Race Plastics List

I am looking at getting a set of race plastsics for the upcoming race season. I know of the Sharkskins, Hotbodies and afew others. I would like to put together alist of all the manufactures who make them for our bikes so I can make an informed decision.

Thanks for your help.

In everything that I've ever seen for our bikes, it can't be any truer that "you get what you pay for". Time and time again people say go with Sharkskinz or Armour Bodies. They are more expensive because they are better construction and way easier to put on the bike because more precise fitment. My HotBodies was really tough to put on and every painter that I've been talking to doesn't even want to touch my race plastics.

If you're on a budget, which is always the case, the cheaper ones get the job done.

Cheetah was some of the worst fitting, poorest quality I have ever seen. When you compare it to Sharskinz you would not even consider Cheetah. Good luck with it...

I currently have FRP bodywork on the racebike (CBR600RR). Ordered from one of my sponsors:
http://www.moto-plaza.com/catalog/de...hp?cPath=62_65

The plastic is good construction, relatively light weight and comes with a finished coat of color (White/Black/Red) and clearcoat. You can also order them unfinished.

They fit well and are easy to put on and remove. 6 zeus fasteners for the belly pan, 2 short screws (for the upper cowl stay), and 2 zeus fasteners for the upper cowl. and 4 screws for the tail section. I had a lowspeed lowside last year and just stop drilled and zip-tie stitched the cracks back together. It seems to be holding strong.

For conveinence, I really liked the bodywork Harc-Pro had on it before. I'm not sure of the maker, but think it is also a Japanese manufacturer. The key identifying traits of the bodywork were that it had a zeus fastened plate on the tank peice that allowed easy access to the ECU. Also the last half of the tail section could be sperated with 3 zues fasteners in order to easily access the exhaust hanger bracket as well as the rear brake resivoir.

I'll do some research and see if I can find out the maker if anyone is interested.

Catalyst composites makes a very nice set. Fits very well and requires very minimal prep for paint. Great stuff.

Anyone on here have clearance problems with their 05's. Our whole team ran 05's and we had to remove our front fenders to keep the upper from hitting the fender and limiting the travel of the suspension. And then even with a big bump it would hit the tire! We used Armour bodies and GP composites. We currently have GP Composites making new 05/06 sets with extra clearance.

i used to work at and first hand i can tell you the amout of work we put into the body pieces! I would personaly go over every little bubble in the fiberglass and the kevlar to ensure there wasn't even 1 bubble :) and we'd flex alot of the pieces to ensure that they'd flex the way we designed them to. i wish OEM stuff was that good.

if their quality hasnt changed since i've been there i'd go with them any day of the week.

Cheetah here.


For under $500, it really ain't bad. Seriously.

And yes, I have used Sharkskinz too. (I still have my crashed Sharkskinz tail, which I'll probably have repaired.) It really is among the top 3 if money is no object. But it is.
