Replacement Tank Cover

I've broken several of the OEM plastic tank covers now in various ways. Mostly from crashing but a couple of mounting points I have broken off just dealing with the PITA process to get the tank up. So, I started looking around for something aftermarket, preferably fiberglass so it can be easily repaired. I really don't want to keep buying OEM plastic panels. I wouldn't normally care about the looks of it, but my stompgrip panels mount to the side fairings and without the mounting tabs, the panels start to move around...which is very distracting when you're trying to race.

I came across this:


http://www.arracing.co.uk/shop/produ...roducts_id=326

It's a UK product though. Does anyone know of something similar in the U.S. or perhaps a U.S. distributor? I could always order from them as well I suppose, so any experiences with this fairing?

Yup, i want to go with the pro fiber one too.

I used a doctor glass one and the fit was terrible. I sent it back it wasn't even usuable.


If anyone finds a good fitting one let me know. I'd prefer carbon fibre.

Hey I got this one now.....
ordered it back in Feb 2012. cost me about $172 to get here to USA......
since my tang was bang up...it was ok...I did not want to spend $500+ for new tank parts....
but over all....if it is not used for anything other than a race bike, you will not be happy. Fit is off, and I had to make modifications to get it to fit.

I think i have a huge Gen 4 build album....


Here is the entire build...wreck to race bike.....

Here is the parts with the Pro gas tank...

As pricey as pro fiber is, you'd think the shit would fit....
