New Owner F3

Fellas,

Whats up I finally made the drive to Oregon and picked up my F3. I can thank this forum for helping me decide on getting this awesome bike. It does not have the latest map however engine is still very smooth and power is linear. It suffered a lowside so I'm having to do some minor work. I hoping to get guidance from you good folks on my best options. The bike needs a front fairing stay, front fairing and windscreen; I have the side and belly fairings althought they have varying degrees of rash and the tank needs to be repainted. This bike is going to be more or less track dedicated although I'd like street it once in a while. Here's my plan please make suggestions:

Front fairing stay/mount: Aftermarket vs oem

Aftermarket street fairings vs track fairings: Good brands w/o fitment issues

Air filter: do I need to buy both the long aftermarket tubular filter and screen filter as I airducts have no way to be attached unless I purchase the oem front fairing stay.

rear-sets: looking for GP shift

Thanks guys. I'll post pics when I get a chance

For the fairing, I'd go with Sharkskinz; that's what's on my bike and they fit.

I've just ordered Rizoma rear sets for my F3. I was looking at Lightech but they were more expensive and when I asked the guys at Motovation they said "The rearsets are comparable in both quality and adjustment. Both allow adjustment of approx. one inch up and back, and are made from solid billet aluminium." The Lightech have the options of folding foot pegs and toe pegs at an additional price and are the only rear sets with this option that I have found.

Emmevei125, I am pretty sure Rizoma has an adapter to make the pegs folding.

The Motovation guys indicated that the Rizoma didn't have a folding peg option and I couldn't find any reference to folding foot pegs when researching F3 rear sets with race pattern with the exception of the lightechh pegs. I'd be interested as the regulations require folding footpegs for road use.

Hi, I've ordered a fairing kit from these guys.

http://www.motoforzafairings.com/en/category

They offer Street or Race kits in the set. I'm expecting to fit them in the next couple of weeks (currently travelling) I've had a look when they arrived and they seem to measure up accurately to the original air ducts. Obviously proof will be in the fitting )
I'll let you know how things go but the service from these guys was great and getting them to Melbourne wasn't an issue. I went for the full road kit - but keep in mind their rear or "race seat" doesn't have the cut out for tail light or the ability to fit the original seat. This wasn't an issue for me as my existing fairings were fine in that respect.

Cheers.

Coming together gents. Got the Armour Body kit on and fit is A-FUCKIN-MAZING, excuse my French. Waiting on windscreen then to the painters. Decided to keep with original colors Red on top, silver, and red belly pan. Will post pics shortly. By the way, Rearsets from motodesigns out of LA are very well engineered and fitting them was a breeze, highly recommend them over the Standard fare.

Photos to come. Going to shop tomorrow to have ECU/map updated and hopefully to paint. Just about to pull trigger on front and rear suspension. Looking at the Mupo Evo Rear and FG Gub Zero Front Forks. Anyone have any feedback?
