ABS fairings for track

These pre-painted fairings look pretty good but they're supposed to fit headlights and seat cowl for street: Bodywork Fairing Kit for Honda CBR600RR F5 Black Red Racing 2009 2010 2011 2012 | eBay

Do you know if they can be adapted to track? How do you cover those holes?

The chinese kits are made of a very brittle kind of plastic. They'll shatter on impact; best to stay with real fiberglass.

Like FC said, the money you save by not having to paint them will be negated first time you lay it down. They will end up dozens of tiny pieces.

The Optimal Racing fairings are very good for the price. Not as flexible as the top end Sharkskinz or Armour Bodies, but also half the price. They are durable, and fitment is great. They take a little prep work than the SS or AB sets if you're worried about a show quality finish, but if not, a quick scuff and spray will net you good results in the 15 feet/50 mph test.

Definitely recommend Optimals.

Also, look into MotoFairing.com I have bought a few sets from them and they have all been really nice.

Nice Motorbike!

Going to be switching over to a track only bike, and was looking at the Optimals. Makes me fell alot better to know the quality/price is good.

When in doubt. Flat out.

I have the optimals. I think they're fine, but I don't really have experience with other fiberglass to make a direct comparison. The fit was tight... and I couldn't really get rid of all gapping, but I don't care about making it perfect, so I don't really detract for that.
