race glass is by Bikesplast and I found it to be good quality and good value for money

Real nice of them not to gouge you for the extra $250 after making you wait 6 weeks, though.
I'm still dealing with them to get the race seat I paid for. I am hoping that it works out. What a pain

Damn. That truly sucks.

I bought a spare Gen4 undertail and rear subframe so that I can try to mount my recently re-painted Gen4 bodywork to the new bike. If that works, I'll try to mount the Gen4 tank and covers too. Back to red/black.

Ciao,
I'm mounting the bikeplast full kit fairings ... if you're in doubt, wait a moment to buy, I'm encountering some problems.

I began with tail:
1) they choose to substitute the stock undertail with a new one; it seems really pretty, totally carbon ... yeah, unfortunatelly to dismount the oem it's a nightmare, so keep in mind that time. It's necessary to remove the passenger seat, upper tail, rider seat, lower tail, battery, fender/turn, tank (with 2 hoses)
2) the carbon undertail is shorter than the original, so the fuel pump is totally exposed (while the oem undertail cover more in deep)
3) the undertail seems to tighten just a little too the cabling
4) there are only two bolts to retain, and the four of the fender ... it seems a little light fixment
Tomorrow I'll try to finish to mount the tail .... if the situation does not change, I'm very in doubt if to retain or reject all.

About the front fairing there is an air duct with the holder for the dashboard ... it's means a lot of work to dismount all here too.

I'll give you an update.

The tail section was the easiest part of the entire mount up. They seem to fit great, but the design leaves alot to be desired. The distributor has also been a huge let down.

Have you found that you have alot of hairline cracks in the gel coat?

Just another option: I like Tygon tubing.

I got http://smile.amazon.com/Tygon-Plastic-Tubing-Length-Clear/dp/B00439I1PA?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_search_detailpage over 2 years ago for less than $20, and I still have more than half left.

The 1/4" tubing, and the 5/16" tubing from KurveyGirl work really well for brake reservoir tubing. And Tygon can handle brake fluid or damn near anything without swelling, melting or degrading.
