I am planning on giving my bike a face lift and making it either Full Carbon Kevlar, or Full Carbon Fiber. I was just wondering which would be better for a street/show application. Which will hold up better to daily driving is my main concern. From what I've heard, Carbon Kevlar is stronger than Fiber. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I am actually planning to Make the whole bike Carbon Kevlar... Fairings, Fenders, Upper Headlight housings, Tank, solo tail, etc.

I also have a choice of doing a Titanium body, which I havent taken out of the picture.

dayum!!! you must have some extra time on your hands to tackle such a task. i just hope it doesnt take away from getting to know your new bike. i couldnt do that. in fact i still have some parts still waiting to be put on. i would just rather ride than take it apart and hope i dont fook it up.

From what I have seen in the past carbon-Kevlar is actually less expensive than pure carbon (although it might depend on the company that sells it), Titanium fiber IS awesome looking stuff, but heavier than carbon. Ti fiber is made just like it's carbon equivalent, thin weaved fibers held together by resin. The Kevlar is more flexible than carbon fibers, so in a crash it might fare better.
