I am asking to see if there would be a market for them. To keep it short, I plan on investing in a CNC machine, a Miller welder, and some other manufacturing tools to for X reasons. Yes, it's expensive.
There will be a market but I doubt it will be big enough for you to break even.

You don't need any of that to make fairings.
Ill try to dig up an old thread I remember of. The guy made his own fairings and they looked sick. Your best bet is to learn shay is needed to make them. Then its a trial and error process to find the best material for the cost and find the best fit. Once you get that out of the way its pretty cheap to manufacture fiberglass/carbon fiber pieces.

Go fast parts:
Pipercross race filter, Leo sbk slip on, 05 header mod, pcv, bauce racing ecu flash, agg smog block offs, quick turn throttle, 520 rk gxw chain -1-1 renthal sprockets, ebc hh pads
, Shorai battery.

Robby moto sbk rearsets, woodcraft clip ons & sliders, armor bodies sbk fairings, db screen, vortex v3 gas cap, keyless ignition mod, agg sbk res kit,

Re: What's A Fair Price?

You definitely need a mold for using abs plastic to get OEM fitment. That, or it's going to be many man hours on 1 piece.

Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!

I love my R6, but I'm ashamed... I need an '08 R1!
