Fiberglass "Sharkskin" brand is very very good. OEM style (from china or hongkong) is crap. Real OEM from Honda is very very good but expensive. Race fairing is going to need painted, so that increases the cost, same with repairable real OEM that you could buy on the cheaper side of things. The cheap, crappy OEM style china or hongkong doesnt need painted. I wouldnt spend to much money on fairings, these bikes aint worth a whole lot.

I know im not sure what to do because iv been surfing for a used set that I could paint. But im kinda striking out. So im thinking of buying a "Smoking Joe" kit for 675 shipped to me but like you said they ain't worth much. Kit + paint im at almost 750 ouch.

I was on a big fairing hunt when I got my f2, I picked up the fiberglass ones used, didn't like them at all, very thin and didnt have stock style mounts, got used oem ones off Craig's and they look ok but are missing the posts , have scratches and cracks
I bought just an eBay/china upper headlight and windscreen and worked great, I wish I put my money into an entire eBay kit, the prices on them have dropped lately so I might still buy a whole kit, there's a guy on YouTube that has video of his installed, and even a year later with them
