body kit for F4 SPR

i'm taking my SPR baby to the track next month. i think i need to take her to her birth place after all. but u guys recommend any brand/dealer to get the fairing stuff? i'd put my factory fairings back so the kit w/ minimal mod will be the best. thanks guys

I got mine from Casoli (Italy)
I also brought a seat pad, and seat brackets, and the two front fairing stays.
That way I just unclip the seat (two clips) and two allen bolts for the fairing, and pop the track gear on. You have to unclip the front light lens (4 clips).Takes about 15 minutes and she is good to go.
Off for a track day this weekend myself.

Similary story: got my plastics from www.*********.com. Takes some work to set them up the first time, but it's pretty easy to get the bike prepped for track. Got the closed nose and closed tail.

Like MVASyd, I got the seat pad and brackets to make for a quick swap. In addition to the headlight, you'll need to unclip the brake light cable under the seat. You'll also want to unplug tail lights and remove the license plate holder entirely. Somewhere, I have a whole list of to-do's if you want it. Just PM me. It's pretty simple.

Make sure you visit your MV dealer on a patient day. To make the swap simple, you'll want to install a windscreen you your new nose (you'll need the hardware), you'll want the seat to be easy to pop on (you'll need the hardware), etc.

The hardest part was getting the tail to mount properly in the receiving clip near the tail. The initial setup is the trick - trouble is, many of the aftermarket plastics makers don't include the underseat mount that allows you to attach a post that goes into the subframe mount. So, you have to rig up some other solution. I'll send you some pictures if you run into this.

It's definitely worth the trouble, though. Enjoy!

Thanks I forgot to mention you will need a screen.
My fibreglass had all holes drilled (you need a set of female dzeus clips) and seat mounting brakets with nuts in the glass for the seat, pad and clips. so it was real easy.
Mine also are the closed front and rear so no light holes. Looks great. I am heading out to the shed now to convert her for track day Saturday.
