Re: Optimal Racing fairings

What exactly did you have to cut to get it to fit the 03-05 headers? I'm thinking this might be a problem with most race kits designed for the OEM R6 exhaust.

So what's the crash test verdict on these?

Nancy ill post some pics soon. I think they held up pretty good.

Tail is the worst but I think I can attempt to fix and won't need a new set.

I'm chilling at a parking lot mid ride, looks like it's going to rain. Will pst later.

Riding in the rain is awesome!

Looking forward to a better write up. Glad Optimals are a good choice, though.

Very nice work! Where did you get them? What are they worth?

Re: Optimal Racing fairings

great writeup. Love the paint work.

Looks like Optimals raised their prices. Now $415. Quite a price hike imo. I was going to go this route, but now not sure.

insert witty comment here

Awesome, thanks for writing this up. A buddy and I are pulling the trigger on two sets of these.
