I sold my 929 and picked up a 954 and it needs a left, front and rear fairing replaced. Just looking for some good recommendable places to check out.

I've heard nothing but praise forhttp://www.ozzymotorcyclefairings.com.au an Australian firm that I first read about in the British motorcycle magazine Practical Sportsbike.

I got my fairings from them very good. But they are a reseller of china kits.. Don't know who they use but quality is good but still not oem, not the cbr900 ones anyway I think some moulds are better then others. The gsxr tail they provided was better than oem!! Paint quality is also very good but some rough edges etc but a fraction of the cost of a paint job in Europe. As they say you get what you pay for but overall I think 99% of people would be happy

Lambchops: It was the article about your bike in PS that pointed me in their direction. Great looking bike you have and a lovely article!

If your OEM bellypan was damaged by the roads is it sensible to replace it with a more expensive item that is also likely to get damaged?

Indeed ! I returned from a rally and when stopped at home I noticed something is not so nice and to my shock I noted the belly is damaged ! The sad thing is the set is brand new , the bike and I had a meeting with the tar a year ago and lucky for me only the left side fairings got damaged as my leg saved it from to much damage! ankle broke and looked worse then bike :p

I have done more research on this subject than most so I'll chime in. The main thing to worry about when looking aftermarket is make sure they are INJECTION MOLDED and NOT compression molded yet seems like no one on the forums seem to mention this... There is a huge difference in fitment. Injection molded is usually a little more expensive but not by much. You can still pickup a kit for around $500 shipped.

Injection molded is where your mounting tabs actually look like a stock mounting tab. After much research I found the most positive reviews to be from a company called Fribest. Here is their website: motorcycle fairing kit_fairing stay bracket_headlight

I ordered my first set from them last week and they told me I'll have it in 3 weeks when I ordered. That is faster than anyone on Ebay. They were very willing to customize my kit too which was nice.

Here is a review of one of their kits: http://www.fireblades.org/forums/honda-fireblade/94403-cbr-954-hannspree-redbull-fairing-gp-pipe-writeup-inclusive.html

I will post a review once I receive them in a few weeks
