    I do not have it figured out yet.
    First I need to find out the right combination of reinforcement. I am using fiber glass-CF mix for now, than I will replace the CF to Carbon-Kevlar.
    Than ones it is mounted, I need to test it for wind protection and if it is satisfactory than I can offer it for sale.[​IMG]

    nice work ...... very nice :thumb

    sell it for 1/3 the price of the BC fairing (sans headlights) and I'd buy it

    offer stock tank and IMS option?

    Those fenders look f-ing awesome.

    +1 on this. I like my BC fairing, but it cost way too much scratch for what I really got out of it. And it doesn't line up too well with the IMS tank.

    I'm following this thread! :lurk
