Re: What's A Fair Price?

Auctmarts are good fairings for the price. Personally, I wouldn't pay $1200 for OEM quality fairings and I'm STUPID picky about my bike. Also when you wreck, not ALL plastics get destroyed so ordering OEM stuff from places like partshark.com doesn't end up being all that expensive.

And if you do get oem priced to replace a couple pieces of your plastics, you can buy a who set from Auctmarts painted how I wanted , this is what I did.

People may not buy them, but body shops may. If the fitment and craftsmanship is spot on, body shops would love to save a few dollars. Insurance companies too.

Re: What's A Fair Price?

Overhead is always a factor even at small scale operations. The distribution and allocation of the overhead cost component is what would differ.

Insurance companies are going to pay for oem replacement parts threw the quoted price the shop gives them for an estimate, most shops are not going to buy some random make fairing to fix said estimated repair. Shops do like to make money, but you would be surprised what their markup is on fairings. Plus if I knew that a shop quoted me for the price of an oem and bought aftermarket to fix it I would be pissed. Most riders who do the work themselves are going to go with a better value for fairings with regards to replacing them (you could poll the forum for a sample group if you wanted).

Thats a good question. What's the point of this tread? Are you planing on opening a fairing factory?

Re: What's A Fair Price?

I do not currently know how to make fairings. However, my background and skills give me the know how with minimal reading. My background is in automotive design and mechanical engineering. I've taken many classes, including hands on experience with regards to design and manufacturing applications.

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.
