Race Fairings

I'd like to use my F4 on the track next year and want to buy some race fairings. I saw some old threads but want to see what guys are using now. I looked at the SharkSkinz, and I have to ask are they worth around $1,000. There are some ebay sellers offering fairings for $500-$600. I know it is not the same quality as the SharkSkinz but is the extra cash justified?

SharkSkinz are the best...you get what you pay for. Also very durable and repairable after a crash....don't ask me how I know..

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Catalyst Composites! The best in the business. At least as high quality as Sharkskinz and better priced.
The also have an additional vent in the sides for better cooling.

I saw a Ducati 1098 with after market skins from a company called Niceskins or Niceskinz. It was pre-painted with all the Xerox decals cleared over.

What I like about the Niceskinz is that the item is made of plastic rather than fibre glass. So the material is very similar to OEM plastics.

I'm trying to find the contact to see if they have fairings for the MV.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!
