first wreck (pictures added)

had a nice mint 08 1krr and i was turning and hit a nice little clump of pebbles and sand from where there was an accident that i didnt even see(trust me i keep a look out for this stuff) and the back slipped out and it layed down and i got off of it and it flipped over to the other side and messed up all the ferings pretty good and broke the windscreen and both mirrors and ripped off one rear set. and i got away good just a scraped knee. so who makes good ferings for a good price

That sucks man... sorry to hear it. I've done just about the same thing.

If quality and fit of the fairings are really important to you, you would probably be happiest with a nice set of used oem plastics. No aftermarket fairings are the same quality as oem from what I have seen.

I ran a set from auctmarts fairings for a while, and they actually fit well and held up better than I expected. I've never had anyone notice that they weren't oem, but it was obvious to me. Every time I've taken my bike apart, something would break. Usually just a small tab or something that wasn't a big deal, but enough to be annoying. For the money, I was very happy with them. I knew there was a good chance I would drop it at the track, so I couldn't justify the big bucks of the oem stuff.

Sorry to hear about your get off, that sucks bro. Glad you're OK. Been there twice,once on track, once on street, not fun. Old saying goes: It's not if you go down, it's when.


If you can't run with the big dogs,
stay on the f@ckin' porch.
