Fit was great when compared to other bodywork, but still took an hour or two to dry-fit well before painting.

Anyway, highly recommended from me. I may pick up another set to paint this winter so I've got spares.

Just got my tracking info earlier today, parts will be here Monday. Not bad considering they were ordered late on Friday last week. Pics to follow along with fit review.

I'm running the same! Awesome race fairings, perfect fit, and after a highside, they look almost brand new!

Tried, tested, and Cox approved!

You will love them!

Bitchin feeling right?! Getting that huge box, then openning it up and unwrapping all the goods!

I use zip ties for almost all the mount points FYI... In case of a wreck... The zip ties break, rather then having bolts tear through the fiberglass mounting points... Only place I used DZUS was upper to lower, and bottom tail pan to upper tail. The rest is practically zip tied through the mounting holes you will drill... I think I used only 2 actual stock bolts to the frame, and 2 on the front fender, the rest is zip-tied. It helps them give and move a bit in a wreck... Rather then have that fiberglass take the full brunt of the impact...

Awesome tip about the zip ties, and you're right the box was an awesome sight when I walked in the house.
