You get what you pay for.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

A bike needs fairings to be road-worthy?

If there's any options get you up to Shimano 105 drive train, but possibly ditch disk brakes or shifter, I would seriously check them out. Not qutie sure what the appeal of disk brakes are. Regular bike brakes are essentially disk brakes, you're just using the rim as your rotor. Unless you're spending beaucoup bucks and getting a hydraulic setup, I would think it's going to feel pretty much the same.

I will look into it...I've actually heard the disc are worth it, better modulation and you don't risk popping a tire due to heating up the rims (inner tubes) on hard braking. I will say that it might be more worth it on a mountain bike...???

The FX 7.2 Disc is only 500 for MSRP...

And yes, Steve, we all know your feelings on paying retail... I'm trying not to.

Thats the same question I am asking myself.....i think he will pass a track body without headlights so I am trying to figure out what direction to go in because I have 3 bikes now that need to pass.

You'll definitely need lights, but not necessarily fairings.
