    I'm off to Parcmotor next week for 3 days on track and my engine isn't finished on my trackbike so I've have had some work done on the 1098 and I'm taking that instead.

    I dropped the bike in with Nelly a couple of weeks ago and this is the bike finished today.
    New Chinese fairings and red tank fitted, sigma slipper clutch, K-tech ssk kit, Penske rear shock, TRW rearsets, twin front brakelines and gearing altered.
    I have to say a big thank you to Nelly for sorting everything at short notice with me keep dropping additional items for him to fit before the bike drop off deadline. Top bloke and very reasonable price as well.

    Liking the fairing mate. Was thinking of getting a cheap set as another spare track set.

    What's the quality like?

    Neil fitted them and he was pretty impressed. I paid about £400 for them and they came with all the infill panels as well.
    The paint job is really good and there are loads of designs to choose from.
    The ABS is more brittle than OEM so I don't hold out much hope for them in an off but fibreglass fairings and a paint job would cost more and would fair no better if they hit the tarmac.

    Won't be racing this year as I'm still deciding on which bike i want to use next - I did think of a 1198 or panigale r but not yet decided. Btw - you should get a better clutch cover - the one from JHP offers much better protection.

    Either would be a good choice in my eyes. The clutch cover came fitted on the bike but I will look at the JHP one as I need to add more crash protection with my track record. :wink:

    Where did you buy the fairings, if you don't mind sharing? I was thinking about getting dedicated track fairings for my 1098S as well.

    I bought them off ebay from China. There are lots to choose from.
    I had to pay the import duty as well which was about £60.
