So I was wondering (when I should have been riding) why there aren't a lot of fairing schemes for other brand models such as the R6, ZX-6R and GSX-R as compared to our CBR's. I think it's because a lot of schemes don't gel too well with their shapes?

Some of it has to do with the tank as well I think, especially some of the older models which had full metal tanks and no cover which meant getting a customised scheme would result in repainting a tank to match it.

I think the CBR lends itself well to pretty much any scheme compared to the others, what do you think? Although a CBR with a Kawasaki green would look a bit odd. I can't picture a ZX-6R with most of the schemes some of the members here have.

Anyone here have any other models with outrageous schemes?

Its the tank.


People who are only willing to spend 600 dollars on a full fairing kit most certainly aren't willing to spend 600 dollars to have their tank painted to match.

I never thought about it, but yeah, the plastic tank cover is probably the biggest factor. Some ZX-6Rs have a semi plastic cover as well so I do see some kits for them.

Since watching some racing, I do find liveries on the wrong bike types to be a little annoying.
