Delkevic fairing review

Just order a fairing from delkevic today, 04/28/09.

Spoke with Luke on the phone yesterday to know what was the shipping cost for canadians resident, he wasent sure if it was free or not so he told me that he will call me back l8er that day (yesterday) .

I receive hes call today insted of yesterday and he coudn't give me an anwser as no one as order a fairing from Canada yet and he couldn't get an hold on his boss this week, so he took the decision to include shipping in the price (595$) for me (From Canada).

He estimate that the shipping will take 2 week , 3 at the most.
I'am waithing on the tracking number to fallow up this thread.

Sorry for my poor english , not my language :).

Update

The sellsman call me back today.
he explain to me that an order from a kit they have already in stock,the shipping time take arround 7 days.

Mine is a custom Low Gloss balck fairing , so i was disapointed to learn that it will take 3 weeks for the fairing to be complete, pluse another 7 days for shipping.

Patience,Patience,patience , is not my thing , but thats what i want so i'll work on it!!!

Make sure you let us all know how this turns out - 10 days is pretty good turn around, especially for custom paint, considering the alternative. Pics when you get them.

I picked up a 2003 upper cowl fairing from them yesterday... bought on ebay and shipped the same day.

After I get all my fairings de-decalled and painted flat black and installed, I'll be sure to share how it fits on the bike. Since it'll be installed with OEM plastics, it'll be interesting to see how it mates up to everything.

I'm hoping for the best :all_cohol

yeah , i'll look faward to hear from you about the fitting , cause its usualy the part where it can be trouble.

If all go well, this might hurt the japs, shipping time is amazing and pricing is awsome.

Bump

So there no progress on my fairing order , only been waithing for a week 1/2 and it seems so long.

I will update as soon as some progress are made.

Also heading my way is brand new stator cover/ New arrow header/ new PC3/New windscreen.

Now i'am broke for the summer :-( .

But riding is my passion so i dont mind , as long as can ride its all good.

Cheers

I'll take a picture of the fairing sometime this weekend and post it up here. I still haven't gotten it painted or dry fitted it or anything yet.

sorry about the delay...

So today I finally stripped my bike (I'm very lazy) and decided to take snap shots of the delkevic upper next to my stock (and slightly broken oem fairing). The screw bosses look pretty f'ing good, proportions seem the same.. overall I'm impressed. For $130 or $150 (I can't remember) and QUICK shipping, I'm happy.

I didn't dry fit it as I was over 8 beers deep and wasn't feeling like f'ing with the cables, air intake boxes, brackets, etc. But when I de-decal all my fairings and get them all flat blacked and ready to install, I'll take pictures of thie fitment, etc. I'll do that when I install my HIDs as well and show how well the headlights fit.

Anyways, here's ssome pictures of side by side, etc. Let me know if you guys want any other detailed pics. It might be a week or two before I get them all painted and installed. Hopefully faster as my bike is out of comission right now!

Glad someones trying these out. I've been scoping out the 05-06 upper for my 04 on eBay and was somewhat hesitant to order before I'd seen any reviews.
Keep us posted on how well they fit.

Package on the road.

First off , i'am a litle bit disapointed as i did ask the vendor (Luke) to send me pictures of the customs paint job i have order, he said he will try and i did insist , I want to see pics before the shipping... Once again he say he will try..


Now i did receive an e-mail today with a tracking a number , ERRR ! he gave me 12 numbers for the tracking and i needed 13 caracters with EMS delivery tracking services. And the vendor ended this e-mail saying " I will try for the pictures".
Wow , i whrote him back, -So mush for customers satisfacion, i dont need the pictures the fairing as been sent but thx anyway!!

So were off a bad start. On a pluse side, the fairing is on his way home. 7 buisness days and i will finally have it.(Hopefully)

I will investigate that third eye hole missing! ahh that is the 03 04 nose. I scared myself there.lol

Thx for checking.
Cheers

The third eye for the unit shown mounts at the bottom of the windscreen, at the base of the opening, there isn't a seperate opening like the later years.
