Default Painted Cut Fairings -or- Unpainted Full Fairings

Was playing with the cut up fairings that came on my bike, trying to make the cuts flow a little better to see if I liked it better with matching cut fairings or unpainted complete fairings. (At least I can afford to get the bike painted)

I really like the look of the cut fairings to be honest. It gives the bike a more aggressive look.

Is your frame slider poking out of the bump on the side there? What have you got that bolted to? Isn't the frame kind of weak in that area?

Yeah... not the ideal place for frame sliders, but I got delkevic fairings and that's where their predrilled holes were. I didn't have sliders before so I just got a cheap set to fill in the hole in the delkevic fairings.

Honestly, I'm trying to make it more appealing to a buyer, as I'm trying to get it sold as quickly as possible because I found an AMAZING deal on a 05 600RR Telefonica replica

Honestly the cut fairings look really good, i would keep them on and give the buyer the choice to swap to the unpainted delkevics if wanted.

Well, list it for sale and offer them both versions. Let them decide for themselves which they like. Best of luck to you, I hope you get what you want for it!

The modified/cut fairing looks great IMO.

Hope you're able to get the 600RR.

Have I overdosed on my cold meds to the point of hallucinating or what? What is going on with that first picture? Surely i'm not the only one that sees it.

It's the otherside of the bike, I flipped the pic so it would be easier to compare.
