Still assessing the damage and will know more when I’m home, but most definitely the middle cowl, Lower bellypan, tail cowl, maybe tank cover (if I can’t figure out a way to get the dirt scratches off the paint)What parts do you need?
That's certainly good news. Thanks for letting us know.Are you saying Auctmarts has $100 shipping? I've purchased these before and shipping is included.
Maybe you're on a different site, but here's a snip for their site:
Just zip ties, this odd plastic concoction seems to not work with any known bonding system other than the paint they use.So, add these to the shopping list:
Since I live in Florida where the sun is apparently only 50 miles away from the planet, I also choose to forgo the Chinese stuff for this exact reason (as well as others pointed out).The strange thing about that is plastic for molding is not expensive. They might be using left over decades old ABS stock or possibly even recycled plastic.
Paint, at least good quality paint, is much more expensive. I would be willing to bet the paint they use is also cheap low grade stuff and will chip, peel, crack, or fade over time.
Molding casts are expensive to make and take a fair amount of maintenance or you will have issues with the finished product. Also Injection molding speed and temperatures are critical
Either way I'd pass on any knock off plastics for my bikes regardless of cost. It's the price of riding (and crashing) a sport bike
The frame and engine case sliders are a must IMO. One of the first things I put on every bike I have owned. Just a drop in the driveway can cause $$$$ of damage including a cracked engine case.Talking about crashing (or dropping), would frame (body) sliders and lever guards help at all?
If the plastics don’t touch maybe. In my case, I screwed up an Apex on a corner and ended up losing the front in a mud patch and went down. The mud caked up all inside the slots of the fairings but I was able to bang it out since OEM is pretty pliable.Talking about crashing (or dropping), would frame (body) sliders and lever guards help at all?
