Sharkskinz on Brutale?

It's been awhile since I posted up here, but the weather is starting to get nice again to enjoy riding.

I'm interested in doing some track days this year on the Brutale, but some of the tracks cater to the full fairing bikes.

I'm wondering if the F4 Sharkskinz will fit on it. Any ideas?

Are you handy with a tig welder? You will need the tabs on the frame.

I am sure there are more issues.

Hey Ryan...I took Gina to the track....you don't need no stinkin' fairing to go fast and enjoy the track.

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

Going fast is not the problem. It's going FASTER that has me interested in the airOdynamics.

Most tracks are really interested in the belly pan you don't need the full fairings... They just wanna make sure if your engine blows up the liquids go into some sort of collector. Oil on a motorcycle race track is not a pretty thing...

I'm thinking I may just go with a set of clip-ons for now.

Most race organizers require belly pan for fluid retention. Most track day organizers do not because it is mainly street bikes, the serious racers that might explode an engine already have a belly pan.....Ryan, at Roebling Road (Savannah) My Brutale was touching 152 at the end of the front straight. Tucked in to the gas tank and at just about red line in top gear I had no need for any more speed, so aerodyanmics wouldn't have helped.

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