You know, Id really have to see it on a bike first before Id give an opinion. I do like the new style light it has.

Looks cool! Cool
Just hope you don't plan on running both headlights at the same time though. You'll be taxing the charging system.

Sorry. Wink
Okay, how about this? Very Happy That fairing is actually a PERFECT candidate for a HID conversion. You can run the low beam on one of them and the high through the other and neatly tuck both ballasts inside the fairing out of view. You'd only be using 35 watts at any given time and still have WAY more light than the original. Cool

It might look even better, IMHO, if backed up by 900RR tail end (read late model rounded tail parts) and a 1100R tank. In conjunction with a CBR wheel set,..and maybe VFR style front fender. Get the lower 400F bars on there (or clip-on bars?), and get the fairing as low on the front end as will allow to suit the bar install.

I have faith in him. You can do a bunch with a little photoshop.

I kinda like the look, but I tend to think that the look of the bike is slowely fading away when you go and change so much body work. I like my retro look as long as it's clean and a little modern in it. But I am afraid of making it look like I'm trying to make it look new. Then I might end up with tacky. I want it to look like it came that way from the factory and no one but other owners would even notice.

rat fink is right about the bodywork thing... start changing all the bodywork just tells everyone you want your bike to look like everyone elses.

anyway fookers here is a new photo to chew on...

lower bars cbr900RR fireblade front wheel and rear tail. merging was shakey like primer isn't finished but you get the idea.

I like the fairing. I would not change any other bodywork and just add it to the bike. Rolling Eyes just my opinion... Rolling Eyes

It would not only look better if the whole bike was black, but it would be faster too.

Black is the fastest colour for F's. The blue and red owners are always left to argue about second and third place.

I agree with you, but I think it's more like 3rd and 4th place cause yellow is second fastest. I think I am going black in a short while. Somthing low gloss, and low profile. Make it a sleeper when I get my CR's set. Cool

Seeing this picture they're smaller than I thought they would be.

It almost looks like it bolts into the headlight mounting brackets.

Damn, didn't know what I was starting lol.
Anyways after some investigation but not much, I came up with the site where to get one from they have two styles and prices as well as where to contact to get dimensions of the fairing. This is the place: FlyNCycle Anyways if someone does go this route please post a pic or two or some dimensions here for all of us to see.
Thanks, Gforce598 Cool
