I'e heard mixed reivews on those fairings, some say they fit others say they don't. Personally, I'd leave it and just ride it, when the time comes for a new bike then spend the cash on a real repsol.

I'm with tikki, that is unless you NEED to buy fairings anyway. Then I might be inclined to go that route.

Re: 929 Repsol, to be or not to be?

no mine just need to be repainted cause of minor rash from the previous owner and I was thinking either keeping it the stock paint scheme (bumble bee) or painting the original fairings like the repsol design, it'll cost m the same either way, I like whats on it now but I also like the repsol scheme

To be, to be!

I would love to do that to my 929 but in the piece of sh** country I live in (Portugal), every damned package which comes in from outside the EU is stopped and you have to pay a whopping 21% tax (+ other charges to get it out of customs) so its only really a pipe dream....shame

Have a look at the recent posts in the forum, there was someone who bought fairings from those guys in Hong Kong and he had no trouble with fitting them: https://www.fireblades.org/forums/hon...-finished.html

I've bought a Repsol replica jacket from those people selling the fairings, its nice but its made of synthetic leather (really thin) and is only really good for a short ride in the summer.
