plans for my race bike

well, i have been dying to go to a track day, and i think i am gonna do it soon.
i was thinking of going with Shark Skin race plastics, but there a little expensive, whats a comparable brand, i would like true race plastics, not the ones that still have the impression for turn signals
this is the color combo i want to do, what do you guys think?

Sharkskinz really are great to work with. All you do is drill and mount them and they fit really well. Armour Bodies are supposed to be really good as well, but I have no experience with them

Go with Godfather :
Contact Greg Melka on the Jennings GP board (he's the moderator)

They have quality stuff, it's very inexpensive ($400 or less) and you're helping racers fund their habits. Greg has just become a dealer so it helps him too.

That is the '05 and bodywork is limited as to who is making it.

The highest quality I have found are Catalyst Racing Composites. DuHamel's and Zemkes bikes actually use their bodywork and they are the stuff that is sold to the public. These were made directly from the HRC bodywork for American Honda. Say you are a racer as that will get you a 10% discount.

Armour Bodies also makes really nice stuff.

Hotbodies may be in production with theirs, but I am not sure if they are making it without the headlight indention. They are also not the best quality but they get me by.

SharkSkins come out nice when painted as well.

Also, what's up with the 3000? #'s are up to 3 digits and have to be applied for through your racing org..LOL. And you can mount them in the center if you want. Most people put them to one side or the other. There is also a regulation size for the numbers and is usually 8" front 6" rear.

If you are going to race, the number plate backgrounds need to be yellow for AM and Wht for expert.

What would look cool the way you have the colors laid out is if you did the front half of the fender red on a slant like you have the lower and the tail matched up for. It would balance the look of the bike. Even better would be if you did the air intakes where they stick out on the upper in red to a point at the rear. There would be two red streaks to the right of the openings on the upper. That would create a nice balanced feel. And you would want to do the honda logo in the same red on the tank and in black on the red lower to bring it all together.
