however from personal experience in the motorcycle trade, I know that most people will want gear that will match their bike. This is okay up to a point, but you are much safer if your gear is in contrast to the colour of your bike. This means that if your bike is not visible against a certain background, your body is, and vice versa. Many people will find that the majority of motorcycle equipment comes in black, or black. This is sometimes not the case, don’t just have a look at what your local store has in stock, ask them for a catalog, as there is usually more colours in a certain style available. The staff should be more than happy to assist you in getting the right gear and if they’re not, then I suggest you look elsewhere.

Damage to Fairings

Most riders at some point are going to damage their motorcycle. You need to know when it is time to do something about that damage, and it’s usually down to common sense. For example if your fairings are hanging off your bike and flapping around at 30mph, you probably want to remove and replace them as soon as possible. But also remember that your fairings also offer you wind protection and alter the handling of your bike. For example, if you remove your fairings on one side because they are damaged, it is probably wise to remove the other side too if you can’t replace them straight away. This is because the aerodynamics of the bike will change, and may make it unstable. Also, if you do remove fairings, think about things that are exposed after this. I know on my motorcycle, that if I remove all of my fairings, there are several sharp edges that become exposed and mounting points stick out all over the frame. This is a danger to me, but also to people around me should I have an accident. Also remember that fairings offer you some protection during a crash, they can stop your legs getting stuck under the bike by offering a buffer. Finally, fairings protect your bike should you crash, it is cheaper to replace your fairings than to replace your frame.

R6 Motorcycle Fairings

The 2008-onward model of the famous Yamaha YZF R6 has had many upgrades to blast in into the top spot of the 600cc class. Indeed, the development team under project leader Kouchi Amano has implemented knowledge from Moto-GP. The focus for the 2008 model year was an refined balance between handling and rigidity. In other words, Yamaha targeted to make the R6 handle better on twisty tracks or small country roads and at the same time to improve stability at higher speed. To reach this target, the team modified the bike’s backbone, the die cast aluminum frame. It was not changed completely and you would have to look close to notice the differences to the previous model, and is not visible by looking at the R6 fairings, but the changes are very influential on the rigidity of the bike. 

The cross member between the to main spars was removed. This needed a countermeasure, so the thickness of the steering head and the swing arm pivot was been increased, as well as the frame’s wall thickness; and the internal ribbing was changed. Consequently they needed to create a different rigidity of the swing arm. It looks pretty much the same, but in fact it is a totally different part. 

Yamaha added ribs to the inside of the cast portion and the end portion and used forged aluminium instead of extruded material. If you look closer to the front fork you might spot the changes there. Yamaha redesigned the under bracket and the fork outer tube strength has been changed. These fundamental changes make the YZF-R6 handle more sharply and make the bike more exciting to ride.

Unusually, they made the rear sub frame from Magnesium. It is a rare case to use such a delicate material on a major structural part of a regular production bike. But the Yamaha are not about compromising. Yamaha simply go for the best. The rear frame holds the redesigned R6 fairings and seat. Again not a totally different looks, but fine adjustments were made to it. 

The rider position has changed slightly forwards as well as handle bar position was moved forwards and a little lowered. The rider will be sitting more “in the machine” with centre of gravity moved a little forward. Riders with race experience know that this improves handling and grip on the front end. As the R6 is a high-rpm engine, YCC-I makes the power delivery even more dramatic, improving power feel from mid-range to 14,500 rpm. This effect is particularly noticeable at high rpm when the secondary injectors kick in. Based on rpm and the degree of throttle opening, YCC-I instantly switches the air funnel length from long to short. This changes the intake pulse frequency, results in improved cylinder filling and higher power output.

As a result, the new R6 has a wider, more linear power band. Or, what riders will call a wider high rpm fun zone! To work with the new YCC-I, also the exhaust camshaft timing as well as ignition timing was modified and the exhaust pipe joints have increased diameter. To make sure that this high performance engine will run in a reliable way for tens of thousands of kilometres in daily use, several engine parts have been strengthened, such as connecting rod bearing, plain bearings, cam chain and tensioner and so on. With all these many technical improvements, lets not forget the new styling, this reminds of the modifications to upper R6 fairings and body parts. The YZF-R6 from 2008 has kept the same identity, but it just looks more neat and sharper then before.

Ducati 1098, Back on Track

The Ducati 1098 was made in three models, the 1098, 1098S and 1098R. Production started in 2007 and ceased in 2009. The 1098 was debatably the best Ducati since the original 916. It is a pure, blood red racing machine and is sports bike heaven.

The 1098 pushes out 160bhp with top speed of 180mph, earning its rightful place in the highest insurance group with 0-60mph in less than 3.0 seconds. The 1098’s Testastretta Evoluzione is the most powerful production V-twin engine ever made. It has 92ftlbs of torque at only 8000rpm and has a huge increase in power compared to the 999 and believe it or not, the 1098R is even faster with 180bhp.

Not only is it a speed demon, the 1098 has amazing feedback on the road. The front forks are perfection, which combined with the neutral chassis makes it arguably the best 1000cc class road bike ever. The 1098 will do exactly what you tell it to, whether you’re hanging off the edge or just having a relaxing ride. If you’re looking to spend an extra £2000 ($3400) on top of the £11000 ($18700) price tag, why not go for the 1098S. It comes with Ohlins suspension, upgraded brakes and of course an upgraded engine. But that would just be silly.

The 1098 is not without its looks. The opposite in fact. It is beautiful. The Ducati 1098 fairings are simply amazing. Sharing design elements with the older 998 than with its predecessor the 999, the 1098 has horizontally placed headlights and a non-integrated exhaust system. It also has the single-sided swingarm from the 916 and 998. The Ducati 1098 fairings came in three colours in true Ducati style. Black, red, yellow and if you went for the special edition 1098S Tricolore they have the Italian flag. In 2009 Ducati produced the 1098R Bayliss Limited Edition due to his win of the 2008 Superbike World Championship. With only 500 units produced, this bike boasted a 180bhp engine, Ducati Traction Control, similar 5-spoke wheels to Bayliss’ original and of course a bit of carbon fibre.

The Ducati 1098’s build quality is sublime as usual. The stigma around Ducati’s being unreliable has been blown out of the water by this machine. With people taking the bike on long tours and having no major problems with the exception of the odd flat tyre. However, the 2007 models did have the occasional problem where they would stall upon slowing down, but this fault disappeared in the 2008 and 2009 models altogether. With straight reliability the 1098’s are on par with any of the Japanese models of the time. So no worries about breaking down and having huge maintenance bills every year. Ducati also implement the “Good Will Warranty” where they will replace any faults in the bike that have not been caused by the user.

Overall, the Ducati 1098 is one of the best Ducati’s to be produced in a while. It has blown the 999 out of the water and made a huge improvement to an outdated design, whilst still incorporating the Ducati spirit. This bike got Ducati back on track, and their bikes have been brilliant ever since.

5 Must See Motorcycle Fairing Customizations

Carbon Fibre Fairings

This is the must have material for fairings. It’s light, strong and looks awesome. Most race bikes these days use carbon fibre due to its weight, but people put it on their road bikes because, well, it looks amazing. Now carbon fibre is nice in small amounts, but covering your whole bike with it sometimes looks a bit silly. In my opinion change a few parts, your rear hugger, your indicators, maybe some other small bits, but not the whole bike. Also you need to consider whether you’re going to buy real carbon fibre, or whether you will wrap your bike. Vinyl wrapping with carbon fibre is cheaper, but unless done well, will ruin the look of your bike.

Race Replica Fairings

Have you ever thought that your plain black Fireblade or R1 just simply isn’t flashy enough? Change the look of your fairings to match your favourite Moto GP race bike, or even choose your favourite childhood racer’s colours. Make your bike your own, don’t feel like you have to stick with the same old boring colours that the factory spits out, and if you’re worried about resale value, then why not keep your old fairings? Wrap them up safe for when you sell the bike on, or in case you damage your new fairings. Remember, everyone loves a decent race replica.


These have long been an easy way to spruce up your tired looking bike for pennies. The good thing about decals is they can be removed and if they start to look tatty, you can just replace them. Some people even go as far as ‘sticker bombing’ their bike. If you want your decals to last as long as possible, make sure you follow the guidelines on applying the stickers. If there are none, make sure you clean and dry the spot you wish to apply the decal, and make sure to remove all bubbles from under the decal. To make them last even longer, spray over the decal with some clear lacquer, this will help make it resistant to petrol as well.

Vinyl Wraps

This is a cheap way of changing the entire colour scheme of your bike, or even just one or two panels that have been damaged. The wraps come in many different colours and designs and are easily applied to your motorcycle. However, if done improperly they will not look very good. A main advantage of vinyl wraps is that they can be removed, and will somewhat protect your original paintwork from the elements.

Removal of Fairings

The naked bike is very popular at the moment, but if you can’t afford to change your bike, why not remove some of the fairings? The good thing about this modification is that your can play around with the look of your bike very easily and get it the way you want. If you don’t like the new look, or want to go back, simply just screw your old fairings back in place!

5 Things You Didn’t Know About CBR Motorcycle Fairings

  1. The First Honda CBR was Designed by Tadao Baba
    The Honda CBR900RR Fireblade was the first CBR bike in the range, designed in 1992 by the famous Honda designer, Tadao Baba. Baba was given the task of creating the ultimate superbike. He started off with choosing a weight of 192kg, and original plans were to use the 750cc engine from previous Honda models. Baba made a commotion with other designers as he tried to stick to this weight; this meant redesigning parts rather than using old ones. Later on they decided to put an 893cc engine in the 900RR, making it lighter than an existing 750cc, but more powerful. The CBR900RR made a new baseline for sports bikes and was so far ahead of its time that it can still keep up with the newer sports bikes.
  1. Stock Honda Fairings Require a Certain Repair Products, Made by 3M

Due to the secret composition of Honda’s fairings, most products used to repair ordinary ABS fairings will not work properly due to the composition of the plastic. Therefore, when working on your original fairings, ensure that you contact 3M and verify that you are using the correct products, as using incorrect ones could damage your fairings. If you have aftermarket fairings that are made from ABS you do not require special products, as long as they are suitable for ABS.

  1. Most CBR Fairings Will Fit on Previous Models
    Over the years CBR fairings have changed shape quite a bit, thus changing the overall shape of the bike. However, the frames haven’t changed that much and this is what the fairings fit onto. It is actually possible to fit aftermarket fairings from later models onto their predecessors, usually with not much work. Within some models the aftermarket fairings will simply fit onto the existing frame, however, in some cases, it may be necessary to change other parts to match, or buy undrilled fairings, so that the holes are guaranteed to line up.
  1. The Aerodynamics in the late CBR Models Come From Honda’s GP Race Development Team
    This isn’t much of a surprise, but the aerodynamics that are used to perfect the fairings in Honda’s Moto GP bikes, has filtered down through the designers to the latest models to make them as aerodynamic and stable as possible at high speeds. Think about it, if a bike that’s going over 200mph can still be stable, so can yours. Also it makes the road legal versions look super cool when you’re driving down the road, especially when the bike is a race replica.
  1. When Fairings are Made, They Don’t Need to be Sanded Before Painting
    When fairings are first made the plastic that has been used has not been previously treated, therefore leaving a blank canvas. All the factory needs to do to paint these fairings is use an etching primer. This primer wears away the surface of the material, like you would by sanding your fairings. Therefore, creating the surface needed for the next few layers of paint. This reduces costs and labour, as less time is needed to paint the fairings.

Removing and Replacing Honda CBR 1000RR Fairings

Removal and replacement of the Honda CBR Fairings can be done very easily. This guide is to help you with the removal of the fairings, to make it seem like a less daunting task.

To remove the Honda CBR fairings, start by removing the two hex bolts on either side of the lower fairing with an allen key. Once all four bolts are removed the fairings may be removed by pushing it towards the rear of the bike.

To remove the main fairings, the nose cone cover above the front fender. Removing the plastic rivets does this. Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the rivet in the middle, and either side, this panel can then be removed. This will then give you access to the fixings for the main fairings.  There are then two screws on the inside of the main fairings, one near the bottom, and one near the top. These need to be removed. Then remove the allen bolt on the outer side of each fairing and the one by the handlebars. Finally, remove the screws on the inside of the panels on each side, and then the fairings can be removed.

To remove the nose cone, first undo all of the bolts holding the windscreen in place, and remove the mirrors, ensuring they are disconnected. Then remove the bolts holding the speedometer. Once these have all been removed you can pull the nose cone away. To replace the nose cone ensure you remove all of the fittings inside of them, and transfer them to the new one.

To remove the tail, start by removing the pillion and rider seats. Once this is complete you need to remove the seat strap and the four bolts on top of the rear seat panel. Then the seat panel can be removed by sliding it towards the rear. Once this is complete, unplug the indicators, rear light and number plate light. Then you can remove the rear light by undoing the two screws holding it in place. Once this is done, remove the four M5 allen bolts and remove the under tray. There is then two Phillips screws holding the inner tool tray in place. Once this is done, you can remove the tail unit by pulling it towards the rear of the bike.

To remove the rear hugger, simply undo the hex bolts, including the one under the rear shock absorber and slide it towards the rear of the bike, this will release it from the bike. To remove the front fender, undo the 6 bolts holding it in place, it can then be slid out between the forks. There is no need for the removal of the front wheel. 

Congratulations! You have now removed your old fairings. Take care when installing your new Monster Fairings and I suggest you lay your old fairings out against your new ones to ensure they are correct before installing, but also to ensure any fixings and fittings that need to be transferred are done at this point to save you more work along the way. Good luck!

How to store your motorcycle for the next season

There are several things you can do to make sure your motorcycle is ready for the new season in the best condition possible. This however, requires you to perform a couple of hours maintenance before you put your baby down for winter. In this article I will go over how to make sure everything runs smoothly when the weather starts to warm up again.

Firstly, you need to make sure you have to right supplies for the job. You’re going to need the following:

  • A battery charger that can be safely used for the length of time you are storing the motorcycle.
  • Cleaning supplies including bike cleaner and paint wax, engine cleaner, degreaser, chain cleaner, chain lube/wax, ACF-50, WD-40 and the necessary cleaning tools.
  • Fuel cleaning additive and stabilizer, this is to ensure the fuel lasts the winter.
  • A bike cover, even if the bike is being stored in a garage.
  • Oil and a new oil filter, for best results use an engine cleaner that can be added to your oil before you perform the oil change.
  • Brake fluid and clutch fluid.
  • Coolant
  • If you don’t have a center stand, paddock stands can be useful to lift your tires off the ground to prevent damage.

The first step you will need to do is to prepare your engine for storage. Use a fuel-cleaning additive to clean out your carbs or fuel injectors as per the instructions. This will make sure your engine is in tiptop condition. After this, either empty your fuel tank or run the engine till you are out of fuel. Then fill the tank up with new fuel and add a fuel stabilizer as per the instructions.

The next step is your oil, if possible, add an oil cleaning additive as per the instructions before you perform your full oil change, including the filter. If storing the bike for longer periods (i.e. over six months) remove the spark plugs and pour a table spoon of fresh engine oil inside, then turn the engine over a few times before replacing the spark plugs to spread the oil around, this will ensure your piston and cylinder rings don’t seize. Also ensure you change your brake fluid and clutch fluid at this point and bleed the entire system, as any moisture that may have got in could damage the system. Finally, change your coolant, as old coolant can form deposits within the engine.

Your next task is to clean the bike. You need to make sure than the bike is cleaned and dried entirely, as any moisture left on the bike can cause rusting. If you can, remove any fairings you may have and clean these separately. While you have them off make sure you give the engine a good scrub. Once you have dried the bike, give any metal parts a good spray with ACF-50 to prevent corrosion. Make sure you give the chain a good clean and lube so that it doesn’t corrode while in storage. Finally, apply some wax to your paintwork to keep it in the best condition possible.

One of the last steps is to connect up your battery charger. This can either be done whilst in the bike, or removed from the bike. If you have an acid battery, make sure the cells are topped up. Some battery chargers are able to recondition low batteries, so can be useful throughout the year, not just for storage. 

Finally, ensure your bike is in a safe place, if possible, using a center stand, paddock stands, or even blocks of wood, raise your tires off the ground to alleviate stress on the tires and suspension, also make sure your tires are at the correct pressure, as low temperatures can change the pressure in the tires. Then put your cover over the bike and say goodbye until next year. 

Must Have Motorcycle Fairing Kits

Fairing kits come in many different designs. Whether you want to turn you bike into a café racer, a street bike or even strip it down so it’s naked, there is still a need to consider your fairings. Another reason you would need a fairing kit is if you use your bike on track days a lot, or if you ride it everyday. This guide should help you to choose the latest and greatest of fairing kits available, and help you on your path to bringing your bike back to life.

The latest must have fairing kits for track riders are made from Carbon Fibre. Known in the trade as Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP), this material is the latest in making your fairings as strong and as light as possible. The aesthetics of carbon fibre fairings are also beautiful. They can be painted like normal fairings in the same way you would paint fiberglass fairings, but to be honest, they are so beautiful; you may just want to keep them free from paint. 

However, most of you will be after ABS fairings, and this will be the majority of the fairings I will talk about. These fairings are what comes as standard on your bike. They are strong and not too heavy. Plus they’re also easy to fix should they break. 

Most fairing kits come in race colours, this is the mainly for the supersport bikes as people are after a way to make their bike stand out, and what’s better than making it look like your favourite MOTOGP bike? These will be the must have for people that are not looking for something to make their bike lighter and faster, but to improve how it looks, maybe if you have a few broken fairings after an accident, or your paint has deteriorated over time. This is the way to go to spruce up your bike for the summer.

The next lot of fairings I will be talking about is the new, all the rage matt coloured fairings. These are becoming more and more standard on newer bikes due to advances in paint over the past few years. These fairings look very nice on all bikes, and may even be a way to bring your older bike into the 21st century. These can even be used to replace your old, heavy dustbin fairings.

Finally, if a whole fairing kit is out of your price range, a good choice for upgrading your bike is using an LED lighting kit. These can be home made and consist of waterproof LED strips, but these fairing lighting kits can make quite a difference to your bike. There are kits available online that can even be controlled by your phone using Bluetooth. This gives your bike a sense of colour at night, and can make you stand out more when out at night. Though do make sure if using them on the road that the law is abided by, as each country and in the US each state has different laws surrounding the colour of light you may display while on public roads.

As Seen On
