dimce: idk how it is up there but down here when there is an accident they put down this real fine sand with a bunch of little pebbles in it to soak up oil in gas.. well when there is normally a thin layer of it its no problem to go thru it, well there was some in the middle of the turn all the way across my lane and little did i know there was a dip in the road that went all the way across both lanes and about a foot wide and 3'' deep where they ran something over the road and that dip was compleatly full of the stuff and i went over it no gas or brake and the back just looped out and i layed her down and the tires started to grab so i just let go and slid away and the tires caught and rolled over to the other side and it smashed up both sides..
I am really sorry to hear that mister.hope you will fix her up soon and i am waiting pictures!
topher: how is the fitment of your china specials? would you get another set?
i have read mixed reveiws most good though all i really need faring wise is the front and rear fairings. the right mid has some rash not to bad or deep i could fill it and the left mid is fine it snapped the frame slider off and some how didnt mess up the fairing at all idk how but the front and back are garbage now
it would be the same price to get those two used oem as it would be to get a china set and then i still have to get my whole bike painted
Sorry, Just saw this. They fit surprisingly well. They came from auctmarts. You do have to be very careful when taking them on and off. They are not as flexible or strong as oem for sure. The little tabs break really easily. I don't ride on the street anymore, but if I did, I would definitely consider another set at some point. Check out my for sale thread and there are pictures of my bike with the auctmarts set installed.
Dang, she doesn't look that bad to be honest...at least you're able to see all the damages (hopefully no hidden ones)...Good luck with the repair champ
