Fairings

There is probably lots of threads on this already so apologies for making another.

Is there a place I can get an aftermarket set of fairings for a black 2010 F4? Has anyone used the Chinese fairings(don't shoot me for asking that)

I have a couple of manky panels; tail piece and a side piece and I'm on a bit of a budget.

Thanks

With MV panels, expect to get what you pay for.

I have used Chinese fairings on a Honda. They look great and are priced well. However, they are a thinner and more brittle plastic, so where flex is needed for locating tabs (perhaps not necessary on MVs) delicate care is needed.

I noted after a few months of normal riding that engine heat began to distort the colour. I did have adequate heat insulation, but this is a direct result of a poorer quality product giving poorer end-user satisfaction.

In the first few months I would have heartily recommended Chinese. Now though, I would urge you to stretch your budget or seek/wait for second hand.

Ok thanks. I did think they would be thinner but I thought with new heat shields on then they would probably hold any nasty heat issues.

I may just slowly replace them all for carbon pieces then. Bit by bit. I'm just not sure what to do at this stage as they seem hard to get hold of.

Is there any websites? I've spoken with Bennett's and they don't have any panels left in the black, unfortunately.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

I've only ever used Bennetts for the couple of small items I've needed. I have seen members recommend:
https://shop.startwintrading.com/en/products/f4

Based in Holland so shipping should not be too much of an issue - provided they have the parts at the right price.

Have you thought about having them resprayed by a professional? I had mine done and it was well worth it. Also try dream machine my friend had his R1 panels done and it was only about £500which he thought was good.

Thanks mate. Helped me out once again. Those prices though, they're crazy. Gonna have to have a think about this one.

I will second Dream Machine. Have personally used then for a, erm, Honda, but job was perfect match and perfect finish.

Won't be the cheapest, but we are treasuring a passion/pastime where 'cheap' just doesn't cut it.

Not to imply that I am some sort of "money bag" guy but, in my experience, the cost of putting a bike you really like back to right is quickly forgotten. I had a low speed fall over on gravel on my DB2 years ago - it had to the DB2 of course. The main fairing panel - when you could actually get them was over $5,000 - but they were long gone. After getting over the initial shock, I networked to a fellow Bimota guy, Bob Taddie, who put the thing completely back to right to the point that I can't remember which side it was. It was a fucking fortune but I could care less since the bike is perfect once again.

Good idea. I know a guy in the trade that may be able to help with actually. Didn't even think to go down that road 👍🍻
