Re: Fiat fairings?

They're not bad. The fake carbon fiber stickers they use though ... I'd recommend messaging them and tell them not to put them on.

Most of mine, at the tip of the stickers, they are sticking up above the clearcoat. x_x

Fitment is pretty good though of the entire fairing. Had no real issues putting them on.

Depends on what your definition of "luck" is.

The decals that go under the clear coat. Things like "R6" or YAMAHA, or whatever you get on there.

That depends on how anal retentive you are, and how much attention to detail you have... And how tolerant you are of modifying some pieces.

Yep. Some of the stickers like FIAT seem to not be under the clearcoat.

The carbon fiber stickers, I wish I knew what I knew now, because I would've not had them use them. I think it actually makes the fairings look gaudy, and as I said, they aren't perfectly stuck down so little pieces of the sticker at the tip stick above the clearcoat.

You're kidding right. Fiat is just a sticker. Not even painted on. Wow. Kinda don't want them now:/

Most intricate designs like that are stickers dude... Even on the professional's bikes. Do you realize how much time it would take to paint shit like that?


IIRC, when Rossi was with Yamaha (for the first time) he used to apply the stickers to his bike himself out of superstition.
