Finding a good condition used set of Woodcraft, Sharkskin, hot boddies, etc is the best way to go.

But if you have to go new. Optimal seams to be the best bang for the buck. Don't hold up quite as well as the others mentioned, but can be repaired... just like the rest.

I've got armor bodies and have nothing but good things to say about them. Them and the sharkskinz come pre-primed and very smooth so it makes painting them a snap. They're a little more expensive though. The only difficult thing is they don't come pre-drilled so you have to spend a couple of hours mocking them up and drilling exactly where they need to go. The fit is fantastic and they're supposed to hold up in a crash quite well. I haven't tested that yet [knock on wood].

First off, try to use punctuation please. Its a lot easier to get a point across. I understood a general point of you need race glass but the rest is kind of a jumple.

I've got a set of optimals and love them. Crashed twice so far and they held up pretty well. No complaints and you really can't beat the price.

i have used optimal on the last 3 customers bikes ive built including my own. inexpensive and if you crash hard it doesnt matter what you have on there its going to be destroyed.
using optimal i keep my bodywork($375), paint job($300), and decals($100) around the $800 mark. here is my bike with fresh paint:



and after my crash at VIR:



and a customers 07 R6 i just finished building, (both w Optimal Bodywork)

Armor bodies makes the best track fairings!!! IMO

But they are around 800$

I have optimals which I got new for $350

I have crashed them once and they held up great!!!

I picked up a used set of optimals and a set of woodcraft clip ons for $200 from a member here a while back. They mounted great but are a little stiff. All in all I can't complain at that price. After a good paint job they came out great.
